Not right of Adam Hamilton in his article to leave out the key fact that the Hunt brothers were trying to corner the silver market by accumulating over 100M ounces from the early 70's up to 1980, which is what drove the price of silver up so high relative to gold.

A little bit more honesty would have been better.

We know that silver has very good fundamentals going forward or we wouldn't be here. Nevertheless there are hypsters out there who present a lopsided view of the past.
