Since the beginning of the decade, gold has risen from $200 to $1,100 and gold has risen dramatically over the last several weeks on the decline in the United States Dollar and fear of inflation in the US and other parts of the world.
Recently, Digital Journal
reported that India purchased $7 billion worth of gold from the International Monetary Fund. Digital Journal
also reported in September that China is urging its citizens to purchase gold and silver bullion.
According to Daily Paul
, Mark Dice, founder of The Resistance and proponent of the 9/11 Truth Movement, stood in a California neighborhood near the beach trying to sell a one ounce Canadian gold coin but nobody in the area had the vaguest idea of how much it was worth nor were they interested. Some were not interested just because it was Canadian.
Dice talked to one couple and the gentleman said it is actually worth $200. Majority of people who Dice asked said they did not have any money on them nor would they pay anything for the gold coin, not even $5 or a Starbucks cup of coffee.
In the past, Dice has produced similar videos where he asked students at Berkeley what year the September 11, 2001 attacks occurred and surprisingly no one knew the answer.
