In the XIX century the Bank of England instituted a new policy, heralded the beginning of the era of the gold standard, monetary system in which gold is recognized universal equivalent and the basis of monetary circulation. Inevitable economic crises, high volatility of currency markets, defaults, a growing virtualization of money and assets return in the modern world scientists and politicians to discuss "hard money". A collection of "Gold standard" has collected the work of famous economists, dedicated to the almost mystical power of metal "needs no safeguards."
