John Zube's Bibliography on Monetary Freedom
This is another gigantic undertaking of John Zube. Monetary freedom has been top of his list of interests and efforts for long time. And this is because, without monetary freedom, we are condemned to be forever the servants of the state, to be squeezed and bankrupted according to the whims and necessities of the state rulers.

TOWARDS FULLY FREE BANKING,
MONETARY & FINANCIAL FREEDOM
A BIBLIOGRAPHIC COMPILATION
Listing also most of the LMP titles readily available on microfiche, other titles in print or out of print, available online or discs or via email attachments, titles in my private collection, titles I have heard or read about and would like to check out, titles I have long been looking for and titles listed by other monetary freedom writers and website providers.
Placed in the Open Domain, with the standing invitation to anyone interested, to help complete and correct it!
THOUSANDS OF OTHER TITLES OUGHT STILL TO BE ADDED
BUT NOT NECESSARILY ALL BY MYSELF!
By John Zube, February to July 2010
“Die monetäre Emanzipation ist die wichtigste von allen, aber nur von sehr wenigen Sozialreformern ernstlich erwogen worden.” - Ulrich von Beckerath, 1882-1969.
(Monetary emancipation is the most important of all but was seriously considered only by very few social reformers.)
(The times have changed since he made this remark - but not yet enough! - J.Z.)
The reader's problem will not be to find additional reading material but to escape drowning in a sea of it. There are probably tens of thousands of books and articles relevant to this essay - far too many. Each publication itself contains references to scores of others.” - Samuel Brittan, in: How to End the ‘Monetarist’ Controversy. IEA, Hobart Paper 90, in introducing his select bibliography. His statement applies to all the writings on money, interest, clearing, credit, banking, finance.
Neither gold nor silver is logically necessary to free banking, but respect for historically demonstrated consumer preferences suggests that a specie standard is the natural place to start.” - Lawrence Henry White, Competition & Currency, p.163.
Without sufficient sound money - no sufficiently advanced civilization! - Without it peace, freedom, prosperity, justice - all genuine individual rights and liberties, and fast enough progress cannot be achieved and maintained. - John Zube, 20.5.10.
Pool your related information. Turn it into an ocean of knowledge that can really make waves that could smash the remaining barriers to monetary and financial freedom - for those, who already appreciate them - while letting the rest suffer under their remaining ignorance and prejudices that do tolerate or even demand monetary and financial despotism. - John Zube, 3.6.10.
Some introductory remarks
Incomplete and flawed as this list still is, at least for the time being, I draw my line here, for further input from me. This compilation is presented as an open work in progress, waiting for the input from many others. I am all too aware of how incomplete and flawed this effort of mine still is, even though I have shamelessly copied bibliographical hints by many others. I have not even included all of my own hints in all of my digitized files.
However, this compilation is by now as far as I can and want to proceed in this direction, after a few months of hard labor on it. I will largely and gladly leave it to others to double and quadruple this kind of list and correct it. An individual should not try to put too much on his shoulders.
In my opinion it is laborious and rather boring to try to give the entries a somewhat unified form. Never as uniform as they would be in an electronic data bank. However, that form, without the personal touch and opinions, as I have often added in my listing, can also be very boring to the compiler and the reader.
With a total of over ca. 664 pages and almost 10.000 paragraphs, so far, in the alphabetized part, this is enough of a compilation for one man. Thus I am prepared to leave its completion, including numerous corrections, other and better judgments, abstracts, links to reviews and to the full electronic text reproduction to others, who could and should efficiently and fast collaborate - via email, CDs and a website for the latest input and corrections.
It should be self-evident that the basic reference tools of the science of money and finance cannot be fully supplied by a single scientists or private student of liberty. It cannot even be fully compiled by him from various inputs by others, but only through a world-wide collaboration of those, interested in this science, and be it only because they are all victims of the present system.
Any science requires input from many people. By now no one has the time, interest and energy to read and contemplate all the writings on the subject. By sufficient collaboration between many people all of these titles could and should be fully listed, explored, criticized or confirmed, either in an electronic data bank or in an digitized A to Z encyclopedia on monetary and financial freedom. Including abstracts and at least links to reviews and discussions. Finally in a comprehensive electronic library.
All these texts should be made easily, fully, permanently and as cheaply as possible accessible to all who are interested in them. If copyrights claims are still an obstacle then, by published abstracts, reviews, indexes, discussions, the significant ideas should be made known in a comprehensive electronic reference library on this subject. By now such a special and comprehensive reference library could fit onto a single large capacity disc, 1 TB or 2 TBs, merely book-sized and already very affordable.
I entered many personal and opinionated remarks. Others are invited to add theirs, whether contrary or supportive. Electronically there is space for all of them. At least via a link.
Collaboration could be organized on a website or via emails to one or several listed compilers of a CD or DVD on free banking, monetary and financial freedom, which could also contain all of the full texts, to the extent that copyrights are expired or not claimed. An address or contacts list should also be added, with hints to the special monetary or financial freedom interests of those listed.
If known, birth and death dates should be mentioned. Especially birth dates of relatively recent writers who are or might still be alive and ought to be contacted for more corrections and input from them.
A directory to all living and active advocates of monetary and financial freedom should be aimed at and gradually compiled and published in ever increased updates - to promote collaboration among them.
Electronically there are hardly any size or communication limits for a network collaboration of this kind. For an individual there are all too many limits.
I am 77 now and still want to work on some other subjects still, e.g.:
1.) a much further extended A to Z on free banking, monetary freedom and financial freedom, especially voluntary taxation or voluntary contributions to or subscriptions to exterritorialy autonomous communities of volunteers (panarchies, under panarchism);
2.) a bibliography of panarchism and
3.) an A to Z compilation on panarchism of related terms, resources, authors, ideas, opinions, plans, project and refutations.
These will, probably, occupy me for the rest of my life. So far I have only compiled already long but still very incomplete digitized files, for projects 2 to 3. These two on panarchism are not yet online, to my knowledge. Any help on bringing them closer to completion would be very much welcomed by me. I could not afford to pay for such work but would gladly share some of my files via email attachments or, when I do get around to it, CD compilations of them.
Contemplate: A handful of monetary freedom activists, using photocopiers and micrographics, or cheap scanners - could probably reproduce all monetary freedom writings between them, online, microfiche, or CDs, DVDs, or on an external HD, within a few months. It could be an Archimedean leverage option for them. But will they see it, grasp it and use it? As much as I could do, with microfiche, on my own, with the help of some friends, I have done, until 2002, in my PEACE PLANS series, which ended with issue 1779. Since then I have digitized some titles. Much more I cannot do on my own.
LMP: LIBERTARIAN MICROFICHE PUBLISHING, with its PEACE PLANS series, was never intended to be more than a pilot scheme to demonstrate what can be done, needs to be done and ought to be done in this sphere and to give me a chance to put some of my favorite titles permanently in print, at least on microfiche, which are, alas, still a very unpopular medium and may remain so. Its many advantages for self-publishing and reading were largely overlooked or underutilized for all too many decades. By now and likewise, not even the floppy disc and CD options have been fully utilized by libertarians and anarchists for their kind of literature.
Not everything does have to be placed online. Sufficiently listed and wanted texts could also be paid for and transmitted via email attachments or on discs, particularly very large compilations. - Compare the large encyclopedias now offered on discs. In this sphere, too, we need a special WIKIPEDIA.
Seeing all the implications of full monetary and financial freedom and the consequences of monetary and financial despotism, our very survival may depend upon sufficient enlightenment on these topics.
Too many potential libertarian publishers and readers have stuck too much and for all too long to their limited and relatively expensive print-on-paper and website publishing and reading options, unaware or unappreciative of the alternatives, e.g. microfilm, CD and email publishing and reading possibilities.
Regarding my many omissions, errors and mistakes:
Please point them out to me. I hope for thousands to tens of thousands of titles to become, gradually, added to this compilation - by others. If there were input from thousands to tens of thousands …
By all means, add your full contact options, special interests and your website to a list of collaborators on this and related projects.
Also send me more such material for my collection or for scanning-in by myself, for if you do not get around doing so, then I still might, if I find it interesting enough.
By now almost anyone in the somewhat developed world can afford a cheap scanner. They already have been down to $ 100, including an OCR scanning program.
Others might establish a more effective collection point for more such input than I can provide by myself. Perhaps it does already exist. See e.g. the ATLAS attempt. See also under WEBSITES.
Anyone reading or browsing through this compilation is invited to become a co-editor, by adding his remarks, however critical, and additional entries, but not by cutting out existing entries or re-writing them. We need freedom of expression and information for all, in this sphere as well. Even if, personally, we do strongly disagree with them on some or many points!
All are also invited to add warnings about certain texts as being mainly in opposition to the rights and liberties here advocated, rather than standing up for them. I could not possibly read and evaluate all these texts myself, even if I had access to all of them.
On discs there is almost endless space for further input, cross-references, corrections and refinements and any kind of special selections could also be offered by some.
The addresses of those of all of the authors are wanted, who are still alive and of others actively working for or seriously interested in monetary and financial freedom. Many of the addresses that I do have, are outdated, by several years. This time I intend to keep them on computer disk and update them there and include the listing a planned digitized newsletter.
Undoubtedly, someone else will be better at doing this job than I am. Please, step forward and make yourself known and appreciated!
John Zube, 11 July 2010
JZem = Presently only available from J.Z. as email attachment
JZL = The title is in the library or files of J.Z.
OLL = Online Library on Liberty
PP = PEACE PLANS
The fact that most of the titles mentioned, by various authors, in their, mostly, all too short bibliographies, do refer, only to the same titles, does suggest to that the writers did not have access to most of the titles on the subject.
Naturally, they could also blame lack of space in the printed editions for the shortness of their bibliographies.
But why this great number of the same titles being mentioned, instead of authors referring also to many of the less often quoted titles? Do they only wish to quote the better known ones? Or are many of the others unknown or unappreciated by them?
When browsing through all these numerous titles, still only very incompletely listed here, I am reminded of a remark by Ulrich von Beckerath, in which he stated that we are still far away from fully understanding the economy.
Perhaps just as far as we are still from understanding fully what causes health and what are the causes and cures of all diseases, what causes peace and what causes wars and how we can become free in every respect as soon as possible with the least waste of time, effort and money. - J.Z., 5.6.10.
Ask yourself why so many writings of this kind have not led, so far, to monetary enlightenment and a monetary freedom revolution.
Obviously, many of these texts have remained largely unknown or inaccessible, out of print or offered only in relatively expensive print and never all of them together, in a single reference library, with sufficient access tools, abstracts and reviews, far less in the form of electronic argument mapping, in an Ideas Archive, an Abstracts Compilation and a Reviews Compilation and supplemented by a directory to the advocates and an Encyclopedia of the Best Refutations of the Errors, Myths, Prejudices, Wrong Assumptions and False Conclusions of Monetary despotism.
By now a single large disc, e.g. an external HD, could bring them all, to the extent that copyrights claims are not an obstacle. Can we afford not to use this technical opportunity?
Who would wish to claim copyrights on such writings while monetary despotism still prevails? Is there something like a duty to help promote enlightenment in this sphere. I hold that it could provide much more help, opportunities for self-help and prosperity to more people in the world than all the present charitable and Welfare State efforts in combination.
Whether all the mentioned titles are genuine free banking titles or only works with some references to free banking and thus mentioned by the compilers, remains to be seen, through input of abstracts and reviews and corrections from others interested in such topics. The titles do not always and clearly enough indicate the contents. Sometimes it is only hinted at through the names or texts that indicate the source of an entry.
Moreover, in spite of their general titles, they may contain nothing on fully free banking or are even strongly opposed to it. (Rothbard represented an extreme case of this kind, through some errors and misunderstandings.) In the latter case their arguments have to be met and in the former case a warning should be added.
Having worked on the enlargement of my old free banking bibliography (basically still the same as that of 1990) for over 4 months by now, I think it is time to draw the line and leave further additions and corrections, comments, abstracts and links to reviews to others, once this incomplete and imperfect bibliography is put online, as a standing invitation to others to complete it.
All these numerous texts, in combination, remind me of an analogy that my friend Ulrich von Beckerath often uttered:
Imagine a heap of gun powder, stored somewhere in a dry and protected place, for a long time. It seems quite harmless. But then let just one spark fall into it and no power in the world can prevent it from exploding.
Let’s hope that all freedom texts, plus their abstracts, their reviews and discussions and an electronic or alphabetized databank of their ideas, facts and opinions do, soon, become fully accessible to anyone interested. Then we might really get an “information explosion”.
The same could be true once all information on panarchism is properly assembled and made accessible. Knowledge can be power, a liberating power or at least a strong influence. Mostly I have shortly added where I found the reference to a title or who offered it. Often this addition is more indicative than the title itself.
Obviously, this literature list does need peer review and this also by genuine academic scholars not just by long-term hobby students and scribblers like myself, especially when it comes to corrections, supplementation, the addition of abstracts and referrals to reviews.
As an anarchist individualist, I do invite this kind of voluntary and productive collectivist cooperation to finally approach completion of this project as far as is humanly possible. We ought to mobilize all our resources for the monetary freedom enlightenment, its struggle or even a comprehensive but quite peaceful monetary and financial freedom revolution. To achieve this, e.g. an Ideas Archive and a common libertarian PROJECTS LIST, online, would be very helpful.
Should there not be, among almost 7 billion people, enough to add to the still missing references and correct the flawed entries, eliminate those wrongly included, or transform them into warnings about them, to provide proper abstracts, refer to all available reviews and full text offers and to discuss all such writings sufficiently, once all these texts are made available to all interested people, in digitized and affordable form?
I did what I could with this compilation, as a work in progress. From now on, it is mostly up to others to provide supplementary entries, corrections, abstracts, hints to reviews, discussions, criticism and entries on characteristics of certain texts, including warnings, also “proper” entries for or into an electronic databank, like that begun by Klaus Falke.
Some titles, mainly governmental publications, were excluded by me. I do not mind if others were to include them.
I did include, on the other hand, some personal opinions or notes. In discussions about rightful and free exchanges there ought also to be a free exchange of ideas, facts and opinions.
Note that I have left out, quite intentionally, some large sets of newspapers and journals, just as I would have left out hints to whole public or private libraries, collections and archives.
In my opinion bibliographic entries should be more specific. - J.Z., 2.4.10.
Some of the entries provided here might contain too little or almost nothing about full monetary freedom or are written by opponents of it. Please mark such titles as such, adding your full name, or initials and contact option, if you can afford to do so.
So much was written on money, currency, banking, credit, interest, financing - and often with all too little thought, judgment and regard to facts, including most of the laws and regulations in this sphere. Whatever is of lasting value in all these texts has still and largely to be sufficiently sorted out and clearly and convincingly described.
I have included all kinds of titles on money, credit, interest and financing, hoping that they might contain at least something on monetary and financial freedom, as they certainly should. It would take many people to check them out. (Otherwise, they could serve at least to study “economics” and its effects under monetary and financial despotism.)
Sorry, but I cannot guarantee that all the texts listed here will contain at least some sound facts, thoughts, opinions or ideas that are of interest to monetary and financial freedom advocates, which all of them should. To the extent that all of them are factual and scientific reports they should contain at least some such ideas, texts and references.
However, here many texts dealing with money etc. could only be mentioned by me, hopefully, without having been checked out by myself. - Even when referred to by some writers, who do advocate at least some aspects of monetary freedom, this is no guaranty that the referred-to texts are also containing something of monetary freedom interest.
To sort them out and mark them correctly requires much more than my own and rather limited access to such titles and reading capacity. What fraction of all the people in the world, who do, almost daily, handle some or the other kind of money, would be required to complete and correct this listing and to evaluate, abstract and review all these titles properly?
Have we not yet suffered enough abuses in this sphere to motivate us, finally, to stand up for our monetary and financial rights and liberties and to attempt to rid out minds of their remaining errors, myths and prejudices in this sphere?
I found it encouraging that even some Federal Reserve Bank titles have come out for monetary freedom.
By making all relevant texts available in digitized form and sharing out the labor of evaluating them in an electronically organized division of labor process, the job of characterizing all of them properly could and should be done rather fast. We can’t afford to leave it to future decades and even centuries to finally achieve clarity in this sphere. At least we should all come to agree upon the voluntarism, tolerance and experimental freedom involved in full monetary freedom.
Since, so far, no one has access to (as well as time and energy, to browse through all of these texts), every future thinker and writer on monetary freedom should, finally, have at his disposal:
1.) A complete bibliography of all relevant writings.
2.) A complete abstract compilation of these writings.
3.) All their reviews.
4.) All these texts in electronic form, best on a disc.
5.) An archive of all ideas and plans in this sphere.
6.) A history of all the monetary experiments already undertaken.
7.) An encyclopedia of the best refutations of all the remaining errors, prejudices, false definitions, assumptions, premises and conclusions in this sphere.
8.) All the discussions that have taken place, perhaps best in form of electronic “argument mapping”.
9.) An encyclopedia of all the relevant and often different definitions of the same term.
10.) Comprehensive tables of the characteristics of all the various exchange media, value standards, clearing and credit systems experimented with or proposed.
11.) A comprehensive electronic compilation of all the diverse theories, hypotheses, definitions and opinion on money.
12.) An alphabetized electronic encyclopedia of all related ideas, opinions arguments and facts.
13.) An electronic data bank on the subject.
14.) A directory to all who have a serious interest in monetary and financial freedom.
Freedom of exchange should be well organized, especially when it comes to such ideas, and knowledge.
Add your own suggestions to this wishing list and then contribute something to help bring about at least one of them. - J.Z., 28.4.10.
The number of authors and writings in this sphere is large and yet the number of those, which show sufficient knowledge, understanding and justice in this sphere is still only small. At least that is my opinion. But then I am not an academic scholar but merely a long-term private hobby student of liberty and rights in this sphere.
When you send me any corrections or additions, while this option is as yet not offered online, by anyone, please send them either separately, and already alphabetized, or included in the general list, but in whatever color you choose to mark them.
Would it not be nice if we had, freely collaborating all over the world, in reading, publishing, discussing, criticizing all the remaining errors, prejudices, false assumptions and conclusions, been enabled to add all the missing titles and to add to each of them, if they still required this, e.g.: This text is still suffering from errors, prejudices etc. Nos. …………………..?
That kind of criticism, referring to an encyclopedia of the best refutations so far found, for errors, prejudices etc., which are obstacles to progress, should, in future, accompany the offer of all texts in the social sciences. - J.Z., 25.2.2010.
Almost all of these writers are in disagreement with each other - at least on some points. Which makes another point for full monetary freedom.
To each the system of his own preference - as long as he can stand it or is pleased with it. Nobody can, rightly, demand any more.
This is one of our most important arsenals! Let us fill it and electronically multiply it, including the full texts. Let us keep this intellectual ammunition, these “weapons” and “bullets” up to date and well polished and oiled, ready for instant use anywhere and by anyone, in one of the best causes, always corrected, and supplemented whenever and wherever needed. - J.Z., 23.5.10.
In favor of Klaus Falke’s planned electronic data bank on free banking I have to admit that it would be nice if one could sort out all these text entries e.g. by the date of their first publication. Moreover, still alive and active writers could then also be sorted out. - J.Z., 9.7.10.
I hold that an appendix should be added here of some special bibliographies.
As a sample I include just one, by Thomas Bruce Robb. See below.
FB Bibliography, special bibliography by Robb, in RTF, The Guaranty of Bank Deposits, 1921.
Rather than integrating this special bibliography in the general one, I add it as an appendix. There are other entries on the subject of guaranties and insurance of bank deposits in the general bibliography. I have not attempted to combine them here. - But I would like to see many special bibliographies compiled on related subjects. Entries on monetary freedom and on financial freedom might also be separately listed. - But I rather leave all such chores to others, in accordance with their interests and time and energy. - J.Z., 17.7.10.
ROBB, THOMAS BRUCE, The Guaranty of Bank Deposits, Boston & New York, Houghton Mifflin Co., The Riverside Press Cambridge, 1921, indexed and with bibliography, 225 pages.
The material for the study of the guaranty of bank deposits may for convenience be divided into three general classes.
In the first place, there is a great mass of material which the heated discussion in the early stages of the movement called forth. This material is in the form of contributed articles, editorials, and reported speeches of bankers and others in which the subject is discussed both pro and con. This material is of little help in studying the subsequent history of the movement, but it is of inestimable value in showing the ideas uppermost in the minds of people as they approached the subject for the first time. Besides the magazine articles listed below the best sources of this material are in such financial publications as the Chicago Banker, the Commercial and Financial Chronicle, the Bankers' Magazine, Bradstreet's, etc. There is also a great deal of the same kind of material to be found in the Proceedings of the American Bankers' Association and of the State Bankers' Associations in the various states.
The second source of material is found in such articles as those of Thornton Cooke, Z. C. Dickinson, and V. E. Danner. These articles have been written since the laws became effective and give much valuable data regarding the different laws in operation. Of these articles the ones by Thornton Cooke in the Quarterly Journal of Economics are the most helpful, not only because of the study he has given to the laws, but also because of his un-biased and scientific approach to the subject. The articles by Z. C. Dickinson are confined to Nebraska, and give the best presentation of the historical background of the law in that state. V. E. Danner has confined himself largely to Oklahoma. He is an ardent supporter of the guaranty idea, and presents a strong case for that side of the question.
Finally, the last general source of information is actual field work. Only in this way can indispensable data be secured and the manifest temper of the people be understood. This kind of work is especially important in Oklahoma. When the Oklahoma law was passed the state government was not well established. In the meantime the state capital had been removed from Guthrie to Oklahoma City, and, pending the construction of a capitol building, the different state departments were housed in various office buildings of the city. In this confusion most of the early records of the administration of the law seem to have been lost. In addition to this the present state banking department has little sympathy with the early administration of the law and knows practically nothing of what was then done. For these reasons much of the early history of the Oklahoma law can be secured only through personal interviews with the men who were in touch with affairs at that time. Finally, the operation of the Oklahoma law is inseparably connected with the remarkable economic development of the state, and some of the aspects of this situation can be fully understood only after close contact with the people who have lived through that period of the state's development.

I could, probably, play around with this compilation for the rest of my life, at 77, adding, perhaps, per day, in the average, another entry or two or even more, from all the printed and digitized sources on offer.
However, I do have other plans and, rather, throw this compilation into the public domain, to be completed by others, who are interested in this sphere, correct and supplement it as much as is needed and comment upon as much as they want to, stressing all those resources, ideas and opinions that they think to be important on the topic.
A complete bibliography, abstracts, review and discussion compilation might result, relatively soon, and, finally, a complete electronic reference library on the subject. Also a reference work that concentrates on the best refutations of all the errors, myths, prejudice, false assumptions, conclusions, dogmas and supposed “laws” on the subject.
With such a resource finally built up, the realization of full monetary and financial freedom should no longer be far away. - Sufficient knowledge may not provide “power” but it can provide influence. - J.Z., 8.7.10.
Please consider the very flaws and incompleteness of this compilation as a standing invitation to you to help improve it, by adding more titles by author, title and subject, also indicating source.
