In an extended interview on Capital Account, Laissez-Faire Books executive editor Jeffrey Tucker explains why the digital world is innovative, service minded, and growing, whereas so many parts of the physical world ruled by government are decrepit and dying. He also covers the threat of government regulation of the Internet, the problems introduced by the declining quality of money, the case against antitrust regulation, and the central plan that overrides the wishes of consumers in favor of the interests of the political class.

A most excellent interview; I enjoyed the whole thing even thought the young lady was a little too bubbly. You did good.
Heinlein’s character, Lazarus Long, said it some forty years ago: “Government does not exist for the benefit of the governed.”

“We call the IRS Regulations a “Code,” because a “Code” is a language always written in such a way that those who do not know the encryption and special meanings of the words, such as “Label”, cannot figure it out in a hundred years…” Pardon Me, but… #5 (Nord Davis. Jr.)
The District of Columbia (The District) has created adhesion contracts (i.e. birth certificate, drivers license, voter registration, 1040), and has kept their true purpose a secret. All paper created by “The District” are contracts, they NEED a signature, this makes the signer “liable’ for “The District” debt.
These “hidden” contracts are what make you “subject to” “The District’ rules and regulations as YOU just signed and made yourself surety http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surety.
The Federal Reserve is an unconstitutional private company that our public servants (1913) put in charge of creating the country’s currency. The bankers got paid in gold, the public servants got the paper to spend and now didn’t have to go directly to the people.
When the public servants ran out of gold they started using (and continue to use) “We the People” as collateral. (Research!!).
The elected officials continue to allow the FED to exist. It makes it easier for them to spend other peoples’ money without being accountable.
The collection arm of this private company (Federal Reserve) is the IRS. What, you think the bankers would trust the public servants with collection?
The politicians will NEVER End the Fed! It is their sanctioned creation and useful cover. So what to do?
Educate Yourself. Stop the transfusion, and DEFUND “The District”.
Know the difference between “lawful” and “legal”. A population cannot be “ignorant and free”.
The legal definitions of ‘sui juris’, ‘propria persona’, and “pro se”, and what Contracts you have unwittingly signed.
The sovereign States created the Federal District via the Constitution. Since the War and Emergency Powers Act of 1933 suspended the Constitution (Research!!)
http://www.barefootsworld.net/war_ep.html – the states gave “The District” (the created) power over the States (the creator). The States have never reclaimed their sovereignty. http://www.allgov.com/Controversies/ViewNews/Illinois_Tries_to_Opt_Out_of_Federal_Deportation_Program_110511
Know who you are “at Law”, that Contract Law is the ONLY law of the courts and get out from under “The District”.
"There are two sides to every coin," as the saying goes. And nowhere is that phrase more apt than in matters of money, especially as regards the U.S. Federal Reserve.

As long as markets exist, there will people who try to predict where they are headed. Of course, no one can know for sure. And as Greg Guenthner explains, their prognostications can sometimes do more harm than good. Read on...
A massive storm recently blanketed the U.S. northeast. And as it did, most people ran to their thermostats to keep warm. But staying warm and cozy this winter comes at a price, even with the U.S. nat gas boom in full swing. Today, Matt Insley explains why, when it comes to nat gas prices, seasonality definitely matters. Read on...
Like it or not, size does matter. But contrary to a popular saying, bigger is not always better. Especially when it comes to the size of the state. Marc Faber explains why a world of smaller states might function better than one dominated by excessively large "superpowers." Read on...
Pope Francis recently warned people to beware the "tyranny" of capitalism. Hmmm... Would that be true capitalism and trust in free enterprise? Or the crony capitalism we're currently saddled with? Bill Bonner explains why, even though capitalism is easily corrupted by the capitalists, that doesn't necessarily mean it is a bum creed. Read on...
The average postwar U.S. expansion has lasted 58 months. In the midst of major policy dislocation in Congress and at the Fed, we are at month 52 of the current expansion, which began in June 2009. But we are running out of time – and luck.
