John F. McManusBook John McManus today for your next event.  His new presentation, “Dollars & $ense,” explains how to avoid the booms and busts of economic turmoil through sound currency.  

“Americans seeking solutions to the current economic crisis should be looking to the U.S. Constitution,” says Mr. McManus.  “In my lifetime, the U.S. has gone from the greatest creditor nation with the most respected currency to the greatest debtor nation with an increasingly shunned currency. That should be unacceptable to the American people.”

His presentation discusses in clear terms such topics as money and inflation, free market economics, and sound currency.  He’ll also teach audiences how the U.S. can go about establishing sound currency, including allowing competing currencies and abolishing the Federal Reserve.

Preview his presentation by watching a taped presentation posted on YouTube.

DVDs are available for sale with discounts for bulk purchases to sell at your event.

Wilton AlstonWilton Alston is a principal research scientist working in the field of transportation safety, specifically with regard to trains and transit. A libertarian activist and writer, Mr. Alston’s columns have appeared in such places as LewRockwell.com, Strike-the-Root.com and around the Internet blogosphere.

Mr. Alston prides himself on applying libertarian legal analysis and ethics to a wide range of interesting topics, analyzing them in a manner that interests not only the doctrinaire thinker, but also the layman. 

He’s penned columns with titles such as: “Where Have All the Black Libertarians Gone?”  “Why Is Pat Tillman Dead?” “Why Is There A War on Drugs?” “Who Killed Ted Westhusing?” “Does High-Fructose Corn Syrup Have to Be In Everything “Tell Me Again Why You’re a Libertarian?”

While he could generally be described as a libertarian, a more appropriate and more accurate designation, Alston says, would be anarcho-capitalist.                           

As such, his well-reasoned views include:

• The most peaceful society is the one that lives under anarchy, not a forcible state.
• The most basic expression and most fundamental dogma in libertarian theory is the non-aggression axiom – the initiation  of force is never justified.
• The mainstream political parties are inherently similar, barely avoiding being identical; therefore, spending any time debating about them is time wasted.
• The best means by which to right past wrongs are private, not via legislation.

Wilt Alston lives in Rochester, NY, with his wife and three children.
