Our Enemy: Inflation

This is a great set of videos from “The Mises Circle” conference in Houston.

The Mises Circle in Houston, Texas; sponsored by Jeremy S. Davis and hosted by the Ludwig von Mises Institute. Recorded Saturday, 24 January 2009.

I particularly enjoyed “Monetary Lessons from America’s Past” by Thomas Woods – booms and panics of modern history.

The tail end of “Death Fuel” by Robert Higgs was particularly memorable. I guess tax is the fuel of death i.e. war. This talk is about state-driven war funding in recent history.

“The Gold Dollar” by Lew Rockwell is a must listen particularly for those already introduced to Austrian views. I am not terribly familiar with the anarcho-capitalism perspective which Lew brings. It’s refreshing and thought provoking.
