One of the central points of Ron Paul’s presidential campaign is a return to the gold standard.

In this video, Russ Koesterich, iShares Global Chief Investment Strategist, explains what it would mean for the U.S. and global economies if Ron Paul’s wish was granted and the U.S. dollar was once again tied to gold.

This video is the first in what will be an ongoing series from Russ on the market implications of the presidential campaign and policies proposed by the candidates.
