Hm? I could've sworn that gold, in the world of economics, was the bees knees. And isn't the US dollar supposedly backed by gold??? I'm confused.......

The USD is backed by nothing more than a promise. It has no physical backing like it had when the gold standard was around. There is no promise for physical delivery of any kind with the current fed notes.

Yeah thanks for the info. I could've sworn my economics teacher told me the USD was backed by how much gold we have.
