As pro, I argue that the World should return to the gold standard as in the gold standard of 1950. Con argues that it shouldn't return to the gold standard as in the gold standard of 1950.

Definitions:
The Gold Standard:
A monetary system in which a country's government allows its currency unit to be freely converted into fixed amounts of gold and vice versa. The exchange rate under the gold standard monetary system is determined by the economic difference for an ounce of gold between two currencies. The gold standard was mainly used from 1875 to 1914 and also during the interwar years. [1]

The World:
the earth, together with all of its countries and peoples. [2]

Should:
must; ought (used to indicate duty, propriety, or expediency): [3]

Return:
to restore to a former or to a normal state

Rules:
1. Breaking any rules (except for rules related to voting) will result in automatic forfeiture of all seven points to the opponent. If both sides break the rules, votes will be placed as normal. Invalid votes will result in reporting the vote.
2. No Trolling
3. Both Sides have equal Burden Of Proof. Con must argue that the world should stay as it is. Pro must argue it should return back to the gold standard
4. Please take this seriously
5. No Semantics or kritiks
6. No Insults or Ad Hominem
7. No arguments outside of the debate, so no arguments in the comments, also no sources outside of debate or in the comments, unless both parties agree to it. For example if one forfeits, the other can allow the party which forfeited to write their argument in the comments.
9. No Cheating
10. No Spamming
11. Only Votes which have Reason for Decision will be accepted
12. No Straw-Man Arguments or other fallacies

Is it alright if I also post my argument in the comments because I won't be able to meet the deadline.
