George Selgin joins us for a discussion about the gold standard. How did America get off the gold standard, and is there any chance of the country returning to it? Would it be a good idea to revive the standard? Why gold in particular and not any other commodity? Is gold less valuable as money than in other applications, like electronics manufacturing? Show Notes and Further Reading Trevor asks whether people in Venezuela have started switching to Bitcoin, since Venezuela’s own currency is falling apart. According to this article from Jim Epstein in next month’s issue of Reason, that’s exactly what they’re doing. https://reason.com/archives/2016/11/28/the-secret-dangerous-world-of Download the .mp3 of this episode: http://bit.ly/2hTvnup Subscribe through iTunes: https://bitly.com/18wswtX Subscribe through Google Play Music: http://bit.ly/1VLM4sh Free Thoughts RSS feed: http://bit.ly/1q2vZQP

China has supplanted India as the number-one consumer of the world's gold, according to new numbers from the World Gold Council, even as the global supply of gold fell last year. Erin Ade reports. Then, Erin sits down with George Selgin of the University of Georgia and the Cato Institute to discuss whether the inflexibility of the gold standard contributed to debt-deflation in the 1930's. The famous Bretton Woods conference still has a huge impact on our global financial system, and has become shorthand for international monetary cooperation. Dr. Benn Steil, Director of International Economics at the Council on Foreign Relations, does some myth-busting on the meeting. Comedian and author Lee Camp makes his debut on the "Big Deal" to talk about Chevron's customer relations department, and whether free pizza could ever be a bad thing.

Erin welcomes The Keiser Report's Max Keiser talks about Bitcoin, Mt. Gox, and a second generation crypto-currency alternative, his very own Maxcoin! Although Mt. Gox is facing trouble, Keiser doesn't believe that Bitcoin is going to lose its long term value, and he further explains why he thinks crypto-currencies have more intrinsic value than fiat currency. Watch to see what he thinks of the US dollar, the British pound, and the effect crypto-currencies have on the banking world. After the break, Erin sits down with macroeconomics expert and co-founder of the Center for Economic and Policy Research Dean Baker on his thoughts on why growth in the US has slowed down. Erin asks Baker's views on US wage growth, consumption expenditures, and how to get back to full employment. He discusses inadequate aggregate demand and secular stagnation and gives some possibilities on how to get out of it. For the Big Deal today, Erin talks to Edward Harrison about the housing market. January numbers show a five and a half year high, but on the other hand, mortgage applications fell to its lowest level in nearly 2 decades. What's going on? Ed explains the role of investors had in the housing market recovery and discusses how the housing market of Las Vegas is a harbinger of what's to come.

A gold standard Three types may be distinguished.[ In the gold specie standard the monetary unit is associated with the value of circulating gold coins or the monetary unit has the value of a certain circulating gold coin, but other coins may be made of less valuable metal. The gold exchange standard usually does not involve the circulation of gold coins. The main feature of the gold exchange standard is that the government guarantees a fixed exchange rate to the currency of another country that uses a gold standard (specie or bullion), regardless of what type of notes or coins are used as a means of exchange. This creates a gold standard, where the value of the means of exchange has a fixed external value in terms of gold that is independent of the inherent value of the means of exchange itself. Finally, the gold bullion standard is a system in which gold coins do not circulate, but the authorities agree to sell gold bullion on demand at a fixed price in exchange for currency.

The operators of two exchanges for the virtual currency Bitcoin have been arrested in the US. The Department of Justice said Robert Faiella, known as BTCKing, and Charlie Shrem from BitInstant.com have both been charged with money laundering. The authorities said the pair were engaged in a scheme to sell more than $1m (£603,000) in bitcoins to users of online drug marketplace the Silk Road. The site was shut down last year and its alleged owner was arrested. Mr Shrem, 24, was arrested on Sunday at New York's JFK airport. He was expected to appear in court on Monday, prosecutors said. Mr Faiella, 52, was arrested on Monday at his home in Cape Coral, Florida. Bitcoin exchanges are services that allow users to trade bitcoins for traditional currencies. Mr Shrem is accused of allowing Mr Faiella to use BitInstant to purchase large quantities of bitcoins to sell on to Silk Road users who wanted to anonymously buy drugs. The authorities said Mr Shrem was aware that the bitcoins were being used for such purchases, and therefore he was in violation of the Bank Secrecy Act. The Act requires financial institutions in the US to alert authorities to any suspicious activity that may suggest money laundering is taking place. Emily Spaven, managing editor of news site Coindesk, told the BBC: "Since the closure of Silk Road and arrest of alleged owner Ross Ulbricht, we always knew more arrests would follow. "It is unfortunate Silk Road continues to make the headlines in association with Bitcoin - this is the dark side of Bitcoin, which the vast majority of digital currency users have no association with." 'Feigning ignorance' Following the arrests, James Hunt, from the US Drug Enforcement Agency, said in a statement: "Hiding behind their computers, both defendants are charged with knowingly contributing to and facilitating anonymous drug sales, earning substantial profits along the way "Drug law enforcement's job is to investigate and identify those who abet the illicit drug trade at all levels of production and distribution, including those lining their own pockets by feigning ignorance of any wrong doing and turning a blind eye." Mr Shrem is a founding member and the current vice chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation, a trade group set up to promote Bitcoin as an alternative currency. Last year, Mr Shrem set up a bar in New York that accepted bitcoins. BitInstant is one of the largest Bitcoin exchanges on the internet. At the time of publication, the service was inaccessible. BitInstant's investors include Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss - the twins who previously sued Mark Zuckerberg claiming he had stolen their idea for Facebook.
