A Chapter in Constitutional Subversion

Email Print

Between 1837 and 1900, a series of Supreme Court decisions flouted the constitutional prohibition of state issues of paper money. I’ve made available an article on this as part 3 of a continuing series on the U.S. Constitution and money. These articles review Edwin Vieira Jr.’s out-of-print book “Pieces of Eight”. This article is here. The three¬†articles (and others on other subjects) can be found in my scribd archive. They can be read for free. To download scribd documents, one may join, which is a fast and harmless procedure.
