- TFMR Podcast #30 – Detlev Schlichter, author of the book, Paper Money Collapse!
Earlier on Friday, I was able to visit with economist, author and blogger Detlev Schlichter.
Current events dictated that now would be the perfect time for me to introduce you to Detlev. With the re-introduction of overt QE and the impending American elections, there’s a lot of talk currently about Keynesian economics and the supposed benefits of deficit spending and unlimited fiat creation. As a committed Austrian economist, Detlev does a brilliant job exposing the fallacies of these policies as well as highlighting their inherent dangers, not just to the global economy but to individual freedom and liberty, as well.
I’m confident that you’ll enjoy this podcast (even though we had a brief, technical glitch at about the 7:30 mark). You should also give great consideration to buying Detlev’s book. Read it yourself and then pass it along to friends and family who, as yet, fail to grasp that the end of the Great Keynesian Experiment is truly upon us.
