When you hear how much gold there is in the world you'll freak out...

如果你知道世界上总共有多少黄金的话,你一定会被吓到……

there MUST be more 

肯定不止这么点儿!


Gold has been used for thousands of years as currency. 

黄金作为流通货币已经有上千年的历史。

Its distinct color draws people in, and it's pretty rare. But just how rare is it?

它金光闪闪极其诱人,也异常稀有。但是到底有多稀有呢?

If you took all the gold in the world and made it into a cube, it would only measure 20.5m on a side

如果你把全世界所有的黄金放在一起,排成一个立方体,那这个立方体的每条边只有20.5米长。

That's less than the width of an Olympic swimming pool, and that would weight a whopping 166,500 tons!

这比奥运会标准泳池的宽度还短,但是却又重达惊人的166500吨!

Most of the gold in Earth's crust is thought to come from meteors.

一般认为,地壳中的黄金来源于陨石。

The United States has the most gold in reserve of any country in the world at 8133.5 tons.

That's way more than other any country. 

这比全世界的其他任何国家都多。

Germany has the second most with 3396.3 tons.

Only seven countries have more than 1000 tons of gold in reserve, but that number could be false.

只有7个国家拥有超过1000吨的黄金储备,而这一数字还可能是不实。

Many Central Banks in the western world purposefully lease out their gold reserves and hide it with accounting tricks in order to keep the price of gold down.

很多西方国家的央行刻意租赁他们的黄金储备,并采取会计诈骗手段加以掩盖,从而压低黄金价格。

They do this because lower gold prices makes an economy appear more stable.

他们这么做的是因为较低的黄金价格能使得经济看起来更为稳定。
