On Show 20 of the MisesUK.Org podcast, regular host Andy Duncan spoke with Claudio Grass, a Mises Ambassador for the Mises Institute and a precious metals advisor based in Switzerland, about Hayek’s ideas on the denationalisation of money. These stem from Hayek’s book on this subject first published in 1976. They focussed on the removal of the state from the production of money and the relevancy of Hayek’s ideas in this newer age of cryptocurrencies, along with the older monies of gold, silver, and other valuable commodities, possibly also becoming combined with the latest block chain technologies.
