A Chance to Present

Hello DP!

I am looking for your input.

For my Public Policy Towards Business class here at Rutgers I have been offered the chance to give a presentation on the subject of my choosing. (as long as it relates to the class)

My choice is "Monopoly of Currency by the Federal Reserve"

The professor is intrigued because he disagrees with it off the bat, but he is excited because he never thought of the dollar as a monopoly.

I want to make an impression on the class that will really impact their stance.

So please help me brainstorm. The presentation should be between 10-15 minutes.

What are some key issues you think are most exciting to learn about related to free currencies and the federal reserve?

A business professor who never thought of the dollar as a

monopoly?

Spend more time here and less money in school.

You'll save on tuition costs and be better educated.

As for practical advice, read Ron Paul's "End the Fed", or Rothbard's "A History of Money and Banking in the United States" - http://mises.org/books/historyofmoney.pdf, or Gary North's series "What is Money" - http://garynorth.com/public/5678.cfm

Competition

Competition is the core issue here.

If the banks want to issue currency, fine, but if it had competition, then they wouldn't be able to debase the currency if they were forced to protect its value. You would simply choose to hold and pay with other currencies that hold their values better. The banks wouldn't be able to just print money at will.
