GOP Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has called for the creation of a Gold Commission “to look at the concept of how we get back to hard money.”

During a foreign policy forum sponsored by the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, Gingrich declared, “We need to get our house in order. And we need to vaccinate ourselves against foreign contagion.”

“Part of our approach ought to be to reestablish something Ronald Reagan did in 1981 and that it to have a Commission on Gold to look at the concept of how to get back to hard money,” he asserted.
