Re: A thought on Gold Pressed Latinum.
Is latinum like gold or silver, something that can be made into a Giffen good, or is it tinkerbell money like dollars: Money that dies if we stop believing in it? I think in a few cases I've heard people refer to 'Latinum earrings', so I would guess the former.
In an episode of DS9 Quark and Rom discuss how the bathroom fixtures at the Nagus's palace are plated in Latinum. Quark even says he intend's to remove those and replace them with Solid Latinum ones. ( this is when he thinks he's going to be the next Nagus ) this makes me think its a crafting material.
