Atlas is pleased to announce the release of a new, limited edition reprinting of Thomas Jefferson’s Notes on the Establishment of a Money Unit, with original photographs of the 1784 text. Envisioned by Atlas Senior Fellow Judy Shelton, this unique and beautifully crafted book provides the historical foundations of America’s ideals towards money and currency. In the foreword, Dr. Shelton asks, “Why did the man responsible for defining the ideals of a nation take it upon himself to define the value of its money unit?” For Shelton, the text, in its original form, makes clear both Jefferson’s thought process and clarifies his objectives. It demonstrates his desire to ensure money in America served as an accurate and reliable standard of value, not as another policy instrument for government to serve its own ends. AVAILABLE VIA:
