I'm really not familiar with economics, it's one of my biggest blind spots I think. I have a question, I'm reading through Tragedy and Hope and according to Quigley, the international bankers were highly in favor of a gold standard for currency. I am pretty sure that at leas Ludwig von Mises advocated that, and I'm not sure becuase I haven't read the books, but it seems like Anthony C Sutton might have written books advocating the gold standard.
Am I wrong about these things? Has something changed in the banking/international banking industry. I will continue to read on and see if it is mentioned in Tragedy and Hope, but since this book is huge and the amount of information available out there is endless, and because I have a restless curiousity, I was wondering if anyone could give me some info on this.
