På engelska förstås och på Justin Raimondos blogg:
"Ron Paul has some very sensible policies that would appeal to many people but he also has a few insane ones. The craziest one is his desire to go back on the gold standard.
He is right to say the FED - 12 privately owned banks belonging to the bankers - should be closed down. He is right to say that the US Dollar is a fiat currency backed by nothing just like all currencies. But this is most certainly not the answer.
Who would benefit from this? The bankers would because they have most of the known gold stocks and also control most of the production. Known gold stocks total about 2.5 trillion dollars of which the US government does not have a single ounce. The US GDP alone is nearly 11 trillion dollars. To want to back your own currency with something that you do not have any of is insane.
The money system needs to be totally reformed. It is a debt based system that just keeps creating more and more debt and the only way people already in debt can pay their debts back is if yet more debt is created.
The government should control the money supply not the bankers. And usury should be banned. If he starts to really address the money system then Paul will be worth considering."Kommentar: Ja jag har nog själv funderat lite i samma banor måste jag erkänna. Dvs just på det där med guldmyntfot och BNP och vem som har lagt vantarna på guldreserverna i världen.
Ron Paul citerar troligen från den Österrikiska ekonomiska skolans läroböcker. (austrian school of economics) Mises teorier är bara så gamla att de troligen inte kan tillämpas mera idag på denhär punkten. Link till Mises on Money av Gary North.
