If the changes can be made in the first place (untying the currency from gold) it can be unmade. The problem isn't that it's an unrealistic solution, the problem is it's a solution that forces people to admit they made a mistake.
Pretending that this isn't "in reality" in order to save some egos is rather silly. There are a lot of people who make a lot of money from the system they way it is, and those people have spent a good deal of time and money telling the public a gold system won't work and that a little inflation is needed in order for the economy to grow.
If you're telling me that I can't come up with a real solution you guys can do whatever you want and I'll just wait for the dollar to collapse. It's well on it's way anyway.
