29. Take a minute to parse the phrase "Gold Standard"

Literally, from Webster, "a monetary standard under which the basic unit of currency is defined by a stated quantity of gold and which is usually characterized by the coinage and circulation of gold, unrestricted convertibility of other money into gold, and the free export and import of gold for settling of international obligations"

In common use, it means the exemplar by which others of its kind will be evaluated...and thus implied, the matrix upon which future policy will be crafted.

NAFTA begat the TPP and the TPP will be the progenitor of the new capitalism...virile, global, out, and ultimately in charge of the fate of humanity.

My gold standard has nothing to do with money. Where does agape figure in the ledger of profit?
