Money has been used as a medium of exchange since ancient times. It affects not only economics, but also history, politics, and culture. This second CCA of the 2015-2016 academic year, co-sponsored by the Ludwig von Mises Lecture Series, will examine the history of money, as well as money-related controversies.

What George HW Bush say about a Steve Forbes view of economics, call it Voodoo Economics? Praise God Almighty that George HW Bush is going to die of old age, his control of American economics for the Rothschild family syndicate is about to end. God Almighty listen to this man Steve Forbes. I think that Ben Bernanke is a criminal gangster, Dr William Black thinks so also.

The dollar should be reduced. It will NOT destroy the global economy. The USSA, the Union, has run its course.It should be broken up into independent states just like the USSR: Life will go on and life will be better without this scourge of humanity, the USSA.

The best argument ever made for Bitcoin; the model for P2P decentralized, globally distributed, trustless, immutable currency.

Virian Bouze says:

Very smart man!

Craig Manning says:

Was the audience comprised mainly of 12 year old kids?

Chris Ward says:

Great talk.

Gimp says:

How old are the students at Hillsdale? Is that because they can't get jobs?

Erik Bahen says:

hit the nail on the head.. re-introduce meaningful price signals back into health care. I figured that out by reading Mises and Rothbard and I'm excited to hear Forbes mention that as it reinforces my thoughts on that. I'm glad he and Trump are pals as maybe this actually has a chance of coming along sooner rather than later. Also a bigger issue is the the price of money. He's dead on right that when the price of money is unclear we can't make good investments without knowing how much these investments are really costing us.

Fantastic talk, would love to share a picture with this dude

What about purchasing power?

I fell in love with the blonde girl hosting the questions, she is beautiful, now I am just sitting here consumed with lust. But I liked his analogy of money to measurement and it's absurd manipulation, Forbes is a pretty enjoyable speaker, at least to me.
