THE GOLD SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 28 February 1914

THE GOLD SUPPLY. EVRN the most soientifio financial exports differ in opinion as to the precise tffect that the variation in the gold swpply of the world has upon the economic condition of the world's affairs, All that is known with certainty Is that a audden large increase in the output of the precious metal le generally followed by a feverieh activity in commerco, and that a deoreaeo usually bringa in its train a period of depreeion. When the discovery of America, just before the opaciouo days of Elizabeth, re. sulted in the pouring into Europe of the wealth of Mexico and Peru the trade of the olvilized countries went forward with a bound. More pro. green was made in the course of half.a. oentury or so than had been registered doring the previous 200 or 300 years. A similar effect was aeen when, about the middle of the last century, tbo great disoveorioe of gold were made in California and Australia, As the mines of Saoramento, Ballarat, and Bendigo, poured out their treasures, a ...
