Charles DeGaulle’s ‘Criterion’ speech

Image of French president Charles DeGaulle, black and whiteGiven the increasing frequency and severity of international currency imbroglios and one emerging nation-state after another falling into monetary disrepair, it is not difficult to visualize more and more of these states looking to gold as a matter of national defense. One recalls Charles DeGaulle’s famous criterion speech on gold in this context. Though such a holding would not cure internal problems derived from excessive debt and the debasement of their own currencies, it would offer something of a shield for all nation-states against the devaluation/revaluation policies of other nation-states, just as it does for private investors who take the same course of action.
