Endless Money

by William Baker Addison Wiggin

A detailed look at how, and why, the American financial system has reached its current stateToday's economy and capital markets are faced with the long-term buildup of public and private credit. Furthermore, we face higher taxes, greater spending, and more debt. We are now at a critical crossroads and our leaders have few realistic solutions. Proposals calling for tax reforms or fewer regulations have fallen on deaf ears. In fact, U.S. democracy has become more socialist and reform is needed immediately. Endless Money is an examination of how the U.S. government and the country's financial systems have embraced socialism, and why cultural deterioration reinforces the trend and jeopardizes democracy. In it, author William Baker sees this socialism embodied in two things. The first is the socialization of income, the second is the socialization of credit.Explores the present socialistic qualities of the American government and its financial systemLooks back at how today's conditions relate not just to the Great Depression, but ancient empires such as RomeCalls for radical changes such as reduced regulatory power of the Federal Reserve, a considerable devaluation of the dollar in terms of gold, and repeal of income taxIncludes a Web site devoted to book, with recommendations, quotes from the financial community, and think tank contactsInsightful and informative, Endless Money examines our current economic condition and describes what the United States can do to get back on the right economic track.

Timothy Warren Anglin: 1822-96

by William Baker

Born in Ireland in 1822, Timothy Warren emigrated to New Brunswick in 1849 and quickly became involved in the life and politics of the city of Saint John and the colony. As founder and editor of the newspaper the Freeman, he came lay spokesman for the large, mainly lower-class Irish Catholic population in Saint John, supporting its attempts to alleviate the poverty and harshness of life in New Brunswick and voicing its desire to be accepted as a responsible part of the community. Although Anglin shared his countrymen's resentment of the British presence in Ireland, he saw Britain's role in North America as a positive one. Both as a newspaperman and later as a practicing politician he pressed for the constitutional and non-violent redress of grievances. His Irish background and sympathies coupled with his moderate political stance and strongly middle class outlook made him an effective mediator between the Irish Catholics in New Brunswick and the rest of the community. In the 1860s Anglin was an active participant in the complex political manoeuvrings in New Brunswick, the Freeman providing a platform for his strenuous opposition to Confederation. Although the anti-Confederates were unsuccessful, Anglin's career provides insight into both the muddy politics of Confederation and the process of adjustment to the new order. Ultimately the union that Anglin had opposed won his loyalty, a demonstration of the fact that, despite its problems, the strength of the new nation of Canada was considerable. He was a member of the Canadian House of Commons from 1867 to 1882 and Speaker of the House from 1874 to 1878. This study of the public career of Timothy Warren Anglin--newspaperman, politician, Irish Catholic leader--sheds light on the political and social history of British North America in the second half of the nineteenth century and on the emergence and growth of the Canadian nation.
