Facing a worldwide financial disaster? Federal Reserve can’t mint any more paper money? How about a trillion-dollar platinum coin? As crazy as that sounds, you may be surprised to find that the platinum coin could actually be a possible solution to our crisis. With gold and silver also out of the picture, Congress is scrambling for a solution. So could a trillion-dollar platinum coin be our answer? Is it even legal? What are other solutions?
Joining us tonight to help us answer those questions is University of California, Berkeley, business professor Laura Tyson. Also, we’ll discuss the congressional freshman class with Eleanor H. Norton, D-D.C., and Current TV’s Stephanie Miller will talk about today’s news. Tune in to Current TV at 6E/3P for the full discussion.
