In all the thrashing about that results from our dwindling gold reserves, it’s about time that this country and other countries get some perspective on the situation. The day this country is out of the stuff, that day gold becomes what it’s worth as a metal and no longer will have much significance as a monetary measurement. It isn’t the gold we have that makes this nation rich. It’s what we make, our knowhow, our productivity. So long as this country produces more and better, the world will continue to want what we make.
