This went totally over my head, Hewitt.

But it does remind me of a question I've been musing. Gold miners took on a lot of debt during the boom (unjustifiably, considering how little cash they were able to generate with the use of it). Now they're looking vulnerable to even worse cashflow as gold prices tumble.

So ... if this foreshadows miner bankruptcies (major bankruptcies?) in the near future, could that hurt gold production, reduce gold supply, and result in prices going back up?

What do you think?
