The attempts to create a double standard of gold and silver failed lamentably. It was this failure that generated the gold standard — a manifestation of a crushing defeat of the governments and their cherished doctrines, writes Ludwig von Mises (1881–1973).

This audio Mises Daily is narrated by Jeff Riggenbach.
