Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program. Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon Torah of Economics : There is no such thing as a free lunch, and all the rest is merely explanation Basic fallacy : it is possible to do good with others people's money Thank God for Government's unlimited ability to waste The major monetary metal in history is silver, not gold.” & especially not fiat paper. Columbus did not seek a new route to the Indies in response to a majority directive. Governments never LEARN. Only people LEARN. Hell hath no fury like a bureaucrat scorned.
Paper money always returns to its intrinsic value – zero.
It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong In general, the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other. Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities The history of the great events of this world are scarcely more than the history of crime To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize
