DEBATE: Why America Should Adopt a Gold Standard

Richard Ebeling emails:
Dear Bob,

On March 29th, I participated in a debate on "Whether America Should Adopt the Gold Standard," which was held at Northwood University in Midland, Michigan, and was co-sponsored by the Atlas Economic Research Foundation and the Forum for Citizenship and Enterprise.

Spoke on behalf of the "affirmative" position, of course. I have posted my talk on Northwood University's blog, "In Defense of Capitalism & Human Progress" under the title, "The Gold Standard and Monetary Freedom."

I thought that you and some of your readers might, perhaps, find it of some interest.

It may be accessed here.
