Mises Circle in Manhattan: The Fed and War Finance
The Mises Circle meets in New York City for a working lunch at the University Club: One West 54th Street, New York, New York.
Mises Institute Members and guests, Faculty, and Students are invited.
The topic is "The Fed and War Finance."
In the entire debate on American foreign and economic policy, the topic of financing is hardly ever raised. If tax increases are politically impossible (and thank goodness for that!) but the government still wants empire, the printing is there to assist. But at what cost today? What cost in history?
Special Note: A COAT AND TIE ARE REQUIRED. Lectures will be located in the College Hall meeting room.
