Here is your thread to:
talk about ancient aliens mining Earth for gold and enslaving humans to do so;
talk about Brad Meltzer and the conspiracy theory that Fort Knox is empty (at least of gold);
talk about the intrinsic values of gold (IIRC, it's a great conductor?);
talk about why other things of worth should or should not be tied to gold.
Have fun!

I have previously posted this, but here is a thought. On the subject of gold, man expends vast resources on extracting, and refining gold from the earth so we can secrete in in vaults underground and there it sits. Very rational.

It is hard for me to understand man's irrational attraction to gold, but I acknowledge the truth of it. If it were established that say 20% of the moon's surface contained high grade gold ore or nuggets people would be falling over each other to either build their own rockets or clamoring for Boeing to get them there. Even if they were told that gold isn't valuable enough to make mining it on the moon profitable.

Anyone know what the UK gold reserves are?

Telegraph 310 tons (2011)

Telegraph

Hedge 310 tons (2012)

Hedge

Mail 4600 tons, until you read the last line .....

Mail

You also have to remember that there are activists and 5th columnists out there tying to cause sedition for their own misguided political aims. All governments are corrupt, all the gold is gone, lets all uprise and overthrow the government, power to the peoples revolution! Seti has its fair share of them, because they can peddle their kind of civil unrest here easier than other places.

The scare of after WWII made huge impact on most nations so as a distant continent emerging giant the america had a chance to hold most gold reserve of most countries. I still wonder whether Fort Knox is still the largest gold reserve in the world. Because the warehouse protected by 1200 ICBMs nukes is kind of secure proving ground for most banks. Plus B-2 bombers and F-22 fighters...

If you were to see the "Ft Knox Gold repository" you'd know that they aren't housing gold there anymore. It's out in the open and is quite literaly there for the taking. Armored division and training facility be damned that's not a very secure site.

IIRC most of the Gold is secured in NYC

ID you are talking absolute rubbish. Now come up with facts and figures or please post something sensible!

USA gold reserves

The United States Bullion Depository holds 4,578 metric tons (5,046.3 short tons) of gold bullion (147.2 million oz. troy). This is roughly 2.5% of all the gold ever refined throughout human history. Even so, the depository is second in the United States to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York's underground vault in Manhattan, which holds 7,000 metric tons (7,716 tons) of gold bullion (225.1 million oz. troy), some of it in trust for foreign nations, central banks and official international organizations.

How much has been 'so called' sold? Who owns what?

What a country does when it sells, like yours, 400 tones of it at a time is drive the price of it down. How many times has that been done? How many times has the USA done that? You will soon find that more gold has been sold then refined.

And you didn't answer mine! Who owns it?!?

Your country sells it to us, left pocket! We sell it back to you, right pocket! You sell it to China...etc, etc.... It just destroys the price of gold and the worth of the pound/dollar.
