The Sound Money Project of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation is proud to announce the release of its newest publication, Roads to Sound Money. The project is a compilation of essays featuring some of the most visionary, yet practical thinkers on monetary policy from Atlas’s network. The essays range from reforming the fed, reinstating a gold standard as well as alternative monetary systems. The book was first presented to attendees of Atlas’ Liberty Forum in New York on October 3-4. Authors Jerry Jordan and Sean Fieler participated on a panel on the book during the event and presented their views on the matter. We now invite you to learn more about the book and discover the reforms that these authors suggest would put us on the path of sound money.
