It was reported on the radio this morning that gold shot up eight dollars last week to $537 an ounce. At first I was amazed that in the Technology Age with falling oil reserves, rapid advancements in bio- and nano-technologies, the ascendancy of the internet, and, of course, a Global Struggle Against Terror Related Activities, we are still trading gold on the stock market. But it was put into perspective when the reporter noted the $3.15 rise in Jangly, Shiny Objects (to $132 an ounce) and a $1.97 rise in Pretty (to $408 an ounce).
