– Defining inflation as an increase in the money supply.
– Holding the Fed and government to account.
– Economic Collapse and the necessity of personal responsibility
Tom welcomes the legendary Dr. Ron Paul to the show. Ron discusses the need to reduce the size and scope of government. People today rely on the government too much, and politicians can’t resist taking advantage of this dependence. It’s like an addiction, and stopping it is a problem. The plunge protection team has done a miraculous job of propping up the market. But, unfortunately, the dollar will continue to decline, and inflation will result in the prices of everything going up.

Dr. Paul considers inflation to be the increase in money supply and credit. Inflation in the 1970s was due to the money supply, and they continued to print until Volcker raised rates. Various metrics only see the effects of inflation, not the root causes. The Fed creates inflation. The average person only understands that they don’t have enough money. Inflation is a direct theft of wealth and is a hidden form of tax on the public.
The Fed will try to control prices with policies, but wage and price controls never work. The problem is not with prices but with the system itself. That is treating the symptoms while completely ignoring the root problems. The Fed needs to be audited, so its lack of transparency can be demonstrated to the world.
People need to take responsibility and make their own decisions and not rely on the government. Don’t give up your rights and responsibilities to authority figures. Everything should be voluntary through consent. But, unfortunately, today, we don’t have an actual free-market economy.
Dr. Paul expects a panic out of the dollar and an economic collapse. The result will be higher and higher prices and runaway inflation until most things become unaffordable. It will be very bad and chaotic. Everything is fragile today, and nothing is stable. It might be like that apartment complex in Florida where there were major problems with its foundations.
Liberty is the solution, and there is a natural tendency for people to choose freedom when given a choice. The ideas of Liberty are alive and well, and we should each encourage and teach others these ideas.
Dr. Ron Paul is a physician and former twelve-term congressman from Texas who ran for president in 2008.
