Does the U.S. need a strong dollar policy?

The Kaufman Center played host to a debate on monetary policy Wednesday night. Officially the resolution under consideration was America Doesn’t Need a Strong Dollar Policy although what it really ended up being about was the wisdom of the gold standard.

The sponsor of Wednesday night’s debate was an outfit called Open to Debate formerly known as Intelligence Squared U.S., which turns these things into podcasts, and public radio and television broadcasts.
