With prices of gasoline, food, healthcare, automobiles, and other essentials rising across the board, U.S. officials and the mainstream press are playing the standard blame game — that rising prices are the fault of greedy business owners.
In actuality, there is one — and only one — cause of inflation–the Federal Reserve. To pay off the ever-increasing debt that federal officials have incurred to fund their massive welfare-state and warfare-state programs, the Fed has debased our currency for decades through inflationary expansion of the money supply.
Join us every Monday beginning October 3, 2022 for our new online conference “End Inflation and the Fed,” for a great series of lectures on the spending, debit, and inflation crisis facing our nation and what we need to do to restore sound money to our land.

He is also the editor of the three-volume, Selected Writings of Ludwig von Mises (Liberty Fund, 2000, 2002, 2012), the co-editor of When We Are Free (Northwood University Press, 2014), an anthology of essays devoted to the moral, political and economic principles of the free society, and co-author of the five-volume, In Defense of Capitalism (Northwood University Press, 2010-2014).
Prior to his appointment at The Citadel, Dr. Ebeling was professor of economics at Northwood University in Midland, Michigan (2009-2014). He served as president of the Foundation for Economic Education (2003-2008), was the Ludwig von Mises Professor of Economics at Hillside College in Hillsdale, Michigan (1988-2003), and Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Dallas in Texas (1984-1988).
Dr. Ebeling served as president of the Society for the Development of Austrian Economics in 2020.
Murray Sabrin arrived in America from West Germany with his parents and older brother on August 6, 1949. His parents were the only members of their respective families to survive the Holocaust.
In 1959 at age 12, Sabrin became a U.S. citizen and graduated from the Bronx High School of Science in 1964. He has a B.A. in history, geography and social studies education from Hunter College, an M.A. in social studies education from Lehman College and a Ph.D. in economic geography from Rutgers University.
Dr. Sabrin joined the faculty of Ramapo College of New Jersey in 1985 and retired on July 1, 2020, where he was Professor of Finance in the Anisfield School of Business. He taught Financial History of the US among other courses. In 2007 he and his wife, Florence, made a gift to Ramapo College to establish the Sabrin Center for Free Enterprise in the Anisfield School of Business. In January 2021, the Board of Trustees awarded Dr. Sabrin Emeritus status for his scholarly contributions during his 35-year career at Ramapo College.
Sabrin is the author of Tax Free 2000: The Rebirth of American Liberty, a blueprint on how to create a tax-free America in the 21 st century, and Why the Federal Reserve Sucks: It Causes, Inflation, Recessions, Bubbles and Enriches the One Percent, which is available on Amazon. His two latest books were published in 2021, Universal Medical Care from Conception to End of Life: The Case for a Single-Payer System. The single payer system, in Sabrin’s proposal, is the individual or family, not the government. Sabrin’s other book, Navigating the Boom/Bust Cycle: An Entrepreneur’s Survival Guide, was published last October.
Keving Dowd is a professor of finance and economics at Durham University.
His interests include financial economics, monetary economics, macroeconomics and political economy. More specifically, I am interested in central banking and financial regulation, free banking and private money, financial risk management, pensions/PensionMetrics, mortality and longevity risk, Brexit, equity release and the War on Cash.
His work is heavily influenced by Austrian and Public Choice economics. An underlying theme of his work is the importance of institutional arrangements, respect for individual rights and the rule of law, and skepticism about policies that rely on the wisdom of policymakers or their ability to forecast the future.
He contributes regularly to the The Eumaeus Project, a blog site that provides commentary on financial regulatory issues, banking, the life insurance industry and equity release.
