Dr. Stephen Leeb tells King World News that “if I were to target silver for the end of 2012, I’m going to be very, very conservative and say silver will finish 2012 at $60.” Leeb, who’s also the subject of a Beacon Equity Research article about his silver analysis, speaks and writes extensively on China’s growing demand for silver, including, in his new book, “Red Alert.” He recently said in an interview with Gold Seek Radio that “Silver is an utterly critical metal when it comes to renewable energies, solar panels; there’s no other game in town,” adding that “silver-based solar is going to play a major part in our energy future.” He goes on to point out that “China used to export silver, now they’re importing, and they are very big importers.”
