Alan Greenspan Quote

“An almost hysterical antagonism toward the gold standard is one issue which unites statists of all persuasions. They seem to sense -- perhaps more clearly and subtly than many consistent defenders of laissez-faire -- that gold and economic freedom are inseparable, that the gold standard is an instrument of laissez-faire and that each implies and requires the other.”

True statement from a hypocrite.

I guess Greenspan couldn't resist the temptation of all that power in his hands. They must have made him an offer he couldn't refuse.
