The role of gold in the world#s exchange system has been hotly contested by leading economists like John Locke, David Hume and Maynard Keynes # who attacked gold # and Jacques Rueff. Nevertheless, the arguments in favour of gold, which includes the quantity theory of money, have remained scattered. With the assistance of the World Gold Council, Pickering & Chatto has collected the most important arguments in favour of gold, including such seminal works as David Ricardo#s High Price of Bullion and W Stanley Jevons, Money and the Mechanism of Exchange.
