17. According to NPR on Thursday,
persons invested in gold stand to gain. A caller pointed out that the Tea Party is part of the Glenn Beck faction of the RW, where buying gold is a big idea. The host and guest expert taking the call didn't disagree with the core idea, but were quick to disclaim the idea that anyone involved might be engineering the situation while being poised to profit from it.

Personally, I keep thinking of Mr. Potter increasing his wealth and power by taking advantage of the 1929 collapse, in, y'know, that Jimmy Stewart movie.
