Paul adheres to Austrian School economics and libertarian criticism of fractional-reserve banking , opposing fiat currency and the monetary inflation.  He views monetary inflation as an underhanded form of taxation, because it takes value away from the money that individuals hold without having to directly tax them. He sees the creation of the Federal Reserve, and its ability to "print money out of thin air" without commodity backing, as responsible for eroding the value of money,  observing that "a dollar today is worth 4 cents compared to a dollar in 1913 when the Federal Reserve got in." In 1982, Paul was the prime mover in the creation of the . Gold Commission, and in many public speeches Paul has voiced concern over the dominance of the current banking system and called for the return to a commodity-backed currency through a gradual reintroduction of hard currency, including both gold and silver.  A commodity standard binds currency issue to the value of that commodity rather than fiat, making the value of the currency as stable as the commodity.
