Lot of ordinary  folks lost their 401K savings and retirement pensions due to the stock market repetetive speculations and mini-crashes since3 2001.The fall and rise of gold now is attracting the concentrated wealth of the few as a safe haven against a weak paper dollar that is not backed any more by the presious metal.People are spending less as they are making less.Jobs are outsourced to foreign countries like Chinaand India.Farms are relocating to Mexico as the illegal immigrant population is being deported  and local farm unluvrative jobs do not attract citizens who are used to fringe benefits,insurance,401K etc..
