About the Author

Rodger Malcolm Mitchell is a business turnaround specialist. Using the non-intuitive methods describes in FREE MONEY, he predicted the economic boom. Then he was able to predict the most recent recession, because he knew what specific events would cause it. He predicted the Greenspan interest rate cuts' repeated failure to stimulate the economy. He predicted our current recovery and what will end it. He predicted the interest rate increases, and their failure to cool the economy. FREE MONEY will help readers invest more wisely and profitably.

Since 1971 the US is off the gold standard. This means that a growing economy cannot be thrown into depression just because there is not enough gold to back the growing stock of money required to sustain it. It is enough now to create the money out of nothing. And this is done, the quantity of money created is known as the "federal debt", and it is completely unlike a household or corporate debt, which is a real financial burden. Debt cannot be a burden to an entity that creates money.

Unfortunately, 99% of economists, Nobel laureates including, of all persuasions: neoliberal, Keynesian, Austrian, have not caught up to the simple fact that the monetary system is nothing like the gold standard that ruled when the textbooks they learned about money from were written. The erroneous set of beliefs and dogmas (eg. "federal debt is like a household debt") is perpetuated. A small group of economists, known as chartalists or MMT-ers (after Modern Monetary Theory) have figured out the fiat (non gold-related) money. The author of the book is not among them, he discovered this by himself, a true genius. His book is definitely recommended, if you want to understand why some countries go bankrupt and others can run 200% debt-to-GDP ratio and manage to sell massive amounts of bonds despite offering near zero interest.

If you read this book you will see how confused the most famous economists are, how their thinking is muddled by false analogies and unspoken, yet absurd, assumptions.

Obviously, I think it is worth it.

Every once in a while, you find a book that changes your view of the world. FREE MONEY showed me why the common knowledge about the economy is completely wrong. It showed me how to predict the stock market, which I've done successfully for the past 5 years, using the simple method described.
It showed me why we had the recession and the recovery. It showed me why Chairman Greenspan's mistakes were largely responsible for the recession, and how close we were to a depression.
It showed me solutions to the Social Security and Medicare problems.
In short, this is one of the most important books I ever have read, and it made a lot of money for me, too.

FREE MONEY is one of the best non-fiction books I have read. It's logical and easy reading, and it challenges every notion I've had about our economy. I now understand what has happened in the stock market, and more importantly, what will happen. A terrific book!

An excellent book. Shows how to lower taxes and at the same time, support Social Security (as well as Medicare, the military, crime prevention.) Has dozens of ideas you never see in the media. No gobble-de-gook. Very easy reading. It's counter-intuitive but logical. If you want a fresh view of what has happened in our economy and what will happen, this is the book for you.

Fresh perspective on what money is all about. And maybe the real answer to the financial mess the world is in now. A must read.

Rodger Malcolm Mitchell offers a perspective on the economy and government spending that challenges everything we have been lead to believe about the economy, US debt, deficits and federal government spending. He backs up his perspective with empirical evidence and seeks inputs from those with opposing views. The analysis gives us something to think about when we, as citizens, proclaim to want balanced budgets and lower government spending.

I recommend this book for anyone who wants something more than the traditional and cliche arguments and proposals coming out of DC and the financial media.
