Greenspan's Reply

Donald Luskin:

"There was a very special article [Greenspan] wrote in 1966 in The Objectivist Newsletter," [Ron Paul] told me, referring to "Gold and Economic Freedom," a powerful plea for the gold standard published by radical capitalist Ayn Rand, then a close friend of Greenspan's. "I have an original copy and Greenspan signed it for me. I asked him if he still believes it, and he said he 'wouldn't change a single word.' Maybe deep down inside he's having a few doubts."

This all reminds me of the time in one interview when Ron Paul said he thought Obama was 'principled', and I said "yep..".
