This week Franklin Sanders and I will be joined by attorney and constitutional scholar Edwin Vieira, author of Pieces of Eight: The Monetary Powers and Disabilities of the United States Constitution. We will be talking about the Constitutional basis for our current currency system as well as new developments underway, including state legislative efforts to support the use of silver and gold in daily transactions. Edwin is working on a new book. Hopefully, he can update us on it – it is quite exciting. I also want to touch on ill-advised efforts to open up and compromise the Constitution in the guise of “grassroots reform.”
We will start with Money & Markets and Franklin’s update on the gold and silver markets. Franklin and I will focus on questions on precious metals. Post your questions in the comments section for this blog post.
In Let’s Go the Movies, we offer this excellent interview of Edwin Vieira by James Turk earlier this year. It includes a discussion of what happened in America long ago when our continental currency collapsed and the importance of our constitutional framework in such a circumstance.
Talk to you Thursday!
Listen live on Thursday evening by phone, Skype or online, or listen at your convenience by downloading the MP3 after it is posted on Friday.
