Sometimes what at first appears to be conflicting information is anything but, and what was originally considered to be opposing forces or ideals can quickly become unified for the greater good.
There has been much discussion and division over whether the world was moving towards a multilateral super-sovereign reserve currency by way of the Special Drawing Right of the International Monetary Fund or towards a new gold standard by which all currencies would be valued once again on gold.
Positions have taken up defense on both sides and all waited to see which side was going to be right. Were the BRICS countries going to overthrow the western banking cabal? Was the US dollar going to inflate into oblivion? Was the SDR going to become the new reserve currency? Was a new gold standard going to be implemented instead?
If gold does become a currency again, which it always was anyway, silver is sure to benefit as it will be both a commodity and a currency.
