Rothbard shows that Gresham's law was introduced not by Sir Thomas Gresham but by the "arrogant, boorish, and feisty" Sir Thomas Smith the Elder (1513–1577), a bitter critic of debasement who was exiled from the court in 1549. He fought back with a book.

This audio Mises Daily is narrated by Jeff Riggenbach.
