Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Gold Regains Its Luster:


Turn the chart upside down and it is a report card on the dollar. The dollar never recovered from the breaking of the gold standard in '71.

Intelligent people will agree that no fiat currency has ever been sustained in history. It's a simple fact. But those same people believe that our fiat dollar can go on forever. That is cognitive dissonance.

By the way, the price of oil measured in gold has remained constant for about a century.
