Show 799  Part 1of 4. A History of Money and Banking in the United States (Part 1, 1 of  4) by Murray N. Rothbard

 

Audio book version of 'A History of Money and Banking in the United States: The Colonial Era to World War II' by Murray N. Rothbard, as read by Matthew Mezinskis. http://mises.org

 

The master teacher of American economic history covers money and banking in the whole of American history, to show that the meltdown of our times is hardly the first. And guess what caused them in the past? Paper money, loose credit, reckless lending standards, government profligacy, and central banking.

 

Murray N. Rothbard (1926-1995) was America's greatest radical libertarian author -- writing authoritatively about ethics, philosophy, economics, American history, and the history of ideas. He presented the most fundamental challenge to the legitimacy of government, and he refined thinking about the self-ownership and non-coercion principles.

Show 797 From Book TV- Niall Ferguson, "Civilization: The West and the Rest," hosted by Susan Jacoby. 56 min. 39 sec. - December 10, 2011.

The acclaimed economist and historian argues that western civilization came to dominate the world by developing and using six concepts: competition, science, the rule of law, modern medicine, consumerism and the work ethic. But the more the rest of the world adopts these concepts, the less the West dominates it. Mr. Ferguson discusses the historic power of several Western empires and their inevitable decline with author and cultural critic Susan Jacoby.

Show 791  UNCOMMON KNOWLEDGE

TAKE IT TO THE LIMITS: Milton Friedman on Libertarianism

with guest Milton Friedman

December 20, 2010 | Recorded on February 10, 1999

 

What are the elements of the libertarian movement and how does one of its most illustrious proponents, Milton Friedman, apply its tenets to issues facing the United States today? Milton Friedman, recipient of the 1976 Nobel Memorial Prize for economic science, was a senior research fellow at the Hoover Institution from 1977 to 2006, discusses, on February 10, 1999, how he balances the libertarians' desire for a small, less intrusive government with environmental, public safety, food and drug administration, and other issues.
