Alasdair Macleod: Turk's 'Money and Liberty' explains what the former really is
1:15p ET Thursday, December 2, 2021
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
GoldMoney research director Alasdair Macleod today reviews the new book by his colleague James Turk, "Money and Liberty -- In the Pursuit of Happiness and the Theory of Natural Money":
Macleod writes: "This book is aimed at investors to explain the essential nature of money, pointing out that if the monetary worst comes to the monetary worst, physical gold will be spent, not sold for profit. That gold is now $1,800 is not a measure of investment success -- more a measure of the loss of purchasing power suffered by unbacked state currencies."
Macleod's review is headlined "James Turk's New Book on Money" and it's posted at GoldMoney here:
