    The Mises Institute is pleased to present this audio edition of Rothbard's most famous monetary essay - the one that has influenced two generations of economists, investors, and business professionals. The Mises Institute has united this book with its natural complement: a detailed reform proposal for a 100 percent gold dollar. "The Case for a 100 Percent Gold Dollar" was written a decade before the last vestiges of the gold standard were abolished.

    Would you consider the audio edition of What Has Government Done to Our Money? to be better than the print version?

    What you have learned in university Economics classes is mostly wrong. This book, Murray Rothbard, and the Austrian School of Economics, will give you a complete education. Ludwig Von Meses, the founder of the Austrian School, explains everything in a truthful way. Murray Rothbard knows how to make Economics interesting. Jeff Riggenbach does an excellent job of reading. You will never look at the news the same way again. This book is highly recommended. I haven't read the print version of this book, but have read, and listened to other Rothbard and Mises works.

    The Great Depression was not a crisis for capitalism but merely an example of the downturn part of the business cycle, which was generated by government intervention in the economy. Had this book appeared in the 1940s, it might have spared the world much grief. Even so, its appearance in 1963 meant that free-market advocates had their first full-scale treatment of this crucial subject.

    Damon says: "required reading- hard to capture over audio"
    "Murray Rothbard tells it like it is - or was"

    If you could sum up America's Great Depression in three words, what would they be?

    Economics is normally a boring subject, but Austrian School economics tells the truth about everything. If you want to truly understand our money and what's going on you should listen to this book. I would also recommend Rothbard's other books, like What has Government Done to our Money.
