(Interesting, just learnt this today) At what age did you find out that the Wizard of Oz story is a criticism of fiat money?

  1. The golden path that leads us to Emerald City is an indication of gold and Dorothy’s silver shoes are a direct and clear indication of silver. Because silver was used in the aggressive monetary expansion of the time. Dorothy Ruby wore shoes in the Judy Garland film produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1936. But in L. Frank Baum’s original story, the shoes were silver. The witches with the names of the cardinal points refer to the regions of the country. And the Wizard of Oz is of course a scam. The populist politician who promotes monetary expansion.

  2. tldr; L. Frank Baum wrote the children’s story “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” after the panic of 1893 and published it in 1900. Baum was an advocate of women and Native Americans, but criticized the expansionary monetary policy of his time. The story is a political allegory and criticism of Fiat money does not come directly from the author.
