How can all these new people come into this market when there has been no increase in supply . . . for the last 12 years?” Sprott’s analysis shows central banks are selling to make up for the shortfall and opines, “I would hate to think what happens when we all find out there is no gold in the Treasury.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Eric Sprott.
