A lecture with funny bits by financial writer / comedian, Dominic Frisby about the amazing metal that is gold – its history, its fascination, its future. Older than the solar system itself, gold has captivated humans since the Stone Age and driven them to do the most extraordinary things. But does it have any future in this digital age? The Times say Dominic is 'outstanding'. The Telegraph says he’s 'excellent'. The Spectator says he is 'mercurially witty'. Even The Guardian admits he 'can be entertaining'. In the room where Adam Smith completed Wealth of Nations.
