Now that we have finished the 3-part audiobook version of Murray Rothbard’s “What Has Government Done To Our Money?”, we move on to the companion piece “The Case For A 100 Percent Gold Dollar”. Presented in two parts, this book take the history of money’s origins that you just learned and applies the lessons to advocate for a free-market money that will likely, organically rest on a foundation of gold and silver.
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.
The Case for a 100 Percent Gold Dollar
by Murray N. Rothbard
Part 1 of 2
Rothbard not only argues for the gold standard; he shows how it can be restored in a practical, step-by-step plan. No other system will stop the seemingly endless monetary inflation of the Federal Reserve system. He also makes his strongest case against fractional reserve banking. This essay was written in 1962 and this edition includes Rothbard’s sweeping introduction from 1991, in which he argues that the true gold standard is more viable than ever.
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.
