The Silver Saga

The incredible collapse of value of silver in the 19th century — don't blame Comstock!



The silver standard did not die a natural death.

  • It was deliberately killed.
  • A proper search for the assassins was never carried out.
  • There was never a post-mortem.

In this paper we focus on the conspiracy as it might have unfolded between the two dates:

  • April 9, 1865 (the day General Lee of the Confederacy surrendered at Appomattox to General Grant of the Union marking the end of the War Between the States) and
  • January 1, 1879 (Resumption Day, when payment of the victorious Union’s currency, the greenback was resumed in gold specie — but not in silver).
All Wars Are Bankers' Wars!

I know many people have a great deal of difficulty comprehending just how many wars are started for no other purpose than to force private central banks onto nations, so let me share a few examples, so that you understand why the US Government is mired in so many wars against so many foreign nations. There is ample precedent for this.

Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits.
– Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain

Murphy published a piece on the webpage of the Von Mises Institute responding to some points I made in a recent interview on Naked Capitalism, where I mentioned that the standard economic accounts of the emergence of money from barter appears to be wildly wrong. Since this contradicted a position taken by one of...
