Hugo Salinas Price: The gold standard is the generator and protector of jobs


10:40p ET Thursday, June 17, 2010

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

In his latest essay, Hugo Salinas Price, president of the Mexican Civic Association for Silver and a longtime GATA supporter, elaborates on a theme he has been pressing for many years: that a gold standard is vital for local production and that a world financial system in which one country alone issues the world reserve currency destroys and dislocates industry. Salinas Price's essay is the clearest and most important sort of macro-economics and implies the moral underpinnings of GATA's work. The essay is headlined "The Gold Standard: Generator and Protector of Jobs" and you can find it at the Mexican Civic Association for Silver's Internet site here:
