Doug Casey's Point of View

His point of view is from a libertarian stance, and he believes in the power of the individual and the freedom to live one's life according to their liberties and individual responsibilities.

Doug Casey is not a fan of the overreaching arms of government, like these other free market capitalist.

Doug Casey's View on Money...

Doug Casey stated these quotes when asked about the Morality of Money.

"... the accumulation of wealth is in and of itself an important social, as well as personal, good. The good to individuals of accumulating wealth is obvious, but the social good often goes unrecognized. Put simply, progress requires capital. Major new undertakings, from hydro-power dams to spaceships, to new medical devices and treatments, require huge amounts of capital. If you’re not willing to extract that capital from the population via the coercion of taxes, i.e., steal it, you need wealth to accumulate in private hands to pay for these things. In other words, if the world is going to improve, we need huge pools of capital, intelligently invested. We need as many “obscenely” rich people as possible."

He's stating that Capitalism is a Good Thing, as well as capital, profit, and people who have wealth.

He was then asked, "So money is all good...nothing bad about it at all?"

Doug states:

"...money itself isn’t the problem. Money is just a store of value and a means of exchange. What is bad about that? Gold, as we’ve discussed many times, happens to be the best form of money the market has ever produced: It’s convenient, consistent, durable, divisible, has intrinsic value (it’s the second-most reflective and conductive metal, the most nonreactive, the most ductile, and the most malleable of all metals), and can’t be created out of thin air.

Those are gold’s attributes. People attribute all sorts of other silly things to gold, and poetic critics talk about the evils of the lust for gold. But it’s not the gold itself that’s evil — it’s the psychological aberrations and weaknesses of unethical people that are the problem. The critics are fixating on what is merely a tool, rather than the ethical merits or failures of the people who use the tool and are responsible for the consequences of their actions."

Money is not evil, it's what individuals do with it that brings scrutiny on to capital and wealth.
