And it just proves the point that no matter what I reveal about myself, you'll try to use it to undermine anything I say anyway. The only tip I've given any of you is that gold is overvalued at this point. If it keeps going up at this point, it's too high to be worth buying any more because it's going to come back down. Why you think that means I don't hold any gold at the moment underscores my point above yet again.


is that basically the same as saying the dollar is going to go up, since gold/dollar act inversely? If that is the case, why do you think the dollar will go up? The Tea Party Death Squad?

Greek has displayed pages and pages of econ posts, not even getting into right or wrong.

I have maybe seen one post from Dave in an attempt to get all economic on someones azz.

Greek is the winner on volume/participation alone

I don't know if I'm more qualified than pimpdave. I've certainly posted more on the subject than pimpdave. I'm also readily willing to admit I don't know something. As I stated in this thread, I didn't know that the economic theory I believe in was from Chicago; I didn't know that clever people referred to Atlas Shrugged as Chicago Economics pornography; I didn't know that a neurologist was a successful hedge fund manager. There are a lot of things I don't know; there are a lot of things about economics I don't know.

In any event, volume and participation does not make one an expert.

'Expert' actually also had a verb form (hundreds of years ago), in addition to noun and adjective forms. The verb's definition was: 'To experience; to know by experience'---coming from Latin experīrī 'to try/experience.'

Not relevant to discussion at hand really, but I've always been interested in words, word origins, and how words change over time.

But maybe this is something else you didn't know, TGD! :D I'll add to your knowledge if you didn't already.
