59. Real wealth? Please
Fort Knox holds roughly 147 million Troy ounces of gold. (fun fact: that's roughly 2% of all the gold ever extracted in human history) at friday's closing price of $1695.95/oz that means the aggregate value is $248,000,000,000. Yes, that's $248 billion. A lot of money, But half the revenues of Wal Mart last year. The GDP of the us last year was $14.58 trillion. Trillion. Trillion. 52 times larger.
