First Majestic Produces Silver and Gold in the United States and Mexico

With about $30 trillion tied up in dollars and dollar-denominated financial assets, foreigners are bound to become substantial sellers -- even panicking at times.
The implications are very far-reaching. This article limits its scope to big-picture developments in prospect for 2023 but can be regarded as a basis for further debate. ...
