Vienna, AUSTRIA and Scottsdale, AZ USA (April 15, 2012)—The Gold Standard Institute is pleased to announce that Keith Weiner will be establishing The Gold Standard Institute USA to promote the gold standard in this large and important market. The Gold Standard Institute USA will work closely with The Gold Standard Institute in Vienna to further develop the high-quality journal The Gold Standard, a large international mailing list, and papers and quick-sheets explaining how a proper gold standard works. Further details will be announced soon.
A proper, unadulterated gold standard is not only necessary for the economy to coordinate the actions of millions of productive people, but it is the keystone. Today, people are suffering as the 40-year-old irredeemable paper money system is becoming unstable and approaches total collapse. The burden of debt is rising as the rate of interest falls, unemployment is rising, infrastructure is failing due to lack of capital to maintain it, and at the same time the productive class is being replaced by the speculator class and the government-crony class.
“I am excited to work with The Gold Standard Institute, which is the only organization that is defining and promoting a real gold standard. I think that there are millions of Americans who would be interested and it is now my job to bring them the knowledge and the tools to promote the gold standard in the US,” said Keith Weiner.
“We have been fortunate to have Keith Weiner as a friend and ally for several years, and we are very pleased that he has agreed to take up the task in the USA. Keith is a successful entrepreneur who understands both urgency and scalability, and the demands and work involved in promoting the gold standard,” said Philip Barton, founder and President of The Gold Standard Institute.
About The Gold Standard Institute
The Gold Standard Institute, founded in 2009, exists to disseminate the virtues of the gold standard widely and to establish gold as the basis of money. With the financial system heading towards collapse, and with gold forgotten and misunderstood, this is the most important mission in the world. The Institute publishes a monthly journal with gold-related news and articles about gold and money. The Institute is composed of people from all walks of life who cherish the ideals of liberty, prosperity and peace and who understand that sound money is a necessary component to achieve this.
