1) An international gold standard has both positive and negative attributes. Currencies that are backed by gold maintain very stable exchange rates over long periods of time. This encourages international trade and investments, which help the global economy grow. A gold standard also creates a situation in which any errors in exchange rates are automatically corrected by the movement of gold. In addition to these advantages, the gold standard is also a good defense against inflation. Backing currency with gold is a great idea but a true gold standard is not plausible, the amount of gold being minted today is not enough to keep back our currency 100%. It would lead to insufficient international monetary reserves, which would hurt world trade and investment, and even cause global deflation. Also, the rules of the gold standard can not be strictly enforced with can cause problems.
