Burton Blumert was an entrepreneur who knew not only all that there is to know about precious metals but also about politics and economics. He offers his wide-ranging insights in this funny, charming, and also learned collection of essays from many years of writing.

David Gordon finds that this book is full of insight: "Burt’s writings on politics are by no means confined to praise or condemnation of particular people. He grasps the essence of issues that most others fail to see at all."

Blumert was among the closest friends of Murray and Joey Rothbard, having helped him during in his professional life many times. You will find here fascinating stories of their life together. There are also movie reviews, fiction and non-fiction reviews, commentary on media talking heads, observations on various mass insanities, and a contrarian take on virtually all conventional wisdom.

This is an enjoyable book that helps you see the world through the eyes of an observer thoroughly steeped in the Rothbardian world view.

"As a writer, as you will see from this book, he is a talented satirist who can teach the truths of liberty and life while making you laugh out loud. Most of all, he has shown how the Mises-Rothbard dream of drawing together commerce and ideas can be achieved." Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
