So, i was watching a youtube video on the fall of the roman empire and its relation to economics. Summary: Gold stood the test of time for value vs inflation (Roman Govs. diluting its gold coins). However... in today's world, to maintain a storage of value. We'd have to consider the effects of capital gains tax? i.e. if Gold soars to 10k USD an ounce... wouldn't the tax effects negate the storage of value that we are trying to maintain?
