Gold in the Age of Doom and Gloom

A nice Taiwan motif done in gold that I saw at Just Gold across from SOGO. Too bad gold prices are so high lately! I wonder if their business is hurting or is booming

And that's a funny thing about gold in hard times. It's interesting to note the Chinese obsession with things golden which can similarly be found in other places in the world like India. Gold, they say, is always useful in financial hard times so it doesn't hurt to have some stored away.

Gee, in these days of financial doom and gloom are we going to go back to melting down jewelry to make gold ingots to buy stuff or trade? Get out those antique gold weighing scales!
