Ron Paul – Hey Fed! It’s The Free Market Stupid, Pt I

"In 1971 it happened, and that’s when I started speaking out [about the Fed.] Really nobody listened. There were a lot of seeds planted about sound money, especially by Murray and others, and Mises. They talked about this. There was no audience out there. I would go to campuses, when I first went into Congress, and I would get 20 or 30 people come out and maybe convert one or two."

Raise The Minimum Wage, Destroy The Market

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Any wage control damages a market because it has an effect on the price mechanism. Wage is part of the price mechanism, too. Your ability as a businessperson to set the wage, this is part of the price mechanism. This is how you arrive at how much to sell the donut for. The labor cost, that goes into the price mechanism. Anytime the government comes in and sets the price, it is altering forever the market economy. It’s going to have unintended consequences. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

No Matter Who’s Running The Economy, It’s In The Red And Getting Worse

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In what document, under what rule, under what act of Congress, under what amendment to the Constitution has any president ever acquired the power to “run the economy”? My reading of history, the president doesn’t have the power, shouldn’t have the power, and you shouldn’t want to confer it on him, yet here we are. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Bernanke, Bailouts, Bankruptcies, And Bubbles

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you think of yourself as a sow and you’re a major city and you actually had to withdraw yourself from the federal trough and had to pay and manage and take care of your own finances the old-fashioned way, most of this stuff would not happen. Many of the things that occur in major cities would not happen because there would not be the underlying promise there that the federal government is always there with a hand out with programs.

Bernanke Continues To Build Up The Economy For A Crash

Marketplace Intervention By The State Causes Healthcare Inflation

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Who is to say, without government mandate that a health insurance company must cover this, cover mental health, cover reproductive services, hangnails, whatever else they say you must cover, who is to say that any of the things that prolong life or are beneficial to the human condition and to our health are based on the price mechanism? The only way you would develop these things is if people could afford to pay for them. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Germany Survived And America Will Survive Too

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If the people of Germany could survive the Kaiser, World War I, Weimar Republic, unbelievable inflation, the rise of national socialism, the rise of Nazism, World War II, and then come out on the other side wealthier and better off than they were when they went in, I think we’re going to do okay as Americans. We’re resourceful. We have, as I said, an unbelievable amount of resources at our disposal. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

X Day – Return To A Gold Standard Is Possible

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The German people are one of the better practitioners of free market economics in Europe. This is all traced back to Austrian School thought and Wilhelm Roepke. I didn’t know any of this. It is therefore a story that can be used as part of the historical record for those that say, [mocking] “We can’t go back to a gold standard. Everything would be devalued.” The Germans did it. They did it in an orderly fashion and that currency remained sound for decades. Then the rebuilding and rebirth of the German economy happened. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Wilhelm Roepke And Ron Paul Were Right…History Is Repeating Itself

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is relevant today because we are in this similar situation. This is why when Ron Paul says he believes foreign policy is the biggest issue that we have to confront and why so many of you, again leading politicized lives, say the same thing to me and that I’m wrong and Rand is wrong and any of those that are non-interventionists and are not for big war and big military, that we’re wrong and dangerous and a threat. No, you’ve got that wrong. You’ve got it backwards. Paul is correct. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The problem is that our wages have not increased. We talk about this every now and then, how inflation has driven the price of everything up.

There Is Truth To Be Found If You Look Beyond The Mainstream Media

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - We’re confronted again with our own arrogance, it seems to me. We’re the smart ones because we know what the real unemployment numbers are and we know what the real state of jobs is. We make an awful lot of assumptions, and I think we do so at the peril of actual good and honest debate. To say that no one is out there saying it -- you’re not the first person to say this to me -- I just think is preposterous. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

Gas Prices Aren’t About Gas, They’re About Inflation

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Do we have shortages of petroleum? No. Do we have shortages of new finds of petroleum? No. Do we have less imports? No. Is there something you can put your finger on that makes you say the supply has been interrupted? No. What’s driving this? Ladies and gentlemen, it ought to be obvious to the studious observer that what is driving this and what now necessitates that the price of crude stay at $95 is the dollar itself.

The Economy Is Fine – Debt, Deficit and Unemployment Don’t Matter

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Wait a minute, the last quarter of the year is supposed to be the best, isn’t it? It’s when everybody shells out all their dough on Christmas gifts.

That’s not what happened. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

Student Loans – Bad Economic Policy But Big Business

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Big business loves big government. Big education is big business. Now you have the companies going: Don’t worry, dude, you just leave us alone and write these regulations that we want and we will make it a policy that someone has got to be going to one of your big education universities in order to become an intern for us. We’ll lock them out. We will slam the door shut. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

Inflation IS Showing Up and We’re All Suffering It Like A Tax Increase

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - It is a woeful situation, ladies and gentlemen, that is being exacerbated by the actions of the Federal Reserve in this thing called quantitative easing, which is happening right now as I speak. When I said that inflation was happening right now, you know it and I know it because we know that the Bernanke printing press continues unabated, that the dollars continue to flow into the market, continue to float out there, and are driving the cost of everything up. It may be slow. It’s not hyperinflation, but it most certainly is inflation. There is not a corresponding wage inflation that goes along with it. At the end of the day, you have less in your pocket and haven’t done anything wrong other than to question mightily enough the actions of the government, both state and federal.

Mike and Phil Discuss Debt and Inflation for the 3,007,634th Time

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - You know what I say, Phil, at the end of all this? Who cares? Literally, who cares? You just said it yourself. The dollar crashes in some manner, the Euro goes first, some of the European currencies crash, then the dollar crashes. There will be a period of hyperinflation which will then be followed by deflation, I believe. I know Peter Schiff and other economists believe it’s going to be hyperinflation. You’re going to have to have $170 to buy a gallon of gas. I think maybe for a time you have hyperinflation, but I believe that ultimately you have a serious deflation. Then you’re going to have people that are not going to be able to live the fake lifestyle they live today because it’s supported by debt. The government runs debt up on your behalf.

What Exactly IS QE3 and What Does it Mean For You?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Let me update you on this QE3... With all the discussion that we’re having about Libya today and with foreign policy and whether Mitt jumped the gun or whether he did not, the real tragedy and travesty, or I shouldn’t say the real, the other tragedy and travesty is that when you go to work today, unless your boss comes in and tells you, “Hey, Bernyankme is printing money today. He’s juicing the stock market. Smithers, you get a raise,” unless your wage today gets adjusted to the massive inflation that’s coming our way, you’re earning less than you were yesterday.
