    Glad to see I'm not the only one who knows this. They literally give us paper that they can inflate and deflate at will. Its not even a bank note promising a certain amount of gold its not backed by anything of value, literally its just paper. Also on a side note, anything purchased with a federal reserve note is owned by the federal reserve, another thing to note is using gold as a currency or medium of exchange is illegal. So what does anyone really own? That's right, nothing...

    I hope your wrong (and possibly so do you hehe). The Federal Reserve helps create the very bubbles that it steps in to act like they are going to fix. Housing, .com and now with Bonds and their QE stoppage. They do create money and inflate the system, while they in fact keep and control the real money= -G-O-L-D. The Federal Reserve has "ties" to our Govt., but at the end of the day they are still private banks that operate for profit. With the cycle/system as it is, they control the country.

    There is only one programming rule needed in a bank application, to create monthly enough money for every person to be alife (what most will call 'a basic income'). Costs nothing. You can program that on every transaction a thousanth of the amount dissolves by itself, so the money won't pile up. It's the only thing we need to do. Just one programming rule..... NOT having this programming rule is having all the shit instead. smoothparadigmshift(dot)net (the site is in Dutch).

    The difference is, anyone can "make" salt but not gold. Therefore gold is more rare and worth more. Whether it circulates or not it's value is inherent and will always retain it's value even when paper money has none. Hopefully we never have to use gold as currency again due to the trouble it presents but it's always a worthy investment especially in times of financial turmoil.

    The Federal Reserve was built on lies almost a century ago by greedy bankers trying to make themselves richer. Why does the Fed and Treasury stockpile gold if it's so worthless? Because they know that paper money can get to the point that it's not worth the paper it's printed on. If things don't change, that time is coming soon.

    salt, tobacco, tea, wampum and lots of other commodities have been used as money, long ago

    gold, like salt is an outmoded form of money

    which is why it's not used for day to day purchases in grocery stores and other retail stores

    for the U.S. obviously paul forgot about the switch we made a long time ago off of gold. we're bound to the world markets. trading is what holds us up. and if we're out traded, which hasnt happened yet but its starting to get close, our dollars power will decrease dramaticly. the bailouts were to keep the trading going and the loans to keep our trading higher (i am referring to the loans made to other countries). i will give ron paul one point for showing how vulnerable we are and ben knows it!

    [Sounds nice], but when international struggles emerge, the gold standard can become a window for other nations to sabotage your currency. If there is trade between currencies, and one is gold backed while the other is not, the non-gold-backed currency nation can take advantage of lags in exchange rates to change currencies and redeem gold, thereby quickly expanding that 10:1 ratio and effectively choking off monetary circulation. This happened in Europe in between the WW1 & 2.

    I'm going to copy and paste a response I gave to 'rongeotom6' on this page. It deals with the area where I think the gold-standard breaks down most significantly. I also am very much sympatico with the concern over retention of value in a currency, I just don't think that gold accomplishes this without introducing more grave concequences.

    At some level I am simpatico but we don't live in self-sufficient silos so we need a form of currency that tends to retain it's value and doesn't melt in the rain. I was thinking about the trout standard. What could possibly go wrong with that?

    Hey guy, it was white people that precluded Ron Paul's attempt at defeating Obama. He didn't get the nomination, remember? All those black people in the republican party chose Romney over Paul? Blaming black people for Obama is a cop-out.

    Just that this is the 21st century and the notion of salt as currency, while historically accurate, sounds as silly to me as trying to refute the "theory" that the world is spherical.
