Great video presented by Timothy Terrell at the Mises Circle at Furman University: “The Coming Currency Crisis and the Downfall of the Dollar”.  For those who are interested in better understanding fiat currencies and reckless inflation from a history perspective, this video provides a terrific overview.

You’ll also gain a better understanding of  the magnitude of damage and theft inflation perpetrates against a country’s people (and especially against its middle and lower classes who least understand its disruptive effects).

Everyone’s thrilled when Apple’s iPad2 provides a greater bang for the buck for less money than the original.  So why do governments and central banks try and convince people that higher prices are good for everything else?
