Dear Monetary Policy Observer,
Last week Lewis Lehrman, Advisor to the APP Gold is Money Project, spoke on Wednesday, July 18 at the Cato Institute about his new book, Money, Gold, and History, providing a comprehensive history of the gold standard and demonstrating the unparalleled rise in prices and income inequality since it was abandoned in 1971, hurting the middle class. The event was especially notable since it came on the heels of a statement by Ben Bernanke that the Federal Reserve has “Main Street” goals. If you missed it you can watch the entire lecture here: http://americanprinciplesproject.org/gold-standard/2013/lehrman-talks-bernanke-and-rising-prices-at-cato/
We hope you find this material of interest.
