Lewis E. Lehrman, President Ronald Reagan’s gold commissioner and co‐​signer of the iconic commission minority report, The Case for Gold, will make a rare Washington, D.C., public appearance to debut his latest work, Money, Gold, and History. In his new book, Lehrman, founder and chairman of the Lehrman Institute, compiles many of his key writings from almost 40 years of publications and complements them with new and important essays on the classical gold standard. Among the works included are his testimonies at the request of former representative Ron Paul before the House Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy, his address before the Parliament of France, and many essays in leading publications, including the Wall Street Journal, the American Spectator, and the Weekly Standard. Lehrman, a student of iconic French economist Jacques Rueff, and author of the critically acclaimed book The True Gold Standard, is a preeminent advocate of restoring a modern classical gold standard.

Featuring Lewis E. Lehrman, Author, Money, Gold, and History, Founder and Chairman, Lehrman Institute; and Addison Wiggin, Executive Publisher, Agora Financial, LLC; moderated by Mark Calabria, Director of Financial Regulation Studies, Cato Institute.
