If currencies are not backed by gold

Why do people want it so much?

For use in wedding bands and computers?

I am starting to think this was all just a bubble (okay so you will always win a little long term with inflation but it seems to be overinflated).

Going to stay out of it and buy something that is always useful and can help produce food for me to eat and shelter for me to live in.

I am buying land because they are not making any more of it.
