John D. Mueller has been appointed as an advisor for TheGoldStandardNow.org, a project of The Lehrman Institute. Institute founder and chairman Lewis E. Lehrman said: “John Mueller is one of the most innovative economists and economic historians in America today. His new book, ‘Redeeming Economics,’ is peerless. He is an expert on the gold standard.”
TheGoldStandardNow.org is a website that provides information about the classical gold standard. The site provides key writings, historical information, breaking news, featured articles from the world media and frequently updated original content.
John D. Mueller is Director of the Economics and Ethics Program at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. Mueller is also president of LBMC LLC, a firm in Washington, D.C., specializing in economic and financial-market forecasting and economic policy analysis. He is author of Redeeming Economics: Rediscovering the Missing Element (ISI Books, 2010). Besides investment managers, Mr. Mueller has advised many American and foreign economic policymakers on monetary policy and exchange rates, policies for reducing unemployment, and income-tax, welfare and Social Security reform.
In a recent blog post on TheGoldStandardNow.org Mueller stated “Since the dollar standard isn’t sustainable and the SDR (Special Drawing Rights) isn’t viable, the next successful U.S. president will undertake the remaining practical alternative: restoring the gold standard without reserve currencies”.
Other advisors to TheGoldStandardNow.org are James Grant, author of multiple books on finance and financial history including his latest, Mr. Market Miscalculates (Axios Press, 2008); Ralph J. Benko, author of many articles on the gold standard, most recently at The Washington Examiner, Forbes.com, CNBC.org and Foxnews.com; and Brian Domitrovic, author of Econoclasts: the Rebels Who Sparked the Supply-Side Revolution and Restored American Prosperity and Forbes.com columnist.
