Kathy from Alpharetta, GA
Is there any way for someone in the agriculture business to protect against the oncoming inflation? It seems that our agriculture communities will be hit hard with expensive commodity prices because their savings get plowed back into the farms.

Mark from Heartland, WI
I’m a big believer in gold and especially silver. With only $1,500 and an additional $100 to $150 a week to invest, how can I get max leverage and exposure to gold and silver?

Mitchell from Melbourne, Victoria
If America decides to do the right thing and raise interest rates, will this actually cause dollar appreciation and a fall in gold and silver? How do you see this scenario happening even if America does raise interest rates, will you expect the dollar to still collapse?

Jim from Highlands Ranch, CO
Will any states default on their current bond obligations and if so which ones first?

Mary from Houston, TX
Regarding confiscation, if the government does not know about my bullion, but later I sell and have to report it on my taxes – then what? Can they retroactively impose a bigger tax than say capital gains?
