After the past two weeks where we posted Murray Rothbard’s “Economic Depressions: Their Cause and Cure” and “Anatomy of the State”, we now get into further detail on money, where it comes from and what government has done to separate it from its original purpose. Join us for this 3-part audiobook version of Murray Rothbard’s “What Has Government Done To Our Money”?
The former “Read Rothbard Podcast” where we talk about movies from an anarcho-capitalist perspective will be re-launched as “the Actual Anarchy Podcast”.
Look for more audiobook versions of a Murray Rothbard books and articles posting on Fridays each week.
WHAT HAS GOVERNMENT DONE TO OUR MONEY?
by Murray N. Rothbard
Part 1 of 3
Preface – Introduction – Money In A Free Society
Rothbard shows precisely how banks create money out of thin air and how the central bank, backed by government power, allows them to get away with it. He shows how exchange rates and interest rates would work in a true free market. When it comes to describing the end of the gold standard, he is not content to describe the big trends. He names names and ferrets out all the interest groups involved.
Narrated by Jeff Riggenbach.

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.
