I don't see how reverting to the gold standard would prevent greedy
people from gambling with other people's money.

Regulation might slow them down.

Or - Koltai truism, is it time that we return to the gold standard.
Conclusion - the gold standard (absolute) precludes computer designed
derivatives AND prevents banks from crashing - providing they have
issued safe keeping certificates ONLY for gold they hold in their safes.

Food for thought,
