This episode begins with my five-minute opening statement from a FreedomFest debate on abolishing the Federal Reserve System, and then proceeds to discuss further problems with the Fed (as well as problems with the so-called Greenbackers, whose critique of the Fed is that they’d prefer to see the Treasury inflate the currency instead). Plus a very funny story that you shouldn’t miss.
