From the Author
The U.S. Dollar is a paper currency. It is conjured from nothing and backed by nothing - and yet it is the reserve currency of the world.
History teaches that all paper currencies die. And as a paper currency, the Dollar will also die. But what does this mean, for each of us, and for the world? This is the question that has yet to be answered; for not in recorded history has the world ever experienced the death of the world's reserve currency!
This is the story of the Dollar's death. It's about the real world - the real world of banking and how it affects each of us in our daily lives. Unfortunately, the real world does not always lend itself to a simple plotline - and so this story is necessarily epic in scope.
The story has so far remained untold, and for several reasons:
· It pulls disparate subplots and events from a cross section of society, weaving them into a coherent whole. Most people may be aware of specific events from their own knowledge and experience; but may not tie in events from other (unseen) places.
· The story is about money and bankers. It is an arcane subject and considered by many to be either complex or boring.
· But the biggest reason this has not yet been told is that, with any war, the winners write the history books. And make no mistake. We are in a war - a war that's been fought nonstop for centuries. It is a war not just for power, or control, or territory . . . it is a war for humanity's soul. And so far, the bankers have been the 'winners'.
The story faithfully represents the events of history, while showing how the players (using fictional characters) may have created and/or dealt with these events. For example, circa 1650AD, the King of England really did confiscate personal wealth held by the Mint. Closer to home, JFK did indeed order the U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam; and the U.S. Congress did indeed hold a closed session (circa March, 2008) where they talked about the destruction of the U.S. economy and how they would save themselves and their families. Further, the events surrounding the Liberty Dollar are a matter of recent history, and are shown by the various press releases contained herein.
Many books on money have been published. But they've generally recounted concepts and events in a sterile fashion. But what about the people? What about those who fought, lived, triumphed, and perished? . . . this is their story.

More About the Author
Thirty-some years ago, I listened to a lecture in ECON-201 - Macro-economics. The Instructor discussed the money supply, the multiplier effect of additional money, and the multiplier effect of an increase/decrease in the velocity of money ('multiplier' is a measure of increased economic activity due to an increase in the money supply and/or (money) velocity - that is, how fast money changes hands). The Instructor mentioned in passing the notion of money creation - and he spent, maybe, 30 SECONDS DESCRIBING HOW MONEY WAS CREATED!
I distinctly remember this moment, because I did a double take. Yet it was not until later, after several years of studying economics and markets, that I actually dug deeper into the theory of money. And the more I studied, the more certain I became that our monetary system is deeply flawed and inherently corrupt. I also became convinced that our system of money was at the core of our economic issues - in short, the ability to conjure money from nothing lends itself to all sorts of corruption and distortion in the markets, the economy, and in government.
What you see here, in my books, is a passion that has developed within me over the years of my research. My intention is to present issues on money within a framework of reality and history. I believe our system of money is at the root of the death of our country, if not all of western civilization.
I hope you find my books useful and interesting, and I thank you very much for visiting my profile.

The author tells tales of people and events, tying them together in a way that brings home the plight we're in. His characters - some are evil and vicious, while others are heroic - all feel real to me. Their individual stories provide a depth that is far greater than mere facts about money and economics. I feel for some of the characters, while others I can find only disgust.
With this book I learned some important lessons about money, and about power and control. For these reasons alone, this book will go down as an important contribution to our culture. This is a big statement, I know. Yet I believe this is true.
This story is important, and I whole-heartily recommend it.
I'm a little saddened because when you discover a great book; you can't put it down and the joy is soon over BECAUSE YOU'VE FINISHED. I read both books in three days.
I really enjoyed filling in the REAL life names of individuals and institutions.
I marveled at how past brief obscure one paragraph business news items were mentioned and their significance was woven into the story.
If the fictional names were changed for real names; you'd think that you were reading a HISTORY that some time traveler had brought back to you from the future.
Be sure to read BOTH books.
