Freeing Americans from the control of the Fed was a passion for Dr. Ron Paul while in Congress, and he joins Jeff this week on Mises Weekends. The two talk about his efforts to legalize the use of gold and silver as untaxed currency, and his involvement with sound money initiatives in states like Arizona and Wyoming. Plus he shares some great anecdotes about Reagan's Gold Commission, Alan Greenspan, and Paul Volcker.
And in case you missed them, here are this weeks Mises Wire articles, covering a wide array of topics including: gold standard, interest rates, healthcare, the problems with law schools, public education, and government unhealthcare.
The Mises Institute works to advance the Austrian School of economics and the Misesian tradition, and defends the market economy, private property, sound money, and peaceful international relations, while opposing state intervention.
