In the market price of gold was about times that of silver.Silver coins left circulation, exported to pay for the debts taken on to finance theAmerican Revolutionary War.

Government accounts were legally separated from the banking system. However, the mint ratio the fixed exchange rate between gold and silver at the mint continued to overvalue gold. In , the US reduced the silver weight of coins to keep them in circulation and in removed legal tender status from foreign coinage. In the final crisis of the free banking era began as American banks suspended payment in silver, with ripples through the developing international financial system. Due to the inflationary finance measures undertaken to help pay for theUS Civil War, the government found it difficult to pay its obligations in gold or silver and suspended payments of obligations not legally specified in specie gold bonds; this led banks to suspend the conversion of bank liabilities bank notes and deposits into specie. In money was made legal tender. It was afiat moneynot convertible on demand at a fixed rate into specie. These notes came to be calledgreenbacks.

The gold standard makes it difficult for governments to inflate prices through expanding the money supply. Under the gold standard, significant inflation is rare, andhyperinflationis essentially impossible because the money supply can only grow at the rate that the gold supply increases. High inflation under a gold standard is seen only when ware destroys a large part of an economy, reducing the production of goods, or when a major new gold source becomes available.

Countries that left the gold standard earlier than other countries recovered from the Great Depression sooner. For example, Great Britain and the Scandinavian countries, which left the gold standard in , recovered much earlier than France and Belgium, which remained on gold much longer. Countries such as China, which had a silver standard, almost entirely avoided the depression due to the ct it was then barely integrated into the global economy. The connection between leaving the gold standard and the severity and duration of the depression was consistent for dozens of countries, including developing countries. This may explain why the experience and length of the depression differed between national economies.

Net exports did not mirror that pattern. In the decade before the Civil War net exports were roughly constant; postwar they varied erratically around prewar levels, but fell significantly in and became negative in and . The net import of gold meant that the foreign demand for American currency to purchase goods, services, and investments exceeded the corresponding American demands for foreign currencies. In the final years of the greenback period , gold production increased while gold exports decreased. The decrease in gold exports was considered by some to be a result of changing monetary conditions. The demands for gold during this period were as a speculative vehicle, and for its primary use in the foreign exchange markets financing international trade. The major effect of the increase in gold demand by the public and Treasury was to reduce exports of gold and increase the Greenback price of gold relative to purchasing power.

After theSecond World War, a system similar to a gold standard and sometimes described as a gold exchange standard was eslished by the Bretton Woods Agreements. Under this system, many countries fixed their exchange rates relative to the U.S. dollar and central banks could exchange dollar holdings into gold at the official exchange rate of per ounce; this option was not available to firms or iniduals.

The inflationary attempts of the government from January to October were thus offset by the peoples attempts to convert their bank deposits into legal tender Hence, the will of the public caused bank reserves to decline by million in the latter half of , and the money supply, as a consequence, fell by over four billion dollars in the same period.

Some economic historians, such asBarry Eichengreen, blame the gold standard of the s for prolonging theeconomic depressionwhich started in and lasted for about a decade.In the United States, adherence to the gold standard prevented the Federal Reserve from expanding the money supply to stimulate the economy, fund insolvent banks and fund government deficits that could prime the pump for an expansion. Once off the gold standard, it became free to engage in suchmoney creation. The gold standard limited the flexibility of the central banks monetary policy by limiting their ability to expand the money supply. In the US, the central bank was required by theFederal Reserve Act to have gold backing of its demand notes.Others including former Federal Reserve ChairmanBen BernankeandNobel PrizewinnerMilton Friedmanplace the blame for the severity and length of the Great Depression at the feet of the Federal Reserve, mostly due to the deliberate tightening of monetary policy even after the gold standard.They blamed the US major economic contraction in on tightening of monetary policy resulting in higher cost of capital, weaker securities markets, reduced net government contribution to income, the undistributed profits tax and higher labor costs.The money supply peaked in March , with a trough in May .

A run on sterling caused Britain to impose exchange controls that tally weakened the standard; convertibility was not legally suspended, but gold prices no longer played the role that they did before.In financing the war and abandoning gold, many of the belligerents suffered drasticinflations. Price levels doubled in the US and Britain, tripled in France and quadrupled in Italy. Exchange rates changed less, even though European inflations were more severe than Americas. This meant that the costs of American goods decreased relative to those in Europe.

Under theBretton Woods international monetary agreement of , the gold standard was kept without domestic convertibility. The role of gold was severely constrained, as other countries currencies were fixed in terms of the dollar. Many countries kept reserves in gold and settled accounts in gold. Still they preferred to settle balances with other currencies, with the American dollar becoming the vorite. TheInternational Monetary Fundwas eslished to help with the exchange process and assist nations in maintaining fixed rates. Within Bretton Woods adjustment was cushioned through credits that helped countries avoid deflation. Under the old standard, a country with an overvalued currency would lose gold and experience deflation until the currency was again valued correctly. Most countries defined their currencies in terms of dollars, but some countries imposed trading restrictions to protect reserves and exchange rates. Therefore, most countries currencies were still basically inconvertible. In the late s, the exchange restrictions were dropped and gold became an important element in international financial settlements.

Higher interest rates intensified the deflationary pressure on the dollar and reduced investment in U.S. banks. Commercial banks convertedFederal Reserve Notesto gold in , reducing its gold reserves and forcing a corresponding reduction in the amount of currency in circulation. This speculative attack created a panic in the U.S. banking system. Fearing imminent devaluation many depositors withdrew funds from U.S. banks.As bank runs grew, a reverse multiplier effect caused a contraction in the money supply.Additionally the New York Fed had loaned over million in gold over tons to European Central Banks. This transfer contracted the US money supply. The foreign loans became questionable onceBritain, Germany, Austria and other European countries went off the gold standard in and weakened confidence in the dollar.

Afull or reservegold standard exists when the monetary authority holds sufficient gold to convert all the circulating representative money into gold at the promised exchange rate. It is sometimes referred to as the gold specie standard to more easily distinguish it. Opponents of a full standard consider it difficult to implement, saying that the quantity of gold in the world is too small to sustain worldwide economic activity at or near current gold prices; implementation would entail a manyfold increase in the price of gold.citation neededGold standard proponents have said, Once a money is eslished, any stock of money becomes compatible with any amount of employment and real income.While prices would necessarily adjust to the supply of gold, the process may involve considerable economic disruption, as was experienced during earlier attempts to maintain gold standards.
