"An almost hysterical antagonism toward the gold standard is one issue which unites statists of all persuasions. They seem to sense -- perhaps more clearly and subtly than many consistent defenders of laissez-faire -- that gold and economic freedom are inseparable, that the gold standard is an instrument of laissez-faire and that each implies and requires the other."
(1926- ) Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors (1987-2006)
"Gold and Economic Freedom", 1966
