Inflation and the Savior State

Uncle Gary North writes a superb piece on the history of money in the Roman Empire and how the deterioration of one was intertwined with the deterioration of the other.


I have ordered the book mentioned, Christ and the Caesars, from Mr Amazon, and I can't wait to read it.

I must say, the Northster really knows how to get me to read an article. Add a dash of Austrianism, a hint of Roman Empire, a smattering of gold coinage, a cornucopia of Latin, a touch of Byzantine empire, a cacophony of barbarism, and a fall of empire, and I'm as happy as Koala in a Eucalyptus tree.
