Advantages & Disadvantages of the Gold Standard
The gold standard is the controversial practice of backing a national currency with the value of gold. Currency on the gold standard could be redeemed for an equal amount of gold at any time since the currency is essentially a promissory note for the precious metal. Advocates of the gold standard say it gives real value to currency instead of the imaginary value of currency today. Detractors say the gold standard is too rigid and restricts economic policy in times of financial turmoil.
