Steve Forbes called Who Needs the Fed?, the new book by Reason Foundation's John Tamny, "one of the most enormously—and positively—influential treatises of our time." Anthony Scaramucci, the host of Wall Street Week, said that it will "force you to see the world in a new way."
Who Needs the Fed?: What Taylor Swift, Uber and Robots Tell Us About Money, Credit, and Why We Should Abolish America's Central Bank has received terrific reviews—and now you can sit down with John Tamny and hear his take on why the core functions of the Federal Reserve system are best met by markets rather than through government meddling.
Please join Tamny for drinks and hors d'oeuvres this coming Thursday in downtown Seattle:
Date/Time: Thursday, August 18 from 6:30—8:30 p.m.
Place: Maximilien, Pike Place Market of Seattle, on main floor between Don and Joe's Meat and the Market Spice shop.
RSVP: The event is free and open to the public, but RSVP to Mary Toledo at 310-391-2245 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, August 15.
Tamny is Reason Foundation's Senior Fellow in Economics, the political economy editor at Forbes, and editor of RealClearMarkets.com. He writes frequently about the securities markets as well as tax, trade, and monetary policy issues. His articles have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Investor's Business Daily, Financial Times, National Review and London's Daily Telegraph.
Here's a Reason TV interview with Tamny discussing his previous book Popular Economics: What the Rolling Stones, Downton Abbey, and LeBron James Can Teach You about Economics.
