Only when the US is on the "gold standard" will the American Dream be restored. When the dollar is once again defined by gold, the quick credit and "no money down" attitude will be a thing of the past. The word, credit, will once again be a word without "multiple meanings". The ability of government to create "money" will be curtailed, and as long as gold continues to be a rare commodity, the finances of the US, and ultimately the world, will stabilize.
