Join me on WJBC today at 5:10 Central. http://ow.ly/58MY1. I will be talking about the gold standard and recent interest on the part of some Presidential candidates. Among other things, I will be discussing:
What is so special about gold?
- What exactly is the gold standard?
- Why is the gold standard attractive to some?
- Will a gold standard keep politicians from overspending?
- How would a gold standard affect your and my financial well-being?
- How likely is it that we will return to a gold standard?
- Are there other alternatives?
