As Bloomberg is taken to task for advancing the claim that “Gold is now a bubble compared to US Blue Chip stocks,” a New York Times column suggests possible remedies for a possible gold bubble, prompting Dealbreaker to remark that “of all the candidates we’ve seen for the Next Big Thing in financial crises – student loans, social media stocks, U.S. treasuries – gold looks like a pretty weak contender.” And a Reason magazine blog post offers this experiment:  “Let’s play a game with this bizarre, elitist Steven M. Davidoff column in The New York Times, shall we? Let’s swap out the word gold and replace it with variations on the dollar.”
