Henry Knox - now there's a name you don't hear very often.  Sure, lots of folks recognize the name Knox when it's related to Fort Knox in Kentucky. Yes, Fort Knox is named after the first secretary of war (both under the U.S. Constitution as well as the Articles of Confederation) for the fledgling United States of America. Interestingly, Fort Knox is not only the home of the repository of our U.S. gold reserves, but also the home of the U.S. Army's armor school. Armor, for the uninitiated, is the current “cavalry.” (For you veterans, I know the difference between cavalry and armor; heck, I even know the difference between “air cav” and “ground cav.”)

What's up with gold? Mostly, the price. Right now, a troy ounce of gold is worth more than $1,800. Just two years ago, it was $950, a spike of nearly 90 percent. Gold has always been a store of value in uncertain times. And we definitely are in uncertain times. Because of its rarity, gold holds its value whereas a paper money system is subject to inflation and depreciation.   Gold measures the real value of goods. In real terms, gasoline prices are lower now than in the 1920s.
