It seems that the British MSM have said it first- OECD figures suggest Britain's economy will slip back into recession at the start of next year - Telegraph The reason is cause for some debate: (1) Could it be from the UK trying to distance itself from the Euro and getting backlash from the EU? (2) Austerity, Hell! And the straw that broke the camel's back ? (3) An editor finally gets to print what he should have since 2010? I do like how they have a definite timeline in the article, like it hasn't been going on yet, but it will in a few weeks. What about how the Gold and Silver markets tanked this week, what do you think the implications of a slightly stronger Dollar in relation to the Euro will do to the PM market? At some point it has to go back up, so right now is a good time to buy, as long as the coin shops have any silver left... Any thoughts from the myriad of Monkeys out there? I'd be especially interested in some opinions from across the pond as you guys know what's going on there better than we (Yanks) do.
