|John - He's a strange bird, imo. I agree that his calls have been correct, but it seems that they come along with a heavy dose of schadenfreude and I am not sure where that is coming from. Also, given that he works for Kitco, it seems odd that he seems to revel in poking fun at the people that buy their products. |
I saw him give a presentation in New Orleans last year that was a very moving story of what gold had meant to his family, having literally saved their lives in escaping war-torn Europe. His message, as I recall it, is that everyone should own a little gold, but not worry about the price because it is for safety and survival, not for speculation. I don't know if his never-ending tit-for-tat with the GATA folks is the motivation for his continual tweaking of the goldbugs, but I am not a psychoanalyst.
