    You need to re-read it is mentioned about 2/3 through interview
    LB: I think for most people a return to the gold standard seems completely out of the question. Would you agree with that? And if so how do you think we restore trust and confidence to the world currency system?

    PC: I think it’s going to be very difficult. I agree that the gold standard looks pretty much out of the question, unless we do lurch into some sort of hyperinflationary episode, which is not impossible, never say never. But at the moment it doesn’t look likely because inflation is tending to fall rather than rise in much of the developed world.


  2. Useful information. I know what to do with my savings account now: buy property!
