Cruz Is Right About Gold

Ted Cruz grasped the nettle in the debate and explicitly upheld gold as the “ideal” monetary foundation. Perhaps he understands the scandal of money: that gold currency is now effectively illegal in the U.S.; that the murky $5.3 trillion a day churning of currencies now muddles rather than defines all value in the global economy.

The next step from the nettle is an actual program for the net, which should include digital currencies such as bitcoin as well as the cancellation of capital gains taxes on the alternatives to the dollar.

As Hayek wrote:

“The source of all monetary evil is the government monopoly on money.”
