Radical Capitalist Episode 65: Monetary Freedom and Monetary Reform
Has the Federal Reserve been a failure? And if so, what should we do about it?
In this episode, Don Watkins mans the station while Yaron is on the road in Miami, New York and Philadelphia. Don will be joined by special guest George Selgin, director of the Center for Monetary and Financial Alternatives at the Cato Institute and one of today’s leading experts on free banking. Tune in as they discuss the morality and practicality of fractional reserve banking, the gold standard, the Fed’s origins, and the Fed’s role in the recent crisis and (lack of) recovery.
