H.R.5404, a bill to define the dollar as a fixed weight of gold

H.R. 5404 is a bill introduced by Rep. Alex Mooney (R-WV2) that would bring the U.S. back to the gold standard once and for all. It would take effect exactly 30 months after the bill was passed, to allow an adjustment period in the American economy. Interestingly for a Republican-introduced bill, if the bill was enacted any time after July 2018, that 30-month window would come under the administration of the 2020 election.

Judy Shelton is Right About the Gold Standard

Economist Peter Schiff expected that gold will resume its role in the global monetary system, that is, the countries of the world will return to the gold standard, and this is not strange in light of the economic crisis the world is witnessing.
It is simply false to claim that the gold standard was a source of perpetual economic chaos, and that we are better off today without it. All things considered, the gold standard is "superior in some respects and no worse in others." Rather than a "barbarous relic," as John Maynard Keynes famously called it, the gold standard is an instrument for economic harmony and civilized commercial relations.

Basel III endgame strikes the Federal Reserve

U.S. Federal Reserve officials, led by Fed Vice Chair Michael Barr, are exploring changes to the 'Basel III endgame' overhaul for bank capital regulations.
This includes reconsidering operational risk calculations and potential offsets for mortgage servicing.
It marks a significant shift as the Fed acknowledges concerns from the banking industry about the policy's impact on lending.
Here is Michael Barr's statement:
'We want to make sure that the rule supports a vibrant economy that supports low - and moderate-income communities, that gets the calibration right upon things like mortgages.
So the public comment that we're getting on this is really critical for us getting it right. We take it very, very seriously.
That program was really designed in that emergency situation. It was designed for that emergency to say, we want to make sure that banks and creditors of banks and depositors banks understand that banks have the liquidity they need.'
