The Gold Standard Before the Civil War - Murray N. Rothbard


Lecture presented by Murray N. Rothbard at the Ludwig von Mises Institute's first conference, "The Capitol Hill Conference on the Gold Standard" held in Washington, DC; November 16-17, 1983. http://mises.org

Murray N. Rothbard (1926-1995) was America's greatest radical libertarian author -- writing authoritatively about ethics, philosophy, economics, American history, and the history of ideas. He presented the most fundamental challenge to the legitimacy of government, and he refined thinking about the self-ownership and non-coercion principles.
