Windows Media Video (.wmv) Money, Banking and the Federal Reserve

Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson understood "The Monster". But to most Americans today, Federal Reserve is just a name on the dollar bill. They have no idea of what the central bank does to the economy, or to their own economic lives; of how and why it was founded and operates; or of the sound money and banking that could end the statism, inflation, and business cycles that the Fed generates.

Dedicated to Murray N. Rothbard, steeped in American history and Austrian economics, and featuring Ron Paul, Joseph Salerno, Hans Hoppe, and Lew Rockwell, this extraordinary new film is the clearest, most compelling explanation ever offered of the Fed, and why curbing it must be our first priority.

Alan Greenspan is not, we're told, happy about this 42-minute blockbuster. Watch it, and you'll understand why. This is economics and history as they are meant to be: fascinating, informative, and motivating. This movie could change America.

Audio (.mp3, .wav, etc.) Time and Money

Professor Roger Garrison is a leader in the field of Austrian macroeconomics, and has had a burning passion for his whole career to present Austrian business cycle theory in terms that mainstream economists can understand and identify. This book represents the culmination of his efforts in that regard.

He sets the Austrian theory against the Keynesian and mainstream theory, and shows how they are different in terms of the relationship between money, interest, capital, and investment. By doing this, he not only shows the precise way in which Keynesian theory makes unrealistic assumptions about the way the world works; he also shows how the Austrian theory more fully captures the actual workings of the market in real-world settings. He thereby goes a long way toward refining the positive theory.

In particular, this volume is useful (and famed) for its clear graphical exposition of the trade cycle theory. He shows the interrelationship between all the factors that affect investment, without leaving out critical dynamic issues such as time and the heterogeneity of the capital stock.

This book is useful for anyone who seeks to gain the clearest possible perspective on the mechanics of the business cycle. But it will be especially appreciated by those who are confronted with Keynesian-style modeling in school or professional life.

The book was published in 2006, and is made available here at a price far lower than the original publisher put on the book. The hope is that it will lead to wide distribution of this important and modern contribution to Austrian macroeconomics.
