News Date: May 23, 2020

Judy Shelton, President Trump's nominee for the Federal Reserve board of governors, has advocated for getting back to a gold standard, possibly "in a very cryptocurrency way." In an interview, Judy Shelton told reporters:
"I don't see it so much as returning [to the gold standard], more like 'back to the future.' I think that what a gold standard stands for is monetary discipline for its own sake. Money is supposed to be a unit of account, a reliable measure and a dependable store of value. It really shouldn't be subject to who's the chairman of the Federal Reserve."

A Monetary System as Good as Gold

The gold standard provides a better anchor for inflation expectations without an obvious cost in terms of lower output or higher unemployment.
The gold standard isn't perfect. No system is. But it has many virtues. A strong case can be made that it's the best of all feasible institutional alternatives. Lawrence White, puts it: The gold standard is still the gold standard among monetary systems.

The two US Constitutions

There are two Constitutions in the United States. The first penned by the leaders of the newly independent states of the United States in 1776. On July 4, 1776, the people claimed their independence from Britain and Democracy was born. And for 95 years the United States people were free and independent. That freedom ended in 1871 when the original "Constitution for the united states for America" was changed to the "THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA".

BRICS Alternatives to SWIFT

BRICS is the acronym denoting the emerging national economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.
It is a growing eastern world alliance led by China.
In another effort to reduce their dependence on the US dollar, BRICS members have been building their own global payment infrastructures for international transactions that are independent of the US dollar and can serve as alternatives to SWIFT, the leading messaging network for financial transactions worldwide.
This allows BRICS members, especially those who are often subjects of US sanctions, to create their own rules for international banking and settlement. Moreover, by extending alternative financial infrastructure to other countries and regions, BRICS can create greater buy-in for their own system and increase their financial and political influence through this alternative system.
Some BRICS members have independently developed their own cross-border payment mechanisms in recent years.
Both Russia and China have launched their national alternatives to the SWIFT global banking network and introduced their systems to broader global markets. Source: www.cambridge.org
