It seems to me that it's a very valid argument in favor of Gold.
Tangible things (and Gold is the ultimate tangible asset ) get more and more difficult to find and extract, whereas intangibles (money, credit and even technology) are commoditized.
The miners, the farmers and maybe even the industrial workers of the world might get some advantages after all.
In the long run, technology is going to be redirected toward real and tangible things, that used to be all important before the dot com revolution.
I remember for example that when we studied Geography (along with History) in High School, we used to examine the natural ressources of a country, along with its climate and lanscapes.
And we could how greatly it determined its economy and even history.
