Keynes will lose this war in retrospect. Fiat money will not fund at zero social and economic cost the massive federal deficits that are justified by economists who claim to be extending Keynes’ legacy, but who in fact have no theory, merely ad hoc justifications of the relentless bureaucratization of the economy by means of the Federal Reserve System.

Cambridge House, Published on Feb 25, 2013
An epic debate about the creation and preservation of wealth featuring Rick Rule, Peter Schiff, John Mauldin and Grant Williams. The highlight is a classic faceoff between Peter Schiff and John Mauldin that takes place around 7:30 in and goes on for several minutes and really heats up at 9:30.
The debate took place February 24, 2013 at Cambridge House’s California Resource Investment Conference in Palm Springs.
