Don't imagine there is a Gold Standard. The government makes no promise and is under no obligation to back your dollar with Gold. The Gold sitting in Fort Knox is intended for them, not you.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Nixon abolished the gold standard back in late summer of 1971 and went to a floating rate T bill standard.This signaled the beginning of the end of sound money.
so sound money is in gold? and is gold money? last i checked nobody's accepting gold for groceries
but they promised everything was going to be ok !
