CONCLUSIONS 


US GDP declined 164 million ounces of gold
for each 1 point decrease in SAT scores. 

SAT Scores and gold.htm 
Decreasing
total expenditures for education from 7.9% of GDP to 4.8% (a level equivalent to Japan)
would save taxpayers $232 billion/year.

Increasing SAT
Scores 98 points could increase GDP by the equivalent of 16.1 billion ounces of gold, or
$4.9 trillion. 



Failure to aggressively research and correct this problem is a
multitrillion dollar loss to more than just taxpayersit condemns our youth to lifelong
social pathologies.
