I notice countries getting on verge for gold, but if gold was to plummet due to becoming an inferior metal, due to new break through's and and research we could surpass the economic rush ruining all weakening dollars? Possibly..? Or better yet , I'm surprised they don't have some mini colliders creating gold, not like we don;t have the tech to start putting certain atoms together!

I don't see how gold would become an inferior metal all of a sudden. Unless 'they' made it so.

I think the value of gold is from its visual appeal and because a lot of people believe it is valuable. It also does not corrode or rust so it has a lot of uses.

Appeal is one thing but what makes gold valuable is it's rarity and its malleability.

Most standards are made from platinum/iridium alloy not gold - and have been superceded by measurements of physical constants on-site, which is more accurate and reproducable.

Technology has already freed us from physical standards.

We can't help ourselves. We will always be obsessed with gold because they programmed it into our DNA so we would keep digging it out of the ground for them. It is why they created us after all.

This is why I love this site. You can be as crazy as you want and you're still not the most crazy one.
