The Jacksonians’ Bank War: Liberty versus Power

Supporters Summit 2020, Jekyll Island, Georgia

The Jacksonians saw central banking for what it was: a way of making the rich even richer, while ripping off ordinary people. We remember the Jacksonians not just because they were right about the central bank, but because they were also very successful in their fight against the Bank and its allies.

From the 2020 Supporters Summit, presented at the historic Jekyll Island Club Resort on Jekyll Island, Georgia, on 9 October 2020.
