Episode 33 – Hell or Fractional Reserve Banking (53:01)

We talk about the film “Hell or High Water” starring Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges and Ben Foster. It’s a 2016 heist film centered on two brothers who rob the bank that their family owe their mortgage to. Oil was recently discovered on the property, but they are at risk of losing the ranch within a few days. They resort to this elaborate bank robbery plan to save the ranch and secure the oil money for their children. No NAP violations here right?!?! We discuss a giant plot hole and a bit about the 2008 financial crisis and fractional reserve lending.

Presented by Read Rothbard:

Read Rothbard is comprised of a small group of voluntaryists who are fans of Murray N. Rothbard. We curate content on the www.ReadRothbard.com site including books, lectures, articles, speeches, and we make a weekly podcast based on his free-market approach to economics. Our focus is on education and how advancement in technology improves the living standards of the average person.

The Read Rothbard Podcast is all about Maximum Freedom. We look at movies and current events from a Rothbardian Anarchist perspective. If it’s voluntary, we’re cool with it. If it’s not, then it violated the Non-Aggression Principle and Property Rights – the core tenants of Libertarian Theory – and hence – human freedom.
