I'm still reading-up on the Gold Standard. I finished Steve Forbes' latest book today: Money. I would not recommend it.
Far too optimistic, and quite a bit unrealistic. Also, horribly organized. You won't get to his definition of a Gold Standard until page 148. And you will see exactly two lines of criticism of Obama.
I'll be starting another book today or tomorrow that should give me the information I'm still missing: how to start a gold standard. Hopefully it'll also address: how to keep a gold standard.
I'll share my report with you once I am better informed.
