  1. “By the year 2100, I anticipate that the price ratio of silver to gold will decline to around 15-to-one. So I’m primarily investing in silver, not gold.”

    Is this date correct? That’s 82 years in the future, my grand kids might enjoy my treasure chest I leave them I suppose.

    1. I have just expanded my post with further clarification, as follows:
      The ratio of silver to gold found in the earth’s crust is essentially a constant–around 18-to-one. But what is available above ground is another matter. The amount of silver industrially recovered (recycled) from the electronics industry is trivial compared to the standard practice recovery of gold, in all industries. So in the long term, a lot of silver is ending up in landfills. By the year 2100, I anticipate that the price ratio of silver to gold will decline to around 15-to-one. Even by the year 2040, it should be below 40-to-one. It is presently a whopping 78-to-one. So I’m primarily investing in silver, not gold.

  2. PM markets are heavily manipulated,prices are below extraction costs and don’t reflect the energy expended or the usefulness of the product. Silver has over 40,000 uses and above ground supplies are falling with limited resupply. Ratios will adjust from market forces or be forced(crimimal prosecution for manipulation or fiat crisis) the time frame could be much shorter than 80 years.
