Real Vision co-founder Grant Williams and a host of experts walk through the history of the gold standard and the potential for a return to gold-backed currencies. After its "temporary" suspension by President Nixon in 1971, many people thought gold as money would go away, but its value has endured. This video is excerpted from a piece published on Real Vision on January 26, 2018 entitled "Gold: The Story of Man's 6000 Year Obsession - Episode 1."
