Sound Money: Parallel Currencies-Roadmap To Monetary Freedom - Congressional Hearing 2012
What: U.S. House of Representatives Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology Subcommittee Hearing "Sound Money: Parallel Currencies And The Roadmap To Monetary Freedom"
When-Where: Thursday, August 2, 2012 10:00 a.m. Room 2128 Rayburn House Office Building, Washington D.C.

Hearing Purpose:
Congressman Ron Paul, Chairman of the Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology Subcommittee:
“The American people have suffered for decades from the declining purchasing power of the dollar. The Federal Reserve has abused its position as the monopolist issuer of currency to enrich Wall Street and impoverish Main Street. The Fed can effectively create money out of thin air with impunity, while creators of gold and silver currencies face jail time. This is a travesty. The only way to stabilize the economy is to return to monetary freedom by legalizing Constitutional money. Until the American people are free to choose the money they want to use, and not what the government forces them to use, the economy never will be truly stable and any recovery will be illusory(1.usa.gov/OkpTD3).”

Committee Chairman: Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX)

Dr. Richard Ebeling, Professor of Economics, Northwood University, Midland, Michigan
