I just saw an informative and inspiring documentary about monetary reform called 'The Secret of Oz'. I'm sure many people have seen it or heard of it before. The guy who made it, Bill Still, also made 'The Money Masters'. Both films are available on YouTube.
This blog, of course, advocates investing in gold and silver (among other things), but Bill Still makes the argument that we should not have a gold standard - rather we should have our money created and issued by the government, not borrowed from international bankers. Instead of being comprised of debt, it would be backed by the good faith and credit of the state.
I've become convinced he is right, and the litany of historical luminaries (Jefferson, Lincoln, Jackson) who have argued for this monetary system makes it extremely compelling.
