The pro-gold-standard people are the ONLY ones who understand basic economics.

The gold standard people don't understand even simple economics.

So, if you had ALL the gold in the world, you could pay off HALF of the US national debt.

We are so f***ed.

This more or less explains why the gold standard is a good idea. Since there is a limited amount of gold in the world and it doesn't degrade when in its pure form, the value of gold will remain relatively constant. The reason gold's price compared to the dollar has gone up is because of the falling value of the american dollar. If you put the two graphs next to each other, you will see very similar lines. It is much more difficult to mine more gold than to print paper money out of thin air. Therefore the value of gold will remain steady. Under the gold standard you should be able to go to the bank to exchange your currencies for its value in gold or silver. Under the current fiat system your money has no value until you spend it. It does no good to save it. Also this is why consumerism has gone rampant.

"Are you still thinking that the world adapting to a gold standard is a good idea?"

It sure beats fiat.

Interesting! Bringing back the "gold standard" isn't possible, unless gold is worth a million $$ a gram!!

I prefer to use seashells and Tennessee Sutton moonshine as my monetary units. Take that Gold.
