    Gold is no more valuable than elephant tails. It only has value if there is a collective recognition of value by society; otherwise, it's just another mineral.

    I agree with this to a point, my problems with Jackson, though, were that he actually profited from seizing land from the Indians and it was the brutality with which he implemented his policies.

    Lord Keynes: "Gold is a barbarous relic."

    I always like to ask the gold bugs if they are a barbarian, a relic, or both.....
