Just saw a posting about Pink Flloyd and the Wizard of Oz. Reminded me of... A while back I heard a great rendition of the theory that the Wizard of Oz was all about the gold standard hence the oz, the yellow brick road, etc. and all the characters were portrayals of historical figures involved in the debate about the gold standard. I cant link to that particular story but got a bunch of hits just putting in Wizard of Oz and gold standard. Interesting stuff.
