Wall Street, Banks, and American Foreign Policy

Availability: Ready to download

This firey monograph shows a side of Murray Rothbard not seen in his theoretical treatise: his ability to employ "power elite" analysis to understand the relationship between money, power, and war. Rather than allow the left to dominate this approach to history, Rothbard shows how wealthy elites are only able to manipulate world affairs via their connection to state power.

Rather than allow the left to dominate this approach to history, Rothbard shows how wealthy elites are only able to manipulate world affairs via their connection to state power. Those mainstream historians might deride Rothbard's history as a "conspiracy" approach, Rothbard himself is only out to show that world affairs are not random historical forces but the consequence of choices and paths chosen by real human beings. The contents of this volume include: Wall Street, Banks, and American Foreign Policy Appendix I: The Treaty that Wall Street Wrote Appendix II: Who's Who for the Canal Treaty Afterword ASIN B0006QGUJS 100 pp. (pb)

    Good. Heavy on listing who is connected with whom (So and so was a board member of J.P. Morgan and also a key member of Eisenhower administration). That get's boring. Nonetheless, Rothbard's work shows that the banking interests have always been at work in U.S. foreign policy. Think of American foreign policy as a white styrofoam plate and J.P. Morgan Chase, the Trilateral Commission, and the Council of Foreign Relations as little kids each with their own plate. Now imagine these kids with paint Good.

Now imagine these kids with paint on their hands and then being asked to make a picture of foreign policy on the plate. As soon as the teacher says "go," they all begin swirling their hands on the plates, making foreign policy. Yeah, history was kind of like that.

    Let me say first that this book is free at Mises.org, and I read it as part of a class on Murray Rothbard at Mises Academy. Half of this book is about the influence that the bankers have had on the politics and foreign policy of our nation. the other half is simply list of the numerous government officials who were connected with the banking and financial industry. Although it's not the most enjoyable read, it is eye opening. If simply the working history of everyone mentioned in the book is tru Let me say first that this book is free at Mises.org, and I read it as part of a class on Murray Rothbard at Mises Academy.

    Anyone interested in the interlocking of corporatism, politics, and war profiteering in post Civil War America would benefit from this brief but trenchant book. It takes the reader through the mid 1980s, so does not include Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, etc. but things haven't changed. Each generation of evil and corrupt men in high places is replaced by a new one.

    A who’s who of the most powerful “American Interests” of the last 150 years. This essay is simply a quick overview, but very interesting nonetheless.

    Documents relations between bankers and politicians right up to the Reagan administration. Reducing everything to just the scheming role of psycho-greedy banking interests acting in the shadows is necessary for Rothbards explanatory framework for why the "free market" has never worked exactly right. Private interests capturing public policy for their own ends is problematic but Rothbards and what free market think tanks are pushing ain't any better.

    Very informative regarding the connections politicians and other individuals in power have to banks and other institutions.

    The introduction by Anthony Gregory in the 2011 version is worth the .pdf download alone.
