Now that Newt said we should have committee to study how to go back on some type of gold standard, what do you think this comment will have on the POG?

About $0.00. Talking about starting a committee to study something is Washington-speak which means "I don't really care about an issue, but I'm going to pretend like I am doing something about it so I can get votes."

If Newt were to say he's completely in favor of a gold standard, that might move the POG about $0.01. Newt flip-flops all the time. He's the consummate politician.
