On Monday September 26th, leading experts, lawmakers and activists will gather in Salt Lake City to deliberate the future of monetary policy and sound money. Earlier this year Utah became the first state in more than a century to declare gold and silver coins as money, precipitating tremendous interest from monetary reformers and journalists alike. Now people interested in advancing the cause of sound money are coming in from across the country and the world for this consultation.
Summit speakers include Sean Fieler and Charles Kadlec of the advisory board to the Gold Standard Now. Each will deliver a presentation advocating for and articulating the workings of the gold standard. Additional speakers include Olivier Ledoit, the University of Zurich economist promoting a gold franc, and James Turk, head of the GoldMoney Foundation and one of the foremost experts on the use of gold as money. The economist Richard Ebeling will deliver a speech entitled, "Gold and Freedom" in the evening session.
