The time has arrived where we must understand the realities of the dark forces amongst us.

Recent developments in primary commodity prices have been exceptional in many ways.

The price boom between 2002 and mid-2008 was the most pronounced in several decades – in magnitude, duration and breadth.

The price decline following the eruption of the current global crisis in mid-2008 stands out both for its sharpness and for the number of commodities affected.

Since mid-2009, and especially since the summer of 2010, global commodity prices have been
rising again. While the oil price increases up to April 2011 were modest compared
with the spike in 2007–2008,

[>] food prices reached an all-time high in February 2011.

Paul told Bloomberg Businessweek’s June 20 edition that the government “is asking the American people to trust that all the gold is there, while not allowing site visits and not publishing all the data.”

Eric M. Thorson, the inspector general of the Treasury, said he has seen and accounted for it all.
