Instead of a gold standard in the U.S., base our currency on grain production, all types of grain, and value our dollar to the price of a bushel.
Average one bushel of all the grain produced in the U.S.
Example: one multi-grain bushel at $3.33, set the dollar value at that amount, when prices rise the dollar goes up, but if the prices should drop the initial value would remain at $3.33. In other words it would be capped at that price.
I don't know how legal this move would be, but I think its a much better idea than oil backed currency.
Just a thought.
Communism is impossible without total world domination
Of course global domination and genocide of any/all opposing opinions for the cause of communism were the goals of Stalin's State Socialist USSR, and history has copious amounts of records to prove this.
