gary north bats for banksterism? you must be out of your mind.a govt gold standard is a minarchist position.it is not a free market idea.what is so difficult to understand about it?
Nope. After I learned about his history with y2k he lost all credibility with me. I wish he would just disappear into the shadows - he is no good.
I actually gained more respect for Gary after reading his articles about how wrong and sorry he was for the Y2K thing. It takes a big man to admit he was wrong.
As for a free market gold standard, he even admits that one has never existed, and that the closest thing that ever came to it was for a few years in the then relatively sparsely populated California during the Gold Rush.
My article on him being a spokesperson for a major Federal Reserve smokescreen was him taking exception with Ellen Brown calling the Fed private. While it has public aspects, I don't think it's inaccurate to call it private, when it's 100% privately owned.

I believed that Y2K would create havoc. It still might, depending on how many bugs are still in the systems, but I will not here appeal to the ‘still might’ argument. So, let me say without hesitation that my predictions did not come true. The events did not take place. ... So, at this point in the aftermath of the rollover, I look foolish. I was prepared for this. I thought it was better to risk my reputation or credibility in a life-saving effort than to tell people, ‘yes, Y2K will cause problems,’ and then refuse to define what degree of problems and what to prepare for.”
