Yes!if something is going to be scarce,then it will be foxed a high rate and it can be easily understood.Even now we are ready to spend money on mineral waters.So,it will not be a surprise,if people have to spend $100 for a glass of water.Realities are stranger than fictions.

hi alishia no that is really interesting.I did know that everything got really expensive. I guess there were too many people and too few of everything to go around so most everything was really expensive. all those people came looking for gold and I wonder how many ended up not getting anything for their endeavors.
