The Ethics of Money Production
by Jorg Guido Hulsmann
Publisher: Ludwig von Mises Institute 2008

The thesis is that a government monopoly on money production and management has no ethical or economic grounding at all. Legal tender laws, bailout guarantees, tax-backed deposit insurance, and the entire apparatus that sustains national monetary systems, has been wholly unjustified.
