On Returning to the Gold Standard

by Michael Nystrom
June 20, 2007

This article also appeared on Bull! Not bull 

There were a couple of interesting pieces yesterday on TheStreet.com about the possibility of a return to the gold standard. The article: Ditch the Fed, Go Back to Gold made the front page, and embedded within the article was a link to a video interview with the author, Simon Constable. Gold has obviously come a long way in the last decade in terms of public awareness. Rising inflation has generated considerable interest in the so-called “barbaric metal.”

At first blush, both the article and the interview appear to give the gold standard a fair hearing, but both ultimately reject the idea as unworkable. This rejection is based on some faulty underlying assumptions as well as some muddled thinking. In an attempt to clarify the some of these issues, I have transcribed the interview and interjected some of my own comments from my vantage point here in the peanut gallery. I wasn’t invited to the interview, but that won’t stop me from participating in it on behalf of gold bugs everywhere!

Jesus Soft on Crime!

This is from Mad Magazine, circa 2004. It is instructive on how very simple messages get twisted during a political campaign. Something to keep in mind going forward.

Happy Father's Day, Dr. Paul,

 

I nominate you Father of this year, the inaugural year and all of the other years you have fought for my freedom and the freedom of my children, grandchildren and future generations. A special thank you to Carol for the sacrifices your family has made on our behalf.
