    reasonable period of time: def. Period of time that supports the poster's argument.

    "The gold-silver ratio goes up over any reasonable period of time [1920-1940, 1970-1990]."

    "The gold-silver ratio goes down over any reasonable period of time [1940-1970, 1990-2010]."

    Yeah brilliant to bring up a time period where the govt set the GSR.

    The silver side says the govt had set the GSR at 16 but since it is now determined by market forces, the GSR is 82. Yet you all want to argue about which is superior. The game is over and you lost. Yeah I know I know its because the "manipulators" are cheating you. SMH.

    I Started this thread 1 year ago in response to the constant nonsense posts about buying silver then swapping for gold and getting extra gold. As idiotic as this idea was it was always accepted as brilliant strategy or at least never called out for the nonsense that it is.

    So here we are 1 year later. The GSR that was certain to fall has EXPLODED over the last year. I would say that none of us will ever see the GSR in the low 60s again in our lives. And that is at best a break even point for those who really went silver as they were claiming.

    Game over. Silver lost. Again.

    Government controlling the GSR from 1990-2010? I thought by that time they'd privatized that function and turned it over to the Illuminati.

    Ah, yes. And when you select an endpoint for your "reasonable period of time", you get to say "game over". You win! Yay!

    GSR ticking back towards silver lately. Under 78:1 at the moment. Hardly a reason to celebrate.

    Yes, but I did once show up at a meeting of the Council on Foreign Relations. I got my official "all-seeing eye" merit badge, too. You can get their podcasts here:
