  1. hi,
    im wondering if you can give me a brief summmary of the gold standard. what i am most confused about is, say, if , the US has a trade surplus of $31.6 billion against Britain,would that mean that for Britain to make that up they would have to give to the US $31.6 billion worth of gold bars.
    thanks very much
