The popular financial press knows nothing about the time value of money

Gold hits over $505 to 23-year high -

Adjusted for decline of the dollar and the rise in housing and education prices since the early 1980s, gold reaching $500 the other day merely means it's recovered maybe 20% its former buying power at its high. Probably a lot lower because gold bullion doesn't pay dividends and there can be storage and insurance costs.
