Register for the Sound Money Project Conference, April 1, 2011 in Dallas, TX
The Atlas Economic Research Foundation and FreedomWorks Foundation hosted a panel discussion on “Sound Money and America’s Global Economic Leadership” on Tuesday, December 7, 2010, at the Capitol Visitors Center (Room SVC 203-02), from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
This event also coincides with the official launch of the publication, A Guide to Sound Money, an educational pamphlet being made available through the joint support of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation and FreedomWorks. Its author, Judy Shelton, is a prominent economist who predicted the downfall of the Soviet empire, authored Money Meltdown, and is the Co-Director of Atlas’s Sound Money Project.
The Guide does not advocate any single approach to achieving sound money. Instead, it lays out core principles to define the fundamental purposes of money and to acknowledge the intent of the Founders in granting money powers to Congress. The entire Guide can be accessed in pdf form at Atlas’s Sound Money Project website. Printed copies will be made available at the event.
