TFMR Podcast #30 - Detlev Schlichter, author of the book, Paper Money Collapse

47

Earlier on Friday, I was able to visit with economist, author and blogger Detlev Schlichter.

Current events dictated that now would be the perfect time for me to introduce you to Detlev. With the re-introduction of overt QE and the impending American elections, there's a lot of talk currently about Keynesian economics and the supposed benefits of deficit spending and unlimited fiat creation. As a committed Austrian economist, Detlev does a brilliant job exposing the fallacies of these policies as well as highlighting their inherent dangers, not just to the global economy but to individual freedom and liberty, as well.

I'm confident that you'll enjoy this podcast (even though we had a brief, technical glitch at about the 7:30 mark). You should also give great consideration to buying Detlev's book. Read it yourself and then pass it along to friends and family who, as yet, fail to grasp that the end of the Great Keynesian Experiment is truly upon us.

Why doesn't the Fed just....

allow all of us to print our own money? After all, that would stimulate printer sales, computer sales, paper sales, printer ink sales.... I am sure I am forgeting something but the economy would be stimulated. We could save tons of tax money by transferring the cost of printing money to the private sector. I just don't get it...

EDIT: Thanks for everything Turd!

Nice one, Turd!

Really enjoyed that podcast. I bought the book some months back after seeing Detlev interviewed on the Keiser Report. He struck me as being a very savvy individual. I found the book somethat tough going, likely because I didn't have a clue about economics, but it really was a great read & helped me understand a lot of the fundamentals of the subject. Highly recommended!

Keep up the good work in getting first class people for the podcasts.
