“A Century of the Central Bank”
The Federal Reserve, the central bank of the United States, was established in late 1913 marking this year its 100th anniversary. Coming on the heels of the 1907 financial panic, the Fed was supposed to tame the wildcat free market. Acting as a lender of last resort, the Fed was supposed to deliver a less volatile, more consistent growth.
Did the Fed deliver on this promise? History speaks for itself. Both the Great Depression and our current "Great Recession" occurred on the Fed's watch.
Beyond the macro instability, the Fed has destroyed the value of the dollar, which has lost more than 95 percent of its purchasing power since 1913. In addition, the Fed acts as the Treasury’s banker, absorbing whatever debt Uncle Sam can’t foist off on the public. The obvious result: an explosion in the size and scope of the federal government, through its programs of domestic welfare programs and foreign warfare.
Is all hope lost? What can the individual family or small business owner do in this environment? Come to the Night of Clarity to learn the problem—and solutions—from some of the country’s top scholars and speakers.
Friday, August 23, 1pm – 6:45pm at the Downtown Sheraton
Come hear some of the nation’s foremost authorities diagnose the nation’s economic crisis, from the perspective of “Austrian economics.” The all-star lineup features Nashville businessman and financial author L. Carlos Lara; the president of the Foundation for Economic Education, Larry Reed; economist Robert P. Murphy; founder of the Infinite Banking Concept, R. Nelson Nash; historian and NYT bestselling author, Thomas Woods; and headlined by former Congressman Dr. Ron Paul.
Friday, August 23, 1pm – 9:00pm and Saturday August 24, 9am – 4pm at the Downtown Sheraton
In addition to the all-star lectures on Friday afternoon, Package Two provides for a VIP cocktail hour and dinner on Friday evening, culminating in an intimate Q&A with Dr. Ron Paul. After diagnosing the problem on Friday, participants will learn the solution during the Saturday workshop. Nelson Nash will explain his Infinite Banking Concept (IBC), a method of cash flow management through which an individual can effectively self-finance life’s major purchases. By freeing Americans from their dependence on traditional lenders, the IBC approach allows them to “secede” from the Federal Reserve / Wall Street nexus. Other experts will explain the mechanics of IBC from an economic, actuarial, and financial planning perspective, will show applications for small business owners, and will address popular misunderstandings of the concept. The Saturday workshop is suitable for the general public, financial professionals who wish to sharpen their command of the subject, and is ideal for clients who have been introduced to the idea but want to learn more.
