Ellen Brown is scheduled to be my guest on Exposing Faux Capitalism on June 16, 2013 from 8 to 9 PM Eastern on Truth Frequency Radio to discuss the highly successful 2013 Public Banking Institute conference from June 2 to 4, and current issues like her recent article, Elizabeth Warren’s QE for Students: Populist Demagoguery or Economic Breakthrough?
I previously interviewed Ellen on March 31, 2013, when she provided shocking revelations about “their” plans for your money.

Thanks to you, the readers, and Dr. Stan Monteith, for making May 2013 the most successful month in terms of total visits to fauxcapitalist.com, since being founded in 2008.
The reason is because of the over 16,000 views of my transcript of Dr. Stan Monteith, a 35-year orthopedic surgeon, and his stunning analysis on May 8, 2013 about the Boston Marathon bombings and Jeff Bauman’s leg amputations, with his ultimate conclusion: “I believe that this young man was an actor.”
Previously, the best month was January 2013, thanks to my 40 articles.

Here is part of my response to a reader who proposes a higher minimum wage of $15 an hour in the United States, arguing that it can result in higher pay with minimal price increases. But I ask, what about overall employment?
“I have personally seen the case where an imposed higher than market wage has resulted in better pay with the same number of employees as there would otherwise be, and the company still being able to make a profit.
The example I’m referring to is a franchise coffee shop at the university I went to where the workers are unionized and get at least several dollars above the minimum wage.
While you are right about scenarios where an imposed minimum wage increase could result in big gains for affected employees with relatively minimal cost increases, one thing that generally will be affected is employment.
It is for that reason that I feel I don’t feel I should support restricting the job opportunities of others, and this is particularly noticeable with youth unemployment, where, due to other factors like a relatively high high school dropout rate of 15% and over, such students will have a difficult time seeking as many jobs at a highly increased minimum wage.
The university coffee shop is a special case, because of the power of the university in being able to regulate employment and competition of food options in light of a high on-campus demand.“

That is the question I have subsequent to my public and private offer to Tom Woods to moderate a debate between himself and Anthony Migchels of Real Currencies.
As I disclosed at the start of my March 31, 2013 interview with Anthony Migchels, Tom Woods didn’t accept, and the reasons weren’t because he was concerned I wasn’t a worthy moderator, or that Anthony Migchels wasn’t a worthy debater, or that he wasn’t available at the proposed time.
Tom Woods supports a debate between fellow Austrian School supporter Bob Murphy and Paul Krugman.
Just as Paul Krugman may not be interested in giving a platform to his critics in the Austrian School, perhaps Tom Woods is also not interested in giving a platform to a well-researched, voluntary, interest-free currency reformer such as Anthony Migchels.
For more on Tom Woods, see my articles:

For more on Anthony Migchels, see my most popular interview ever, with Anthony Migchels, about the elite origins of the Austrian School.
