42. Gold and land ownership indeed have real world value
Yes the banking system and paper money turned out to be revolutionary. But I am shocked that there are people that believe gold doesn't have value.

Anyways, what Chavez is doing is ensuring that his country has more freedom to negotiate as he pleases what is best for Venezuela. The reason Chavez is announcing this is because Democracies require a level of transparency. It is not Chavez' gold, but the people of Venezuela. Public assets, expenditures and goods need to be transparent for a Democracy, but apparently most Americans do not realize this.
