Gold is easier to manipulate by individuals

than from a government system ..Goldman Sachs can simply not circulate the gold, driving the price higher. Same problem as today. All forms of currency can be manipulated. Government, or originator, stands a better chance of correcting manipulation than an individual would have. They also have more power to manipulate. The two powers go together.
