QUESTION: Are you going to include the Black Death Channel in gold you published back in the 1980s?
ANSWER: Yes. That has been updated until 2012. For new readers, gold had vanished from the monetary system in Western Europe and the first appearance of gold coinage after the 7th century took place during the 13th century. Like Japan, there was no gold coinage for about 600 years. This is a chart we created using gold, commodity prices, the British Pound, and currency movement to create a synthetic gold perspective 1264 to 2012. The Black Death Channel is the start of a free market economy as wages began and society began to poke its head out of the Dark Age. Recreating that amount of data took a lot of effort. However, beside the visual impact, it enable the computer to grasp the real breath and scope of the trend long-term. This is where 2017 comes from.
