incendi: DarnoKonrad: People need to understand a lot of things, but it doesn't really matter when some still think gold is "real" money.

It's not so much that gold isn't real money, it's the implication that it's somehow realer money than any other easily traded commodity or what they derisively refer to as fiat money.

I used this term in a sarcastic, sneering sort of way in a conversation with my knee-jerk conservative brother-in-law at the last July 4th family get-together. (Pointless, I know.) He kept giving me strange looks and finally asked what Italian cars have to do with "fake American money."
