  The Virtue of Hoarding 
Most people would admit to hoarding money only with a tinge of guilt, because to be a hoarder carries with it the suggestion of being a miser — a Scrooge. And yet, every participant in an economy based on indirect exchange holds some amount of money and can be said to be hoarding it, that is, declining to spend it. Hoarding is a strategy for achieving personal goals or for dealing with economic uncertainty.

  What is Wealth? 
"Money will not purchase happiness for the man who has no concept of what he wants: money will not give him a code of values, if he's evaded the knowledge of what to value, and it will not provide him with a purpose, if he's evaded the choice of what to seek." (Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged)

Watch Money 
Money is the barometer of a society's virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion -- when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing -- when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors

The source of all the perplexities and confusion in the United States 
All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation.

Life during the Inflation of 1923 
The most popular image of the German Inflation is the flood of paper money which issued from the printing presses and engulfed the nation. The struggle against it was hard, tragic and often ridiculous, and innumerable stories are still told about it. A German girl neatly sum it up: "You could see mail carriers on the streets with sacks on their backs, or pushing baby carriages loaded with paper money which would be devalued the next day. Life was madness, nightmare, desperation, chaos."

Alexander Fraser Tytler on Democracy
“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.

What is Economics?
Most economic texts would define economics as the study of the "production, distribution, and use of income, wealth, and commodities." While it is true that economics is concerned with these things, this is not a true definition. It implies, for example, that income and commodities already exist and that they stand apart from wealth. It assumes a level of development such that distribution is a major concern.

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
