John Tamny, Political Economy Editor at, calls George Gilder’s new monograph, The 21st Century Case For Gold, published by the American Principles Project, “an excellent and very important read.”  Tamny:

“Thank goodness for Steve Forbes” is a frequent refrain among the small number of economics writers who support the dollar’s revival as a stable measure of value. Respected by serious people on the left and right, and among the various “Schools” of economic thought, Forbes’s strong support for gold-defined money lends the movement an air of credibility that otherwise wouldn’t exist.

Add George Gilder to what is a short list of grand names lending support to good money.  Readers interested in what drives Gilder’s thinking on the matter can access his new book The 21st Century Case for Gold: A New Information Theory of Money here.  It’s an excellent and very important read.
