Ralph Benko: Gold standard deserves more credit than it gets from modernists


10:32p ET Friday, November 13, 2015

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

With Republican presidential aspirants being ridiculed by supposedly enlightened modernists for advocating or expressing sympathy for a gold standard, Ralph Benko of the American Principles Project writes that it had more virtues and success than it's being given credit for. Of course compared to the comprehensive corruption of what Benko calls the current "fiduciary management system" of currencies, oxen and seashells are starting to look better too. Benko's commentary is headlined "Cruz, Paul, Carson, Huckabee: WSJ's Greg Ip on 'What Republicans Get Wrong About Gold'" and it's posted at the American Principles Project's The Pulse 2016 Internet site here:
