The Secret to Restoring the American Dream | George Gilder | Audio
Posted: Wed. June 22, 2016, 3:54pm PT

George Gilder, a founding member of the Board of Advisors for the Independent Institute, discussed his latest book The Scandal of Money: Why Wall Street Recovers but the Economy Never Does on June 7, 2016.

Can the American jobs machine ever be restarted? Can parents once again have confidence that their children will enjoy a standard of living higher than their own? Yes! The secret to putting the U.S. back on the path to widespread prosperity, according to Gilder, is to eliminate the economic booms and busts that have crushed the middle class and working people alike.

Sr. VP Mary Theroux interviewed on California's Maximum Grant Welfare Law
Posted: Thu. June 16, 2016, 11:50am PT

Independent Institute Sr. Vice President Mary Theroux was interviewed on KSRO radio in Santa Rosa, California about the state's repeal of the so-called maximum family grant policy which prohibits people from receiving increased welfare income if they have more children while receiving public assistance. Theroux argues that the cycle of poverty is reinforced due to limiting entrepreneurship and by creating barriers to job training for low-income Californians. Instead of the state throwing money at the problem, a culture shift is needed to help welfare recipients make better decisions which include business and job opportunities.

The Secret to Restoring the American Dream | George Gilder
Posted: Wed. June 15, 2016, 7:44am PT

George Gilder, a founding member of the Board of Advisors for the Independent Institute, discussed his latest book The Scandal of Money: Why Wall Street Recovers but the Economy Never Does on June 7, 2016.

Can the American jobs machine ever be restarted? Can parents once again have confidence that their children will enjoy a standard of living higher than their own? Yes! The secret to putting the U.S. back on the path to widespread prosperity, according to Gilder, is to eliminate the economic booms and busts that have crushed the middle class and working people alike.

Drawing on his new book, The Scandal of Money, Gilder will explain why America needs a monetary system free of government monopoly and the manipulations of a central bank—a system in which gold-based money and blockchain technology can work in concert to fulfill the amazing potential of the information economy and make good on the promise of the American dream.
