True. But the difference with precious metals is that you can price goods in them.

You can price goods in anything, my friend; you know that.


Why prove things in dollars? I price things in weight. Your sneakers cost 1/10 an oz of gold. What sneakers are they anyway?


Mostly convenience, I guess; everybody takes cash. But I take your point, things can be priced in pretty much whatever we want.

The sneakers are Curry 2.5s; I like 'em.
