I can’t stress enough how important it is for you to read the book, What Has Government Done to Our Money? by Murray N. Rothbard, which you can download here (free and legal). This short book will give you an overview of the history of money, define money in simple terms, and explain how the current system is robbing us blind. What Has Government Done to Our Money? is easy to understand, even if you know nothing about economics.
Everyone should read this book, but I must warn you: After you read it, there is no turning back! You will be empowered with knowledge that will anger you.
After you’ve read it, you’ll probably want to do like I did and get a few hard copies to give away. You can buy What Has Government Done to Our Money? for a good price.
