Logical Anarchy Today Episode 132 - The History of Monopolizing Money

Logical Anarchy published on

Seeking direct control of the medium of exchange and it's creation has and will always be one of the first goals any would be statesmen/warlord seeks. They dress it up as creating economic stability despite the fact that history shows this to be the cause of economic instability. In today's show I give 3 examples from history going back as far as the Roman Empire to how this is true. History has given us many warnings and examples of this kind of stuff from Anglo-Saxon Kings and their Game of Thrones styled politics to Irish Kings and Roman Emperors. At it's heart, controlling the creation of money is not about economic stability but creating wealth for the political elite at the expense of everyone else.
