America’s Economic Meltdown—coming soon to a city near you!
The John Birch Society sets up 40 city tour covering 21 states to present overview, solutions to America’s economic meltdown
APPLETON, WIS. — January 21, 2009 — As the federal government continues to deal with the recession by enacting a variety of interventions, The John Birch Society will offer a counter-perspective on and solutions to the economic crisis.
“America’s Economic Meltdown” will be presented by John McManus, Publisher of The New American magazine and JBS President. His hour-long speech in will be delivered in 40 cities in 21 states, starting in early February. The events are open to the public.
McManus will provide in-depth discussion of money, inflation, the Federal Reserve and the advantages of sound currency. The New American has reported that the stimulus price tag nears $2 trillion, given the bailouts, tax rebate and the upcoming stimulus bill, which will only worsen the problem. The money to pay for this will either be printed (inflation) or borrowed, most likely from China. The result of this fiscal irresponsibility will be a declining dollar, a mountain of indebtedness, and the potential for a loss of national independence. “This is not something we should leave for our children or ourselves,” says McManus. “Let’s get government under control, learn from history, return to sound currency, and pay off the nation’s debts.”
The New American has pointed out that government interventionism continues to prolong and deepen the recession by preventing bad investments from being liquidated, insolvent companies are kept afloat and investments continue to be misappropriated. Instead of attacking the root cause of the problem — government that is too big and too expensive — the bailouts and stimulus packages are only compounding it.
An early version of “America’s Economic Meltdown” is available in McManus’ DVD presentation, “Dollars & $ense.” Copies of the DVD will be available at the event. The tour begins February 10 and goes through late June. A tentative schedule is posted online with local contact information.
