THE legal history of the United States of America’s monetary system.

Pieces of Eight describes the development, and defines the basic elements, of the constitutional systems of money and banking that the Founding Fathers created–the “original intent” that, because the Constitution has never been amended in these particulars, remains the law today.

Next, it details the devolution of this system into the present mishmash of monetary lawlessness–what happened, when, why, at whose hands, and for whose benefit.

Throughout, Pieces of Eight delegitimates this developing corruption with incisive critiques of the statutes, executive actions, and especially judicial decisions that turned the constitutional systems of money and banking upside down.

Finally, even while candidly delineating the difficulties that stand in the way of restoring constitutional standards, it outlines possible reforms at both the national and State levels.
