Hey guys I don't know if you noticed much or at all but, Roseanne Barr is running for PM of Israel and she has an interesting idea, a food standard currency. Honestly, I've played around with the idea in my head a while back and a food standard all ways seemed like it would work well to restructure capital into the hands of every person. but overheat and cause insane inflation as anyone can print money equivalent to the size of their land requiring that there would therefore be no private property rights possible and that long term habitation of a residence also be an impossibility.
NEW YORK — The next big step in the gold standard debate is going to be taken next month at Washington, when one of the original members of the Reagan-era United States Gold Commission offers a five-step plan to return America to sound money.
The architect of the plan, Lewis Lehrman, a businessman and scholar, will present his program in an address October 5 at a conference in Washington on the how to return to a stable dollar. He will outline a five-step program to return America to a gold-backed currency within five years.
VIDEO Ron Paul Knocks Hannity Out Cold After Fox Debate + best of Paul in the debate.
I stumbled across this video from 2007 without knowing about the Ron Paul mention. Basically, in online multiplayer games, there are players known as "griefers." Griefers get bored with how the game is supposed to be played, so they change their objective to trying to annoy all the other players.
If you skip to about 6 minutes into the video, a player figured out how to block all the other players in the starting area. He then makes them pledge to vote for Ron Paul, state they support the gold standard, or answer a random trivia question before they can leave the room.
Thanks to RonPaul2008dotcom and, of course Ron Paul.
This is the Meat and Potatoes of Ron Paul. Sitting in the top chair as committee Chair Man Ron & the Gang gets to talk on and on and on uninterrupted about the number one topic...... Funny Money and how to make it sound.
Great line up of people he has on the panel this is ground breaking fiat money busting video! Damn the Federal Reserve is getting hit hard from within! For economists amongst us, this is like gulping honey.
Additional info about the video:
I am reading Rothbard's book on "What has Government done to our Money" and I have a question regarding section IV on The Monetary Breakdown of the West. In phase III of this section Rothbard talks about the Gold Exchange Standard in Britain and the US. Can someone help me understand why Britain had to deflate their money supple to get back to a gold standard after world war I? I'm not sure I understand this section. Thanks.
Check out this editorial and watch the CNBC video about the gold standard.
"People are rapidly getting ahead of the government on this. We have this sense not only from our own interviews but from the astonishing poll rankings of, say, Congressman Ron Paul, whose entire career has been centered on a campaign for sound money."
I know I am going to ruffle some feathers here, and I am sorry if this post upsets you. I thought I would share my thoughts on why the wars are necessary economically even if we accept their is no strategic or material benefit.
This past Wednesday night on the O'Reilly Factor, Bill brought on Dick Morris, former political strategist to the Clinton Administration and frequent Fox News guest, for a discussion of Ron Paul and his bid for the presidency. Bill and Dick took turns dismissing the candidate, and Dick revealed his stunning ignorance of economics when the subject of the gold standard arises.
As many of you know, I'm attempting to put together a way for people who don't know all of the 'technical terms' that RP uses in his campaign, to understand them easier, and understand his platform on a layman's terms level. I'm doing this over at www.AboutRonPaul.info
The site has had a lot of hits since I launched it a few days ago, so the interest is obviously there.
I think the title pretty much explains it. He's giving a "worse case scenario" of a Ron Paul presidency. Can we blow up his comments section and correct the misinformation he's spreading? Here's the link to the article: http://www.salon.com/news/ron_paul/index.html?story=/politic...
I'm not familiar with fair use laws otherwise I would've posted an excerpt.
Libya was attempting to take Africa and the Middle East to the Gold Standard - Oil transactions in DinarSubmitted by kentrailer on Wed, 08/24/2011 - 19:24
The reason that NATO invaded (besides the huge amounts of sweet crude under their soil) was the attempt by Gaddafi to start a gold-standard currency called the Dinar.
This would have stabilized the intentionally destabilized Africa, and would have made Libyans wealthier per capita than residents in the US and UK (and most of the developed world).
This short video covers it:
