Internet Video


The Von Mises Institute has streaming videos available over the Internet: Go to their video web page, and scroll down to find the following titles and descriptions:

Money, Banking and the Federal Reserve
According to the Von Mises Institute, this video is: “steeped in American history and Austrian economics, and featuring [Congressman] Ron Paul, Joseph Salerno, Dr. Hermann-Hans Hoppe, and Lew Rockwell, this extraordinary film is the clearest, most compelling explanation ever offered of the Fed, and why curbing it must be our first priority.” (42:08 minutes)”

This complements my paper: “Despite Bullish Hoopla, A Behind the Curtain at Fed Desperation and Intervention Wizardry.” One cannot begin to understand the economy and Wall Street until one first understands how the money supply and bank credit have been manipulated by an establishment that has existed in America since 1913.

NOW with Bill Moyers
Bill Moyers interviews Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr., founder and president of the Mises Institute. Rockwell provides a libertarian perspective on America’s highly distorted and dysfunctional economy and discusses the economic costs of war and other government interventions (March 7, 2003). (20:52 minutes). (As I mention in my “Learning the Score” article, the “bottom up” libertarian perspective provides a valuable counterpoint to the establishment’s “top down” approach. Although it neglects what I feel is a third vital “sociobiological” perspective, it still provides important perspectives missing from most Wall Street analysis).

Riverside conversation :
The above link connects to James Puplava's financialsense.com site that has both a transcript and a link to the Dutch station Tagenlich for the video replay. Interview features Jim Rogers, Dr. Marc Faber, and Daniel Yergin, Feb 9, 2003, (50 minutes). This is the case for investments related to “things” such as precious metals and other commodities that tend to rise with inflation. The speakers believe that such investments are likely to outperform the overall stock market and bonds in the next five to ten years. Please ignore video prefaces and the Dutch language introduction since the actual interview is in English.
