Gold. Panned for in ’49, coveted by pirates, and sold as a thin film on the worthless coins pushed on late night TV, gold still has control of our imagination. I would certainly love to have gold; about 100 pounds of the stuff would set me up just so. Yes sir, if I had 100 pounds of gold, I would sell it and take the cash.
“But why would you want U.S. dollars, when the dollar is losing value? Gold has a value all its own, dollars are only backed by trust.”
