It's an idea but numerically impossible to back all currency by gold. It would run out in several months of oil trade alone.

All the big powers are buying up gold in huge quantities, because the dollar is no longer a world standard, China and Russia are soon to usurp it, this is common knowledge
It is the standard , if the dollar falls only precious metals or diamonds are good , but you have to realize if the dollar falls , so will all paper money. But don't count your chicken before they hatch.

Because it ain't over ..till it's over.

The dollar can't be replaced without this inevitable consequence.

Please explain how the poor of China, India and other developing countries pay for Americans to sit on their arse. If they are poor, laboring mightily, under compensated, being exploited ... do you really think America is to blame? You've been drinking the kool aid again straa. Here's a hint ... the people exploiting those people live in the same country they do. Oh ... I know there's plenty who escape. They help exploit the poor, get rich, move away, blame America. It's fun, it's profitable and it's a hell of a lot safer than accepting personal responsibility or doing anything about it. Barefoot calls you "Packy" why is that? Are you from Pakistan and living in the UK?

America lives off the money of developing countries, that is a fact, it is them who you owe unbelievable amounts of money too, America lives off the work of poor people in developing nations, and has done for years now

It being true is what makes it true, America is the mist indebted nation on earth, who do you owe all that money to, who is it that you have to borrow off every single day just to exist, that's right, developing countries with large poor populations, they pay your bills, that truth is an inescapable fact
