  • The Monetary Breakdown of the West
    A 1980 article by Murray Rothbard that briefly traces the International Monetary system from its Gold Standard days in the 1800s to the collapse of the Bretton-Woods system in the 1970s. As an Austrian economist, Rothbard advocates a return to a gold standard. However, this view predates the success of the US FED to control inflation since 1982.
