Inflation and the Fall of the Roman Empire

by Joseph Peden

The Roman Empire, once magnificent, nevertheless came to an ignominious end. Yet the wonder is not that it eventually fell, but rather that it lasted so long.

When Money Dies

by Adam Fergusson

What happens when money dies? When bankers flood the market with worthless currency? And when that very act creates hyperinflation? Written in 1975 by Adam Fergusson, one-time adviser to Britain’s Conservative minister Lord Howe, When Money Dies details how the German economy was ruined by hyperinflation after the Weimar government allowed public spending to run amok (the collapse of the Weimar Republic cleared the way for Hitler’s Nazis to seize power in 1933).

The Case for Gold: A Minority Report of the U.S. Gold Commission

by Rep. Ron Paul and Lewis Lehrman

In 1982, Representative Ron Paul served on the US Gold Commission, which was charged with evaluating the role of gold in the monetary system. The majority of the panelists were monetarists, who regarded gold as too scarce and fiat paper as a perfectly fine substitute.  Paul's team, however, issued a minority report, which was undoubtedly the greatest result of the Commission.
