On the February 15, 2014 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, I covered the following issues:

“Alex Jones’ muddled “Real Banking Solution”, The real top 10 myths about HIV/AIDS, and more on Perspectives of the Gold Standard in the Austrian School.”

Lew RockwellFrom his December 31, 2013 article, “‘Rockwell, You’re No Grover Cleveland’“, Lew Rockwell says:

LRC could use your help, too, of course. We want to be more effective in 2014 for freedom. If you can help, you’ll not only do good, you’ll bother the bad guys. Let’s give them a hotfoot!

Your gift of $100, $50, or $25 would be great. $500, $1,000, or any amount would be magnificent.

The relentless and well-funded attack of our enemies took its toll this year, but we never fell, never stumbled, and are ready to counterattack in 2014.

We are determined, with your help, to work harder to be worthy of our ideas. We have the truth on our side, after all, and Murray Rothbard asked us to carry on his work. How can we falter?

With you, we can’t.

For true monetary reform and economic justice, consider donating to George Whitehurst-Berry, Wayne Walton, Tom J. Kennedy and Anthony Migchels.

Subsequent to my interview on the Real Deal with Jim Fetzer on alternative economics, a listener, Onebornfree, commented on my interview, and I have invited him to be a guest on my September 15, 2013 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism, at 9 PM EDT, to explain his support for the Austrian School of economics and voluntaryism/anarchism.

Anthony Migchels

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:

Tom WoodsFrom Tom Woods’ April 15, 2013 article, The Greenbackers’ Fake Quote Industry, picked up by LewRockwell.com the following day, I made the following comments, to which Woods responded to:

Bill Still tried to get fake quotations removed from his documentary, The Money Masters, but the copyright holder wouldn’t allow it, for reasons we can only surmise. In 2011, he created this page dedicated to exposing false monetary quotations (http://s6.zetaboards.com/Bill_Still_Reforum/topic/1177385/1/) so it’s good to see that you’ve joined forces with a Greenbacker in the interests of intellectual honesty, Tom.

To which Woods responded:

I happily concede that this speaks well of Bill Still.

Then, I commented:

In 2009, I exposed the fake Jefferson quote you cited above (https://fauxcapitalist.com/2009/10/28/what-thomas-jefferson-said-about-private-banks/) after hearing it so many times and deciding to do my own research and conceding that it must be fake if the word “deflation” wasn’t even used in Jefferson’s time.

To which he responded:

Great. Now if only you could get the 167,000 people who keep propagating the fakes to visit your page, we’d be getting somewhere.

Then, I wrote:

Tom, while fake quotations are often cited by Greenbackers, there are also fake quotations cited by Austrian School adherents, such as this fake Aristotle quotation: “In effect, there is nothing inherently wrong with fiat money, provided we get perfect authority and god-like intelligence for kings.“ We can thank James Dines for propagating that one. I emailed him asking for his source, and he never responded.

To which he responded:

I have never heard of James Dines, and I cannot imagine any serious Austrian falling for such an obvious fake. With the Greenbackers, fake quotations are systematic and everywhere.

Starting 12 minutes in, Professor Antal Fekete of the “New Austrian School” of economics explains the more than 80% manipulated collapse in the price of silver from 1879 to 1935 on the February 28, 2013 episode of the Keiser Report on Russia Today.

So much for silver being “a store of value”!
