What Bitcoin Can Teach Us

What Bitcoin Can Teach Us By George Gilder The great Austrian economist Friedrich Hayek said it best: “The root and source of all monetary evil is government control of money.” Ironically, most fully developed by free market economist Milton Freedman, monetarism has become the source and root of the current evils of the world economy–runaway debt, widespread stagnation and the revival of socialism.
