Gold was a new one.

Harry Rogers, True! The price of gold is determined by the amount of gold we have. If the extra gold went into the supply chain, gold would become worthless. But the price could be artificially defined by a company or entity controlling the amount that was available. This is how the price of diamonds is kept high.

The Earth and Moon were formed by the collision of two protoplanets. There is no evidence for any body other than the Moon orbiting the Earth.

Interesting thing about gold. The reason why gold is expensive is because it is rare. If gold were more plentiful and readily available, then the price of gold will drop drastically.

Lucette Rouleau, If gold were lying around on earth’s surface that thick, dirt and salt would be far more valuable! 😂
