The Case for Gold: A Minority Report of the U.S. Gold Commission By Rep. Ron Paul with Foreward by Lewis Lehrman.Originally commissioned by the U.S. Gold Commission and subsequently issued in 1982 as a minority report of the Commission, The Case for Gold is the first official U.S. government investigation into the feasibility of a gold standard in more than 100 years. After nearly 30 years, its history, and reform plan remains the most compelling ever printed. Congressman Ron Paul, one of the prime movers in the creation of the U.S. Gold Commission, writes in his foreword, “more and more people are asking if a gold standard will end the financial crisis in which we find ourselves. The question is not so much if it will help or if we will resort to gold, but when. All great inflations end with the acceptance of real money."
