Kemp Forum

The Kemp Forum is a debate and discussion series providing a platform for the civil competition of ideas. Based on the premise that ideas, like athletes, become sharper in competition, the Kemp Forum examines cutting edge public policy questions through the kind of restless, spirited debate that Jack Kemp practiced from the heart.

True Growth: Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the Gold Standard Act of 1984

On June 6th a Kemp Forum on True Growth met to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Gold Standard Act introduced by Congressman Jack Kemp in 1984. Former members of Kemp’s staff and others gathered to speak about Jack’s views on the gold standard and how to jump start discussions for achieving a sound dollar in the near future.

Judy Shelton’s essay Sound Money, written as part of the Kemp Game Plan, provides additional insight on Jack Kemp and the gold standard.


“Re-establishing a sound honest dollar and reforming our monetary system are the unfinished business of supply side economics.”

–James Kemp President, Jack Kemp Foundation
