Sadly, Few Econ Students Ever Read Material Like This

George Leef

The new issue of Intercollegiate Review features an excellent essay by Professor Christopher Westley of Jacksonville State University on American monetary history. Actually, it goes back much earlier -- to the beginning of coinage. Anyone who is teaching about our economic history might consider this essay as supplemental material. Westley, an Auburn grad, is not friendly toward the politicization of money and credit.
