    Incorrect. Gold is expensive because people want it and because it is rare. Merely because something is rare doesn't make it expensive. Iridium is extremely rare, but per troy ounce can't compare to Gold. Many of the elements on the bottom of the periodic table have never exceeded more then a few nanograms at any one time. Are they worth anything? Not really.

    Gold in terms of applicable material usages in industry is a good reason to increase supply. Gold is an excellent conductor as well as does not corrode.

    You do appear very much a luddite.

    I stand corrected, rare, and wanted---I wouldn't give much thought to how I appear though.
