Further Readings Reisman, George, “Our Financial House of Cards and How to Start Replacing It With Solid Gold” 3-25-08. What is happening as a result of the current expansion of credit. Rockwell, Lew, “The War on Recession,” March 19, 2008. Government action only makes things worse. It should keep hands off. Rothbard, Murray, “Did Capitalism Cause the Great Depression?” Quite the contrary!!! Paine, Thomas (1737–1809), “Society is a Blessing, but Government is Evil.” This excerpt from the writings of Founder Thomas Paine can be found in the third chapter of Liberty and the Great Libertarians, edited by Charles T. Sprading. Society, meaning the marketplace, can do everything that people nowadays think only government can do, and do it better. Lew Rockwell’s Speech at the 2008 Mises Circle, January 26, 2008, in Houston, Texas, “The Broken Window Fallacy Reapplied.” Englehardt, Tom, and Chalmers Johnson, “How to Sink America.” The debt crisis and a higher 2009 “defense” budget are sinking us. Tucker, Jeffrey A., “How Free is the ‘Free Market’?” We have languished under a heavily regulated market for more than 100 years now, but we are being told that today’s economic woes are the result of “laissez faire capitalism” and lapdog media pundits are clamoring for regulation to “cure” the problems! “With ‘free markets’ like this, who needs socialism?” he asks. Numerous Murray Rothbard articles.
