    but I can do what I want, cause it's my diary:

    What is the biggest downside to the gold standard. In the interest of educating my seemingly exponential growth of Paul fanatic friends on facebook. You're an economist. I'm a political scientist. I think I know, but you would know if you know. :)

    I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve. ||@totushek on twitter

      This works similar to diamonds, which are quite plentiful. There's no diamond shortage. Not even close.

      If there was no diamond cartel, they'd sell at less than 10% of what you see now.

      Gold price is an artificial figure. It is manipulated. And similar to diamonds, there are vast gold veins and slags that could be tapped at will.
