Let me tell you about a wonderful emergency.
Ron Paul, as you know, has been part of the Mises Institute since the very beginning. A few months ago, he suggested a book idea to me: the most important of his economic writings and speeches over the years, collected in one volume. Well, I hold the page proofs in my hands of a 470-pp. book that can help change America: Pillars of Prosperity: Free Markets, Honest Money, Private Property.
As you know, Ron–like freedom–is popular. This work, which makes the case for Austrian economics, laissez-faire, the gold standard, free trade, the abolition of agencies from the Fed to the IRS, dramatic spending cuts, and many other of our ideas–and against the economic myths and lies that permeate government and the media–can have a huge effect. His many followers will read it and be influenced by it. It will be news in the media too. It even makes a good reader in economics courses. And it shows his farsightedness in warning against such federal disasters as the mortgage and banking crisis.
This book will be a huge step forward for our ideas. But to get it out fast and massively, to take advantage of the present moment, we need some help. We must strike while the iron is hot.
If you could help with a gift of $2,500 or more, we would be delighted to list you in the book as a patron. A contribution of any amount would be wonderful, of course. Here is the link to the donate form. But we would need to hear from you before year-end. What a moment this is for our ideas. Please help make it all happen!
