When the US went off the gold standard in 1971, all currencies essentially became fiat monies, with their value derived from the governments that issue them rather than from commodities. This was the birth of instability of floating currencies. This is why gold is powerful.Gold isn't about getting you rich, gold is about preserving value and purchasing power -- avoiding what makes you poor.
