Why mention what Keynes (a liberal economist) thinks about the Gold Standard while leaving out what much more reputable economists, like Hayek, have said?
See above, mostly. I think having only Keynes in makes this article basically a rehash of liberal talking point. We should remove him at the very least until we can add more reliable and conservative sources.
- Please feel free to insert Hayek's view if you have a reputable source. Keynes is mentioned because he is a undeniably influential economic theorist whether you like him or not. Tell me, do you have a significant reason to believe a gold standard combined with a trade surplus does not lead to deflation? It's not wrong, or even liberal just because Keynes said it. He just had an alarmingly high view of govt. spending. --Ben Talk 18:31, 22 May 2010 (EDT)
