Walter Block on Gold and Sound Money

  by    0   0

Casey Research recently published an interview with Walter Block, a well-known Austrian economist who teaches at Loyola University and is a Senior Fellow of the Ludwig von Mises Institute. Block talked at length about the gold standard, the Federal Reserve’s disastrous money printing, and just how bad the economy really is. Enjoy!

“I think it was Lenin who said that the best way to destroy an enemy is to debauch that country’s currency. That’s what these guys are: currency debauchers. Ben “the paper hanger” Bernanke is going berserk with his quantitative easing. There’s no more quantitative easing one, two, or three, its quantitative easing forever. Every month, billions of new dollars are pumped into the economy.

So the last thing the government wants is this barbaric relic to limit their spending to what they can actually tax and borrow. And that, of course, is why people like you, me, Doug, and like-minded others, favor the gold standard; we want the government handcuffed, so it can’t go around spending money it doesn’t have on unnecessary wars and other destructive and counterproductive things governments like to do.”
