Re: Discussion: The Economy, Fiscal Cliff, National Debt, And Other Financial Issues
I don't know why people put so much stock into gold. (heh, unintended pun)
It's just another commodity. And because it's traded so heavily and used as a financial back up, it sometimes considered a currency.
Plus, most of the value of gold comes not from its useful properties, but from it's use in jewelry and fine art. In essence, luxuries.
And if anything takes a hit during down times, it's luxuries.
I don't care about your deathmatches. Don't even ask. I'll just report it as spam.
