  1. If there’s no gold left, just buy silver, it will double in price within two years, according to Money Morning.

    • Silver is tipped as one of the first resources to be depleted and unavailable to humanity. WE well be obtaining it from old electronics solder (eWaste) on an ever increasing scale in the future.
