Can Gold Save The World From the Credit Bubble?

It has been reported that global debt is about $200 Trillion. Central banks supposedly hold about 30,000 tons of gold. If the total debt were backed by central bank gold at 40%, that would price gold about $80,000 per ounce.
The credit bubble has grown so large that the supposed central bank gold would have to be valued at $40,000 to $80,000 per ounce to back all the debt. Revaluing gold higher by a large factor may become necessary in the future to reestablish confidence in currencies. However a revaluation certainly will not be welcomed by central banks, governments, or most individuals. The transition to $80,000 gold, or even $10,000 gold, would be very traumatic.
