The Rat Cap Podcast: Episode 10

The Rat Cap Podcast: Inflation Everywhere, The History of Money and Banking and the Road to Ruin, Part 3 (libsyn.com)

Wampum, Wildcats, and Inflation, The History of the Monetary System and the Road to Ruin, Part 2 (libsyn.com)

The structure of the modern banking system is the product of hundreds of years of bad legal and economic theory that is leading us to disaster.  In Part 2 of this podcast, I discuss the early history of colonial and European banking practices which helped set us on the path to monetary catastrophe.
