Our Enemy, Inflation

This Conference is Full.

How many times has Washington proclaimed that inflation has been conquered, only to have it return when and where we least expect it? Inflation remains today the great enemy of individual economic planning. This has both economic and cultural consequences.

We are supposed to think that an economic crisis caused by easy money can be cured by more of it. Instead, such policies can only deepen and lengthen the crisis. Ever since Keynes especially, central-bank expansionism has been the accepted policy always and everywhere. It's long past time to overthrow that orthodoxy, and try what has become a radical, new solution: sound money. This is no pipe dream. It is the only alternative to global hyperinflation.
