Monetary Realism

‘Those unaware are unaware of being unaware.’
By Merrill M. E. Jenkins, Sr., M.R. (1919–1979)

This website deals with one of the most — if not the most — important issue we face as a civilized people: Money.

Many of these publications (especially those by Merrill Jenkins, Amos Bruce, and Dave Wilber) as originally published were typographical disasters. Subsequent scanning has not done the typesetting — or the content, for that matter — any favors. You can find scraps here and there around the web, not all of them formatted very well. I’m in the process of cleaning up the formatting a bit, and making them available here because every American should read and understand the Monetary Realists’ position.
