We are facing a monetary crisis of astronomical proportions. Government debt is skyrocketing. Currencies are collapsing. Banks are going broke. Businesses are folding. Families are struggling. We’ve been stranded, sitting on top of a mountain of IOUs that will never be paid off.
The preceding paragraph was written in 1986. If you believe the financial situation has only gotten better since then, you can probably stop reading now.
The economy will inevitably be THE hot-button issue that will dominate the political rhetoric leading up to the 2012 presidential election. Democrats blame Republicans, Republicans blame Democrats, Independents agree with both of them. Finger pointing has not worked so far, and there is no reason to think it will ever work.
In fact, it matters little who is to blame. Assigning responsibility for the state of the child’s messy room does nothing toward actually getting it clean. An understanding about what constitutes sound fiscal policy is needed in order to get our financial affairs in order. Until we stop spending truckloads of money that we don’t have, we can forget about making a dent in the debt. We need a lesson in HONEST MONEY.
Written by Dr. Gary North 25 years ago, HONEST MONEY has become a classic in basic economics. However, time has not made the lessons of HONEST MONEY any less important; if anything, it has made them more important. Like all truth, the principles taught in HONEST MONEY are relevant and needed for the simple reason that they are true. Truth does not change, nor does it ever become unnecessary.
We are in a $15 trillion abyss of debt because we have avoided monetary truth, not because we have abided by it. We have pretended as though the basic truths that rule our individual and family economic affairs do not apply to local, state, and federal governments. We have sown wind and we are reaping the whirlwind. HONEST MONEY shows the way back to planting seeds.
For a limited time, we are offering HONEST MONEY to you as a free download. Read it, read it again, and then teach it to your children and grandchildren. Every day that we wait we allow another $4 billion to be added to the national debt. Until individual Americans get their own financial molehills in order, we cannot begin to focus on the mountain of IOUs residing at our nation’s capital. Get your free download of HONEST MONEY, and encourage your friends and family to do the same. Make a change and make a difference today.
