The Way to Freedom, Part 1

Golden Crisis

Authored by Carl Kyler



Author Carl Kyler's thrilling debut, The Way to Freedom, Part 1, is the first of a four-part adventure series about how financial crises shake the foundations of modern civilization. It is the story of an economics professor and five of his students, who set out to rebuild their lives after the subprime crisis, and end up changing the world by reversing the trend of accelerating public debt and deficits, covered up by using paper-money inflation and ever-increasing taxes. This powerful and thought-provoking work covers both the economics and the politics of the past decade and of the coming decade. Romantic realism at its best, the novel offers fantastic but believable characters and a dramatic plot that combines fast-paced physical action with in-depth ideological conflicts.

In his complex but easy to read work of fiction about a crucial topic, Kyler explains the world economy as it is and envisions how it could be transformed in order to cure it of problems that have plagued it since the rapid spread of fiat money and central banking at the start of the twentieth century. By following the lives of five college graduates, Kyler tells a thrilling tale of what the subprime crisis did to their lives. Each character is forced to make tough decisions for their businesses, their families, and even their citizenships. The lessons they once learned from their college economics professor, the unorthodox and plainspoken Professor Benson, have a profound effect on their actions. They use his lessons to rebuild their lives after the subprime crisis and as the professor helps a small country introduce gold money, his former students find ways to support his effort. But as the global financial crisis escalates, the race is tight to salvage whatever can be salvaged as the United States and the European Union slam radical tax increases on wealthy individuals and successful corporations in an attempt to weather the crisis. Realizing that the trend toward gold money represents a direct threat to their power over society, governments and central banks set out to destroy it, but they encounter unexpected resistance ignited by Benson and his former students. As a gold banker, a gold mutual fund manager, an international trader, an undercover agent inside the Federal Reserve, and a creator of a social network that promotes sound money and individual freedom, the young friends set out to help their professor revolutionize the workings of the world economy.
