The world's stuck on hand of gold ia
estimated at about 14,500,000,000 (four
billions, five hundred millions of dollars);
the world's annual product of gold is
$225,000,000 (two hundred and twenty -
five millions of dollars). This supply is
met by an unlimited demand for it as
Suppose, however, this unlimited
money demand for gold should be stoppe;!
(as it would be by the d monitization of
gold), what would be the remaining de?
mand for it? The director of the mint of
the United States estimates the annual
consumption of gold by the whole world
in arts iind manufactures at only $52,
is;l,7:i(>. That is the yearly demand for
gobl left it after the money demand for it
be destroyed: and this remtiiuing demand
does not amount to one-fourth cf tho
world's annual production of gold, with
a surplus stock on hand, to begin with,
of four billions live hundred millions of
dollars ($4,500,000,000) of gold to be dis
posed ot. Supposing the production and
supply to continue at the present rate,
this vast surplus of gold would be aug?
mented annually by tho sun. of one hun?
dred and seventy two millions, eight hun?
dred sixteen thousand, two hundred and
sixty-four dollars ($172,810,20-1). Add
only one year's surplus of supply over
demand to the amount now ou hand, and
we have an aggregate surplus of four
billions, six hundred and seventy-two
millions, eight hundred and sixteen
thousand, two hundred and sixty four
Now, if .with a full or unlimited de?
mand, gold now is worth one dollar for
every 2;i.S grains, what would it be worth
