Median Weekly Earnings Vs. Gold

by Brad Parkes

I think finance people do not understand the monetary system including the experts. When Bretton Woods ended a new system started. A new system needs new models. I find it hard to believe that models created for a gold standard or gold exchange standard are used for a floating rate exchange system.
