[10] This writer has argued elsewhere that gold and silver, when used simply as a store of value, as in gold bars, should be taxed, like other forms of Land, under a Georgist paradigm, since gold and silver are two of very few metals that never rust, degrade or age.  The amount of wasted human and natural resources used simply to store gold and silver bullion, plus the under-taxed pollution costs of this intensely polluting industry, makes it something that should be paid for by those who operate it.   George said: "We have deliberately substituted a costly currency for a cheap currency; we have deliberately added to the cost of paying off the public debt" We are digging silver out of certain holes in the ground in Nevada and Colorado and poking it down other holes in the ground in Washington, New York, and San Francisco." (Soc Problems, pg. 168)
