MONEY: A real gold standard

Two Kinds of Gold Standards
by Gary North

*** begin quote ***

This is why the free market is the only reliable source for the re-establishment of a gold standard. Honest money begins with these steps: (1) the revocation of legal tender laws that require people to accept the State’s money; (2) the enforcement of contracts; (3) laws against fraud, which fractional reserve banking is. The free market can do the rest.

*** end quote ***

Clearly, we can NOT get the Gooferment back inside its Constitutional bounds while it has an unlimited line of credit.

The Gold Standard, a real one, not an ersatz Gooferment one, can restrict that Gooferment to only spend what it has or raises.

The debate over tariffs, taxes, and fees are a separate issue; once you close the “barn door”.
