DC Roundtable: The Gold Standard
6:30 pm
You’re Invited to a Roundtable on the Gold Standard Is There Fiat Money At The End of the Rainbow? Monetary policy in the United States is a complex subject at the best of times. In our current economic climate, even facts that should be obvious, like whether inflation is at an all time low or an all time high, are fiercely disputed. Decisions made by Ben Bernanke and the rest of the Federal Reserve board are more important than many of those made by elected officials. Perhaps instead of fighting over the merits of the most recent round of quantitative easing, it would be best for the country to take the issue out of the hands of the government and return to the gold standard. Join us to discuss whether a return to hard money would make us freer and help or hinder our economy. Featuring: Steve Davis of SpaceX/George Mason Economics Rich Danker of Gold Standard 2012 Daniel Hanson of the American Enterprise Institute David Barnes, Moderator Thursday, March 15, 2012 6:30 pm Drinks & Appetizers, 7:00 pm Program The Fund for American Studies 1706 New Hampshire Ave NW Washington, DC $5 for General Public, Free for Members – Join Now
