World Bank chief surprises with gold standard idea
He isn't talking about gold and silver coins, but that would be the best change for our change!
Significant inflation and deflation are caused by political manipulations of the money supply, which also lead to the booms-and-busts of the business cycle. Return to the gold standard would be a return to 'honest money" and would end the government's ability to erode our savings through its hidden "tax."
Bringing it up as something to seriously consider is the first step.
Making it happen will require a clear and thorough debunking of Keynesian economics and the belief in central planning.
It's an up hill battle, but one we can not ignore.
