Return to "Gold standard" page.

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)
