Public Interest Institute to host “Fix the Dollar” presentation

Public Interest Institute will be hosting a presentation, “Fix the Dollar,” a project of American Principles in Action. The Henry County presentation will be Tuesday, February 10 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. at the Iowa Wesleyan College Library International Room.

American Principles in Action states, “Our mission is to defend the liberty of the individual, which can only be protected when the wages, quality of life, and savings earned through the fruits of one’s labor are preserved by the maintenance of sound currency.”

“If America had stayed with the gold standard, the Bank of England calculates, your real income would be 50% higher. That would solve a lot of problems. Moreover, there are solid reasons to believe that America can make up for lost time and create the kind of sizzling economic growth that would raise wages across-the-board, making up in a decade what ground was lost over the last 40 years.”

“By restoring the classical gold standard, and if possible changing a few laws so as to permit competing currencies, America can create a climate of equitable prosperity that will generate tens of millions of good new jobs, end wage stagnation, restore a climate of opportunity wherein everyone – blue or white collar, of every age, race, and creed – can climb the ladder to affluence, balance the federal budget via economic growth, provide the resources to improve the natural environment, and fix our decaying national infrastructure.”

Please join Public Interest Institute on Tuesday, February 10 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. at the IWC Library International Room to hear this interesting and informative presentation.
