Money and the Constitution
From The Federalist Society:
R Street Fellow Alex Pollock appears at 1:06.
Money. We all use it, for exchange, for store of value, for identifying prices, and many other purposes and exercises. In the United States, and under our Constitution, what is money, how is it created, what is its value, who gets to decide, and to whom are such decision-makers accountable? Is it an instrument of freedom, or a tool of government policy to affect that freedom? These questions, which touch all of us, will be the topic of discussion of our panelists.
