The True Gold Standard (Second Edition)
Monetary Reform is in-style this summer as gold fashion has reemerged as a popular trend.
In the late 1960’s, the Peace Movement brought tie- dye tee shirts, flower power prints, and peace signs up to the forefront of American fashion. In 2012, it is possible that fashion has once again reflected political trends with the emergence of Gold summer clothing lines. Fabsugar.com has recently covered this summer’s rise in gold fashion, and has encouraged readers to participate in the “gold rush” for summer clothing. With the U.S. debt currently pegged at around $15 trillion, now is certainly an appropriate time to make gold this summer’s biggest trend.
