Peter Schiff: The Return of the Gold Standard

In my latest book, The Real Crash: America’s Coming Bankruptcy – How to Save Yourself and Your Country, I devote a full chapter to the merits of the historical gold standard and reasons to reinstate it.

A Strategic Shift The return to gold is unmistakably the product of a strategic, not merely a tactical, shift in global central […]
