Thought for the day: The bad news is, the economy might collapse into a deflationary depression, which will drive the price of gold up. The good news is, the economy might take off in a technology and oil boom recovery, which will send inflation sky high and drive the price of gold...up.

Michael Pento: Money Supply to Hit $24 Trillion, More Bubbles & Higher Gold

Thought for the day: Previously I wrote that we should expect a faux recovery in 2012. As noted below by Robert Wenzel, the economy is improving. Higher inflation will follow, followed by higher interest rates, which will kill the recovery. Until then, use this temporary reprieve to pay off debt and to buy gold and silver.

Dr. Steve Sjuggerud: The Trend Has FINALLY Turned in Real Estate - Chris Mayer expresses a similar opinion, and there is a very good case to be made for buying rental properties. The big IF, in my opinion, is that I believe we are in a false recovery as the Fed and federal government strain to pump up the economy in this election year. I expect this "recovery" to collapse sometime between mid-2013 and 2015. So property values may take another big hit before they finally bottom.
