The role of gold in the monetary system: Special overseas guest –

Robert Zoellick, president of the World Bank, wrote this week that a new international monetary system should  “consider employing gold as an international reference point of market expectations about inflation, deflation and future currency values.”  And yet many, including Paul Krugman, still see gold as a barbarous relic that has no place in a modern society.

This coming Tuesday, the 16th of November at 7pm, the University Economics Group is pleased to present a seminar by Professor Antal Fekete, a proponent of the gold standard and critic of the current monetary system. With talk of currency wars and continued financial instability dominating the headlines, there has never been a more important time to examine the foundations of the current monetary system. This is a unique opportunity to hear an alternative view about what makes money ‘sound’ and ‘unsound’, as well as the historical and possible future role of gold in the monetary system.

Born in Hungary, Professor Fekete is a retired Professor of Mathematics and Statistics from the Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada who now devotes his time to writing and lecturing on fiscal and monetary reform with special regard to the role of gold and silver in the monetary system. He has taught at universities around the world including Columbia and Princeton.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear Professor Fekete speak about this important topic during his brief visit to New Zealand. Don’t forget to invite your friends.
