Money, Banking and the Federal Reserve

Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson understood “The Monster”. But to most Americans today, “Federal Reserve” is just a name on the dollar bill. They have no idea of what the central bank does to the economy, or to their own economic lives; of how and why it was founded and operates; or of the sound money and banking that could end the statism, inflation, and business cycles that the Fed generates.

Dedicated to Murray N. Rothbard, steeped in American history and Austrian economics, and featuring Ron Paul, Joseph Salerno, Hans Hoppe, and Lew Rockwell, this extraordinary documentary is the clearest, most compelling explanation ever offered of the Fed, and why curbing it must be our first priority.

Alan Greenspan was not, we’re told, happy about this 1996 blockbuster. Watch it, and you’ll understand why. This is economics and history as they are meant to be: fascinating, informative, and motivating. This movie is changing America.

25 Things Your Car Mechanic Won’t Tell You

Although having a car can be helpful, when it comes time for repairs it would be good to know these 25 things your car mechanic won’t tell you.

When I was a young man I fell for the old “I wouldn’t drive that car if I were you.”  Number One scare tactic.  It’s usually pulled on women, and the very young or the very old.

Remember that your local mechanic is out to make money.  Some are crooks, some are honest.  Try to get to know your mechanic by giving him smaller jobs  before you give him a major one.
