American Principles Project - Financial Times on Gold Plank in the GOP Platform

Dear Monetary Policy Observer,

The Financial Times just published a piece on how the gold standard has returned to “mainstream” political thought for the first time since the 1980s in the form a plank included in the proposed GOP 2012 draft platform.  The article goes over the efforts of monetary policy reform advocates to use a gold commission to highlight monetary reform, and the benefits of this process which are, observed Rep. Marcia Blackburn, the co-chair of the platform committee, “things that Republicans agree on.” 


The article also features APP's chairman, Sean Fieler, who reflects on the implications of a new gold commission. Here is a link to CNBC’s reprint of the article:
