Money Quote Friday – Solid Gold Edition.

When I learned about how the value of money went from being based on something tangible, i.e. gold, to being based on well, absolutely nothing, it was an eye-opening experience. And on that note, I leave you with this for the weekend:

“You have to choose [as a voter] between trusting to the natural stability of gold and the natural stability of the honesty and intelligence of the members of the Government. And, with due respect for these gentlemen, I advise you, as long as the Capitalist system lasts, to vote for gold.” – George Bernard Shaw

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

    That’s a brilliant quote, and I bet all gold dealers would agree! I have lots of silver, but I’d like gold too! Silver has been doing great by me.
