The mining companies are benefiting because the gold hamsters are distorting the market, under normal conditions half of the mining activities would be uneconomical.
If there is a gold standard the governments would have to buy whatever they had to have a growing economy at whatever price. And that is how we will substitute the banksters for diggers. Or the old poor church thing: on Saint Thomas day we take the cloth of Saint Jerome so Saint Tom is not naked.
That is not a solution, that is yesterday's error.
