Gold is about understanding the events that got us here and how they will unfold 
Brokers and traders will show you, "turn your gold into wealth", "put it to productive use, Trade It"! "Sell your gold and buy it again, many times". "Do this and find the value lost from your youth"! But I say, spend your time in the company of truly wealthy ones, see how they make gold lie very still! Know this now, the world will again, in your time, feel value in gold as never before. And that value will be as the "productive use of holding wealth thru the fire of change". "Yes, you can also walk in the footsteps of giants".

A Great Wealth Transfer In Ancient Egypt 
2000 years before Christ, Ancient Egypt enjoyed the benefits of a sophisticated social structure with much of the wealth and trade of the then known world. It was an economy that had been built on grain production and produce from the fertile and agriculturally rich Nile River valley and Nile Delta regions. An estimated 95% of Egypt was unusable desert with little or no rainfall; but regardless of rainfall and local climatic conditions, the Nile river, feed from the vast sub continent of Africa, flooded annually and ran year in and year out, providing a guaranteed water supply to the rich soil of the valley and delta regions.

Where does the term ‘Dollar’ originate? 
The origin of the Dollar can be traced back to Joachimsthal or ‘Saint Joachim’s Valley’ in Bohemia, where silver was discovered in 1519. The local ruler, Count of Schlick, coined the metal into large coins nicknamed Joachims thalers. The coin became the basic currency of the district and neighbouring areas also adopted and imitated theJoachimsthaler – which was abbreviated to the shorter and neaterThaler.
