An action-adventure movie about monetary policy?
Yes, there is an action-adventure movie about monetary policy: Silver Circle. Silver Circle takes place in the year 2019, a time when hyperinflation and a Federal Reserve-run “Office of Housing Stability” that seizes private homes to ensure adequate demand in the housing market beset America. The movie deals with a band of rebels who print their own alternative coins known as Silver Circles. Unlike all-to-many political movies, Silver Circle does not beat you over the head with its message; instead, the ideas are integrated into the storyline. This film, which is currently showing at theaters nationwide and will soon be available on DVD and Blue-Ray, could serve as a useful way to introduce people to our ideas regarding the Federal Reserve and sound money.
Here is Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul on the movie:
“I am very excited about Silver Circle, which spreads the message of liberty and sound money via an exciting tale of a future where the Federal Reserve has killed the dollar, the US economy has collapsed, and the federal government has slid into complete authoritarianism. Fortunately, a brave band of rebels works to restore liberty and undermine the Federal Reserve’s power via an alternative currency.
Using popular culture to spread our message is key to the long-term victory of our revolution, as movies like Silver Circle enable us to reach audiences who otherwise might not be exposed to the ideas of liberty.”
