As we talked about in another thread, being tied to a Gold Standard meant that the US and several other nations suffered far worse during the great depression. Also, it is IMPOSSIBLE to go back to a gold standard now, so fantasizing about it is nothing more than a waste of time.

Sound money.

Return Value to Our Money. Legalize gold and silver as a competing currency.

* Level the long-term boom and bust business cycle by passing H.R. 4683, which would repeal provisions of the federal criminal code relating to issuing coins of gold, silver, or other metal for use as current money and making or possessing likenesses of such coins.

Milton Friedman: The Purpose of the Federal Reserve
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9V5OP-VmXgE

Milton Friedman explains role of gold in Great Depression.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7pnjzCuSv8

However - http://www.fff.org/freedom/0399b.asp

But by the mid 1980s, Friedman had second thoughts about whether government could be trusted ever to follow the necessary restraint to provide this supposedly superior paper money system. He began to regularly quote a sentence from Irving Fisher's 1911 book, The Purchasing Power of Money : "Irredeemable paper money has almost invariably proved a curse to the country employing it."

"Let me emphasize that this note is not a plea for a return to a gold standard.... I regard a return to a gold standard as neither desirable nor feasible — with the one exception that it might become feasible if the doomsday predictions of hyperinflation under our present system should prove correct."

See this link doesn't talk about what happened in the 80's and what he said - http://www.federalreserve.gov/boardd...22/default.htm

If you view the video link in the second link here, it is difficult to hear what he is saying. This first link I have posted gives more details from the woman who is speaking iwth Ron Paul in the clip:
