One of gold's important properties is psychological, because it is so closely associated with money. This gives it an immeasurable advantage over other tangible stores of wealth.

King Midas of mythology, who could turn everything he touched into gold, had the first fatal case of “gold fever,” the frantic need to seek and hoard gold."
