Teach the Bank Tellers

When I go to the bank I try to strike up a conversation with the teller, and usually try to talk to the people at the desks, not behind the glass. I point to the FDIC sign and ask them if they think that created moral hazard. Then they get curious. I then tell them about, or hand them a CD copy of "What has the government done with our money?" or give them the Mises URL.

Usually saying "there is a really cool free audio book about the history of money in America" gets them interested because most people thing of Audiobooks as really expensive, and they want to learn, but don't want to read.
