Brittany Cobb on Sound Money
Congratulations goes out to Grove City College economics major Brittany Cobb for writing a winning essay in the undergraduate student division of the Sound Money Essay Content sponsored by the Atlas Economic Research Foundation! Her paper is entitled "The Gold or the Green?," which she recently presented at the Austrian Student Scholars Conference here at Grove City College. Her paper is an excellent survey of the relative strengths and weaknesses of various monetary systems including the gold standard, dollarization, and fiat paper currency. This makes the second year in a row that a Grove City College economics major has won a prize in this essay contest.
