Given this viewpoint, one might suggest that even with a gold standard without a central bank, an increase in the supply of gold money will lead to the...

Is Central Banks’ License to Print Money About to Expire?

One of the biggest reasons for people deciding to buy gold bars or to own silver coins is because of the folly of central banks and government. It seems bizarre to most people that we are all aware that money doesn’t grow on trees and yet those responsible for financial stability have forgotten this basic life-lesson.

Early this month, Congressman Alex Mooney of West Virginia introduced the Gold Standard Restoration Act (H.R. 9157).

Sound money, whether it’s gold or silver or paper that is “backed” by one or both metals, may not acquire a sizable constituency...
