Thirty-five years ago, Ron Paul and Lewis Lehrman published The Case for Gold, their minority report from Reagan's gold commission. Today, Jim Rickards has written The New Case for Gold, an uncompromising call for using gold as money and reestablishing a gold standard for central banks.

In this wide-ranging interview, Jeff Deist and Jim Rickards discuss gold in the context of current geopolitics and enduring myths about monetary growth. While the "anti-gold reflex" is strong among older generation monetary economists in the west, a new gold-friendly order is emerging in Asia. Jeff and Jim even discuss whether Hillary will be indicted, leading to a Joe Biden/Elizabeth Warren ticket. This is a fascinating interview that you won't want to miss.
