Discussing whether it is time to get back to gold standard , with Jared Bernstein, CNBC contributor; and John Tamny, Real Clear Markets. "It was a monumental blunder, the biggest of modern times. leaving gold was a devaluation of the dollar and as history shows when money is devalued, investment becomes defensive. it flows into the hard assets of yesterday that already exist and away from the innovative ideas of tomorrow in assets that don't exist, leaving gold restrained, our economic evolution and it shows up in the numbers that you just cited. we've grown less quickly, unemployment's been higher. it's been a major disaster and it's time to turn back " says John Tamny
