$Gold$ and Paper Money, plus Bernanke

I’ve been following the rapid ascent of the value of gold, and wondering why I remember this as being important, regarding inflation and so on…Economic Dreams/Nightmares believe it’s due to flagging confidence in paper money (72-years since the demonitisation of gold?!?)

The Wall Street Journal (subscribers only) has come to the same conclusion I did about Ben Bernake, prospective replacement for Alan Greenspan – he’s been very influenced by his academic research into the Great Depression.

Lastly, a whole bunch of economics related graphs from various blogs via Economist’s View.
