Even if that were true, does not effect the value of gold.

there are metals that will always have value, gold, silver, certain gems...

other food stuffs and supplies will be valuable as well but that stuff is consumable or will spoil. gold will always have value and be in demand.

i guess being rare does carry value, but it will certainly not be more valuable than food when the shit hits the fan.

So? What kind of ignorant statement is that? On one hand you have history proving something, and on the other you have your assumptions. Which is valid? Not your assumptions thats a BIG hint.

I dunno, social evolution maybe? Slavery? Gone after milennia. Religious obscurity? Gone. Racism? Gone. All these parameters were socially universal thru out history, and are now deceased. I AM assuming that trade system will go as well sooner or later, because it is a step forward in social evolution. Globalization and unification should mean equality in all sectors of human need. If you wanna take what i said into absolute meanings, sure go ahead.

You bring up even more points that have nothing to do with the subject. You just seem to be squirming to try and defend your ego rather than admitting you are wrong.

Nope not really. This was not even a debate. Its fact vs fiction. Prove you lose a debate by insulting. I don't really care in the end, if Dray thinks he is right and everyone else who has any brains on the matter thinks he is wrong, *shrugs*

Dray The Fingerless wrote:THE OPTIMAL would be a resource distribution system. and yes, there is enough in this world for everyone to live in good confort and a bit of luxury.

I agree completely. This is this society I have dreamt of as the most equitable.

But more on this "gold standard"

Money is only recognized because WE recognize it as valuable. The same goes for gold.

Look at your economic and US history:

what happens when you run out of specie at the bank? You get crises like the one during Jackson's Presidency.

More over, the gold standard exacerbates the business cycle, businesses don't like that, in fact, businesses supported Wilson's establishment of the first truly central bank, the Federal reserve.

Trying to fight inflation and deflation with the gold standard? Good luck, you can't.

Run on bank? How do you get that specie back? The banks collapse, financial ruin galore.

So ya, not really, not even Hamilton was silly enough to see gold as the main vehicle for transaction.

Of course, our methods of transaction will change over the years, what remains clear is this, we will not trade gold as tender.

because when u bring in some1s personal standpoint than u stray off from the topic and show that u have no counter arguments. If he was being ignorant say so. I don't think he was.

It's really not surprising in an age where we have corporations owning all news outlets who are in turn regulated by the FCC who in turn is run by people picked by the politicians who in turn are elected off contributions of these companies and their shell corporations.

Don't be fooled, the government is run by corporations, and it's profitable for corporations to take over a country with a natural resource to help corner the market and increase the size of their pocketbooks.

Means nothing if the global economy collapses. Gold will be valuable, your toilet paper dollar bills will not, nor will sea shells, nor anything else except maybe food and weapons.

I said so, so whats your point? You have none, and you still have not proved anything. I can say you are a fucking douchebag and still have a point with the rest of my comment.

I think in your life time you will find out exactly what I mean when it comes to gold. If not, in your childrens lifetime. The rich can only fuck over the poor through politics so long before people snap.

Oh and..

Hello Posters. Look at your comment. Now back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

Anything is possible when you think before you comment or post.

I'm on a computer.

I must disagree. Money representate ammount of gold, silver and other valuable minerals that country have stored. But how do you imaginate life witout money/gold ? Back to barter like hundreds years ago ? You will cross whole country with tons of resources to exchange it for tons of for example food ? That may work only with small population but no when we talk about millions of people. And about inflation and deflation - those are strictly connected with gold so yea you can fight with them using gold.
