Eric Sprott and Andrew Morris: Follow the money into silver
3:23p ET Friday, April 22, 2011
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):
Eric Sprott and Andrew Morris make the case for silver in Sprott Asset Management's latest essay, titled "Follow the Money." Sprott and Morris conclude:
"What the so-called silver experts neglect to account for in their models and projections is that the fiat money experiment has failed. And in this context, we believe the Market has assigned world reserve currency status to gold -- not USD, not EUR, and not JPY. In our opinion, gold's continued appreciation vis-a-vis every currency is assured because the great flight from fiat has only just begun.
"Like gold, silver also has a long monetary history, and, as such, investors are now also buying silver as protection from the ravages of fiat currency debasement. Yet when compared to gold, it is silver that offers the most attractive value proposition by virtue of the gross mispricing of its scarcity, which, we might add, has existed for many years.
"Thus, in our opinion, as this new bimetallic standard takes root, silver investors will continue to be justly rewarded with marked outperformance. We truly believe that this is the investment opportunity of a lifetime, and, increasingly so, others are taking heed. What is clear to us is that with equal investment dollars now flowing into silver and gold, the current 35-to-1 ratio is unsustainable and has only one direction to go: lower."
Of course Sprott Asset Management, long so heavily invested in silver, is only talking its own book. But what a book, what with the Sprott Physical Silver Trust being up 120 percent since its first issuance last October:
Indeed, more than any other factor, the Sprott silver fund's huge challenge to the fraud of paper silver seems to have been responsible for the fraud's sudden failure.

The Gold Standard Now: It Can Work
Today a dollar is worth 80 percent less than it was 40 years ago, and less than 5 percent of its value a hundred years ago. We deserve a dollar that is as good as gold, a dollar that will hold its value from year to year so we can be financially secure and our economy can generate more and better jobs.
For most of America's history, our dollar was literally as good as gold. But on August 15, 1971, our politicians destroyed the link between gold and the dollar. They destroyed the foundations of our economic system.
A new Internet site, TheGoldStandardNow.org, provides news and cutting-edge analysis about this most important issue and explains how the gold standard worked in the past and how it can work in the future. Visit us today:
