Since Nixon closed the gold window in 1971-essentially ending sound money and ushering in "elastic money"-we have seen an accelerated deterioration of our society as a whole. Fear, greed and apathy are the new normal instead of vices to avoid. Buying and selling of favors has replaced moral fortitude and personal responsibilityThis book will explore the nexus between Money, Morals and the Machine. We shaped the machine, and it has debased our money and morals. Our challenge now is to undo this by exposing the Machine for what it truly is and how it came to be so all-consuming, describing how it survives today and, most importantly, how to stop it-and bring honesty, integrity and morality back to America.
