I hope we can return to a gold standard,

Preferably a 1 : 1 ratio like the classical gold pool of the 1870's. BTW I think you meant $10,000/oz. In any regard, if we went back to a gold standard, we will go through devaluation at the same time. Say it takes $10,000 to buy one oz, the money supply would be contracted to make it $100 to buy one oz, all the while that $100 being worth $10,000 of today’s USD's.
