Should the U.S. Return to the Gold Standard

Summary:
Krystina Alarcon of Fox News interviewed me this morning about why the exchange rate of the dollar and the price of gold tend to move in opposite directions. I think she did a nice job of splicing together my answers to various questions. I loved the way she started it. I referred to the work of Lawrence H. White, George Selgin, and Christy Romer, but in her editing she didn’t use those parts. It’s just under 3 minutes long.
