Many of you readers know that I am in touch occasionally with FOFOA (fofoa.blogspot.com) and at times with other bloggers.
Recently I have had the chance to exchange views with another (new to me) blogger. We crossed swords (in a gentlemanly way) at first over the issue of Freegold and my view of what the marginal value of gold is and would be for various kinds of holders (small and large). We have since found that our views are actually closer together than we first thought, on various topics (economics, role of government and others). So, anyone interested in Austrian Economics and those who like (or can deal with) math might want to take a look at his apparently specialized blog (as opposed to my looking at various subjects):
Our recent correspondence has been about a mathematical model that might model value of marginal ounces of gold for physical buyers. I have not thoroughly explored his site, but his comments at Zero Hedge seem pretty intelligent, and what I have seen to date has been pretty good. In an email to me, he wrote that he (like me) uses his blog to explore and better clarify his thinking, while at the same time getting word out…
Here are some other blogs that are of interest to me, and with whom I correspond:
http://www.coultersmithing.com/forums/index.php ß run by a research scientist
http://somanyroadsinvesting.blogspot.com/ ß an investment site
http://www.pmbug.com/ ß he runs a nice precious metals forum style website
So, as the next day or two clocks by (check out the US Debt Widget above, it is about to tick over $16 trillion…), I would encourage others to check out the above!
I am thinking (but have not yet decided) of just kicking the doors open of my blog, and just go “full retard” (pimping my blog more openly). It looks like one of my main fears of doing so, namely that of “Computer Monsters” coming to get me has been resolved.
Reader comments are encouraged!
I have some ideas of new articles to write. One of them will probably be a “Basic Facts” article on silver. Which is fine, but I REALLY need a full-throated and knowledgeable Silver Bull to come and write a Guest Post (“The Case For Silver” or similar) at my blog. I clearly prefer gold for holding the bulk of $-value of my holdings, but I want to see a good case argued for silver.
Any volunteers or authors needing fame?
Finally, I read an amusing line I had not seen before (at Zero Hedge’s Z Chat – Warning Label: very addictive!), but is probably seen all over:
“Everyone now has a blog.”
Seems so true, no?
