Just rushing over and conquering them is a retarded idea. The sudden overflow of gold would just start a major war and lead to and/or lead to an even worse economy crash. Why not accept the trade offer, allowing for a steady income of gold to earth, repairing our economy back to the old days where all currency was backed by gold, while getting rid of all of our ****? Making loyal allies is far more beneficial than just attacking everything.

You do realize if we conquered a planet made of gold the price of gold would drop to ******* nothing?

We don't have the gold standard so even though it might negatively effect some markets in the end we have an surplus of a precious metal.

depends on how far into space we have gone, if comparatively other planets don't have gold, but the percentage of planets without gold vs ones with gold are the same, than the price would be the same.

OR you could be smart and help electricity evolve, we would have so much smaller electricity requirements if all wires were out of gold, by that i mean the power plants would be more effective, getting power to people more easily, as in electricity travels the best through gold, or silver, idk one of those two. Also you would have less blackouts probably, seeing as gold wires would cost less than copper, so you could make more complicated wiring which means less blackouts, there are a LOT more benefits behind that though.

Actually gold isn't quite as good as copper for wiring. It doesn't conduct electricity quite as well as copper does, but it makes better contacts for connectors due to its slight malleability and resistance to corrosion. Even then only a very thin outer coating is needed in connectors, so we wouldn't really have a need for that much gold in wiring, other than making wires cheaper out of it than any other substance. It would make wiring cheaper if we were willing to sacrifice a little conductivity but it wouldn't actually make anything more efficient unfortunately.

It would be great for other stuff though. Like like solid gold statues. Everybody could afford their own solid gold statue of themselves. Damn that would be cool.

You'd still have to sell it/ introduce it into the economy. This means there would be more supply of gold and basic relationships between supply, demand and price mean that price will go down as a result of more supply.

It's like the oil, they can produce about 4 times that they produce right now but they don't do it becuase they want to keep the price high. They could do the same with the gold.

or we would finally have enough gold to make our wiring more effective for the whole planet.
not to mention better lightning conductors and basically anything to do with electricity.

We could also make better bullets with it, since gold is denser than lead. And we could make all our coins out of gold. Just take a moment to picture pennies made out of gold.

I both agree and disagree with you.

Gold has a LOT more free electrons than copper at the molecular level, but copper has lower resistivity than gold. BUT, copper produces an oxide "layer" at atmospheric conditions making a gold a better conductor because it has better surface contact and takes far longer to disintegrate.

If you use copper in space(or in a vacuum) it's better than gold. But if you use it in computers, like the one you are using right now, Gold is better.

But if you want the best conductor, silver is the best conductor.

I'm just saying about conductors, that includes wiring and conducting surfaces.

If about wires, platinum is THE BEST metal to use, but too goddamn expensive.

Platinum has the MOST free electrons than any other metal, but like copper, produces an oxide layer at atmospheric conditions. The best mix is 68% platinum, 3% indium, 17% silver, 11% gold, 1% other.

It was used in the Hadron collider to "sync" the computers and the collider itself.
(If I get any facts wrong forgive me I'm just a student of MS in Physics)

Why would the king of Gold Planet wear a crown made of gold?
Surely it should be made of wood, or dirt, or something valueable and rare.
