They say that all the gold ever mined, in the history of the World, would only fill up two Olympic sized swimming pools. If that's the case and the World's paper currency failed, leaving gold as a primary means of storing wealth, even a very small quantity of gold would make one very wealthy. Ironically, this is the same argument used by some to explain why such a thing could never happen.
Still, having a little bit of gold couldn't hurt. That's why so many people are buying it and the prices keep going up.
Right now, you'd have a real hard time buying anything with gold and whenever you exchange money for gold or gold for money you pay a Hell of a premium.
What's a boy to do.
