This site is dedicated to Richard Kotlarz.
His research and writings on economics, both current and historical events, is extensive. You are invited to browse the articles, including his latest addition – a cumulative work spanning a decade (also available on Amazon if you would like to own a printed version):
Despite the ‘dry’ topic of economics and currencies, Rich’s writings bring in the human element – the lives and times of those controlling, participating, or being adversely affected by ‘these forces’. It makes for fascinating reading, from recent times in Flint, Michigan, to ancient Rome’s monetary involvement. Richard shared with me his interest that began…
…several decades ago. He took an Economics college course to better understand what ‘money’ was all about and how it flowed through society. (The law of supply-and-demand that we are all familiar with.) He questioned his professor on what he sensed were errors in the system; his instructor told him ‘to go write a paper and prove his point’. So Rich did just that, an 80-page discourse on the potentially flawed economics thinking. It caused a bit of of a stir in the instructors’ lounge as they tried to wrap their heads around his concepts. This led him further into research and study, and indeed, it continues to this day.
I became involved with Richard’s work when I innocently asked him,
“What is Money?”… That is a loaded question! I could not have asked a wiser person, nor received such all-encompassing responses over the years I’ve known him.
