As the call for sound money in America grows louder and louder, reports the keynote speaker at the Denver Gold Forum made a call for ‘honest money’ backed by gold. – Denver – Lipsky gave a keynote speech titled “Mainstreaming the Gold Standard” at the 2013 Denver Gold Forum. He called on the U.S. to return to some kind of gold standard, and urged those attending the Gold Forum not to be shy about entering the political fray.

In an interview ahead of his speech with Kitco News, Lipsky described the New York Sun as an online newspaper standing for limited government, free enterprise, strong foreign policy and “sound and honest money,” carrying more editorials on the gold standard than any other newspaper in the U.S. A book, “It Shines For All,” includes many of the editorials from the Sun for a gold standard and was distributed to those attending the speech.

“I tend to look at it through the prism of the United States Constitution and the founding fathers of the republic,” Lipsky told Kitco News. “I often talk about the fact that Constitution gave Congress the power to coin money and regulate the value thereof in the same sentence in which it also gives Congress the power to fix the standards of weights and measurements.”

Lipsky said the founders “hated” paper fiat money.
