We just wrapped up our first Jackson Hole Monetary Policy Summit, taking place in beautiful Jackson Hole, Wyoming opposite the Federal Reserve's annual symposium, and by all accounts our event was a huge success.
We heard from dozens of speakers from around the world about the flaws in the Federal Reserve's aimless discretionary monetary policy, the importance of interest rates being set by the market and not central planners, the need for a Centennial Monetary Commission to pass Congress, and why a return to the Gold Standard would be our best course of action.
The media and those on social media took notice. #JacksonHoleSummit was a top trending topic on Twitter throughout the day on Friday and more than 40 news outlets in print and online covered the event.
