Welcome to Bill’s blog.
Here you will find comments and articles on developments related to owning and investing in precious metals bullion. Posted comments and articles will deal with the best forms for investment purposes, current trends, and monetary developments, which traditionally drive investors to precious metals.
Many investors mistakenly think that investing in precious metals is simple and straight-forward. And, it is—provided you have first learned to recognize the dangers that await you. For starters, no first time investor should commit to any purchase without first reading our Myths, Misunderstandings and Outright Lies which points out the dangers of buying gold and silver without at least basic knowledge of the market.
President of CMI Gold & Silver, Inc.
A graduate of the University of Colorado, Bill Haynes has been 42 years in the investment world, with 37 years as a precious metals bullion dealer. He has headed CMIGS since 1973.Reading Bill’s posts, and CMI Gold & Silver’s website, which he wrote, you will quickly learn that he has remained faithful to gold and silver as the best forms of protection against currency debasement, never once promoting high-priced collectible
coins, which offer much greater profits to dealers but less protection to buyers.
Bill’s Myths, Misunderstandings and Outright Lies, a warning about the dangers of collectible and numismatic coins, has achieved legendary status among gold and silver investors. No first time investor should write a check without first reading Myths, Misunderstandings and Outright Lies.
Bill sees, with massive inflation by the Fed to finance our welfare state and foreign wars, a greater need to own gold and silver now than any time in his 37 years as a bullion dealer. With this blog, Bill hopes to educate still more Americans to the benefits of owning gold and silver.
Paul is a graduate of the University of Illinois where he earned a MS in Materials Engineering. He has had the unenviable experience of having been caught in the middle of the last two economic bubbles. First as a semiconductor process engineer during the dotcom collapse and later as a sales manager during the credit market meltdown of 2008. Frustrated by the fact that no one in the mainstream media was able to credibly explain what had happened, he made the decision to become his own expert. He approached the study of economics as an engineering problem, focusing on the numbers and letting the math draw the conclusions. From there it didn’t take long to figure out that the Dollar was in trouble.
A proponent of the Austrian School of Economics, Paul has come to the conclusion that the fundamental problem lies in our system of fiat money and fractional reserve banking. He calls it the fraud that hides in plain sight as it is virtually impossible to see without someone first pointing it out. His goal in writing is to help educate those around him as to how this system of wealth transfer works and what individuals can do to protect themselves.
