From Ancient Rome through  modern-day America, money inflation has been the means by which the state extracts wealth without recourse to taxation.

Such a monetary policy leads to gutting savings, punishing investment, and the launching of economic cycles and even soaring prices and banking disasters. But perhaps the greatest cost is in human liberty itself. The intellectual tragedy here is that few make the connection between the quality of money and the rise of despotism. 

The prospect of hyperinflation in our future is the great horror that awaits us on the current path. It will not only mean death to the dollar but the rise of a ghastly statism.

This Mises Circle is devoted to exploring the relationship and providing a path toward permanent freedom. Admission is $85 per person and this includes lunch.  Through the generosity of James M. Rodney, each attendee will receive a complimentary copy of Henry Hazlitt's The Inflation Crisis and How to Resolve It.
