An original venture in economic theory, public policy, and monetary reform, this book revives a powerful but long-forgotten idea that conventional thinking dismisses as dangerous and shows not only how to make it safe but how to use it in some brilliant new ways. A whole new dimension of electronic money is explored in this path-breaking book.
“Striner makes the case for recapturing the nation’s sovereign right to issue its money and benefit from the gain thereof — a starting point for important new developments in monetary and public policy.”
–pre-publication endorsement by Joseph Huber, Professor of Economic Sociology, Martin Luther University, Halle, Germany
“Richard Striner’s thought-provoking book on pure money reminds us that the federal government can rebuild our nation’s declining infrastructure and restore broad-based and sustainable prosperity, but first it must reclaim the sovereign power to issue its own currency.”
