Gold: The Monetary Polaris | [Nathan K. Lewis]

Gold: The Monetary Polaris

In this sequel to Gold: The Once and Future Money, Lewis describes in greater depth how actual gold standard systems are created, and how they have been used through history. The pre-1913 world gold standard system was perhaps the greatest monetary system the world has ever seen. The greatest champion of the gold standard system of the 19th century, Britain, was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and eventually presided over the largest empire the world had ever seen.
