I have heard Mr. Spivack speak, and he is a brilliant man. If you want to learn more about our monetary system and economics, please plan to attend this free seminar next week. Another local group is hosting this seminar and have invited us to attend. You all know who he is. He was the merchant who was closed down for selling Conservative books, t-shirts, and bumper stickers in the Concord Mills Mall. Remember that scandal? You won’t want to miss this.

Subject: LOREN SPIVACK FROM FREE MARKET WARRIOR WILL BE HAVING A 2-DAY SEMINAR Free to the Public
I am Stephanie from the Foothills 912 Project in Hickory and wanted to pass this along information that would be important to all of our groups.
Please check out our site for more details or questions.
Loren Spivack from Free Market warrior will be having a 2-day seminar at 1218 Fairgrove Church Road (Hickory Church of Christ) June 14th & 15th at 6pm.
the first night will be about what money is and where value comes from, and the second night will be about money’s application to issues, ie education, health care, race relations, environment…how money affects the world we live in. We invite all to come and enjoy, and bring friends!!!
Tonight, June 9th, he spoke to our 9/12 Foothills Project Group at Hickory Dickory Dock about how important our movement of freedom is to change the direction of the past 100 years. He said that in the 1920’s, government received less than 1 percent of GNP, and it is now 33% through some form of tax.
I asked him at what point will the US be “officially” bankrupt. He said that we can go on “unofficially” bankrupt in many ways. He said that the point at which we can no longer sell treasuries, where we have skyrocketing interest rates where every penny will not pay off interest, is the point where things will be crashing fast. And most interestingly, no one really knows what that will mean, since there will be no one to bail us out.
He said that the definition of economics is how human beings interact to get things done. Capitalism has rules based on nature of being human, he said, and today’s economics were disproved 150 years ago by John Maynard Keynes. Today’s economics are coming from university professors who may have interesting theories, but according to his favorite economist Thomas Sowell, professors in a university live in a world in which those interesting ideas do not have to work. Same with Congress; you would have to believe that government people are smarter than everyone else, and uncorruptible.
Please come join us June 14th and 15th, 6pm to hear Loren speak.
Thank you, Stephanie and Foothills912!!
