Ending the Monetary Fiasco – Returning to Sound Money 
Money plays a key role in facilitating and intensifying the process of civilization. However, this holds true only for free-market money, while with government-controlled fiat money, the opposing tendency comes into operation, namely the process of decivilization.

The Federal Reserve As An Engine Of Deflation (sic!) 
Although the Fed’s open market purchases of securities (always net) affect only the short end of the yield curve directly, through the transmission of risk-free bond speculation they will affect the rest of the yield curve indirectly. Thus the entire spectrum of interest rates will keep falling in consequence of the Fed’s open market purchases of Treasury bills (or equivalent). This is a powerful if unrecognized force in the economy causing a chain-reaction as follows:

The President Vargas
On August 13, 1938 Brazil revealed its greatest gem when a diamond weighing 726.6 carats was picked up in the gravels of the San Antonio River in the Coromandel district of Minas Gerais. Two garimpeiros (diamond diggers or prospectors), Joaquim Venancio Tiago and Manoel Miguel Domingues, were the lucky finders. This precious stone weighed around 726.6 carats.

History of the Gold Train
If you think American troop and mercenary desecration and theft of man's earliest treasures and artifacts from museums and institutions in Baghdad was deplorable, realize that from the time the US Army robbed and pillaged the American South our Empire has been built on the order of the Vandals and Berserkers. The story of the Gold Train you will read is the greatest theft of a people's personal and national treasure in the history of the world. And sadly, it was accomplished by American European occupation troops

North America's First Experience with Paper Money: Card Money in New France 
Everybody knows that New Orleans was founded by the French. But the area where we stand in Alabama also used to be part of the French North American empire in the 18th century. Not far from here, north of Montgomery, was a military fort called Fort Toulouse. The French controlled one third of the continent at the time.

Letter to a Bank Manager 
Dear Sir, I am writing to thank you for bouncing my cheque with which I endeavoured to pay my plumber last month. By my calculations, three 'nanoseconds' must have elapsed between his presenting the cheque and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honour it. I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my Pension, an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only thirty eight years. You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and also for debiting my account £30 by way of penalty for the inconvenience caused to your bank.

Summary: Though banking and government have had a corrupt relationship throughout history, the Suffolk Bank and Independent Treasury System, both of which were prominent during the “wildcat banking” era of the 19th Century, represent significant efforts at reform. In his 1994 book,Money Mischief: Episodes in Monetary History, Milton Friedman, never a champion of a gold commodity monetary system in spite of hisdisillusionment with fiat money regimes late in life, tells us that: Throughout recorded history .

Gold and Economic Freedom (1966) 
An almost hysterical antagonism toward the gold standard is one issue which unites statists of all persuasions. They seem to sense - perhaps more clearly and subtly than many consistent defenders of laissez-faire - that gold and economic freedom are inseparable, that the gold standard is an instrument of laissez-faire and that each implies and requires the other.

The US Continental Currency – 1776 
In spite of a constitutional bar to un-backed paper money which existed at the time Abraham Lincoln was forced, in 1862, to issue the first tranche of what was eventually $450,000,000 of "greenbacks" needed to finance the North's efforts during the civil war. The greenback was a credit note. Unlike America's extant currency it conferred no right of redemption into gold. What it did do was offer a promise that at some unspecified future date

The Ghost of Fort Knox Past: Part 3 
We’ve been looking into an extremely complex and controversial issue over the past two weeks. Does Ft. Knox contain the historical gold it claims? Gold no longer backs our circulating money. Still, those who hold fiduciary responsibilities to safeguard our gold are the ones who actually do issue our money. If you can’t trust them with the gold, how can you trust them with the money?
