How the Monetary Elite Benefit At Your Expense
(Foundation for the Advancement of Monetary Education, 2001) 244 pages/ ISBN 0-9710380-3-1
By Vincent R. LoCascio
Special Privilege alleges that government grants special privileges to the financial sector of the economy that violate the fundamental principles of free enterprise that most of us cherish. In addition to the injustice of these special privileges, they pervert the free market, thereby guaranteeing a mammoth future crash. In other words, like a needle in the arm to a drug addict, special privileges not only guarantee a future collapse but also push it off further into the future. The solution can take one of several forms, all of which boil down to: remove the special privileges.
"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together
in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal
system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”

Here is what others are saying about Special Privilege:
“In a scholarly but easily readable style, Vincent LoCascio strips away all the technical mumbo-jumbo of the bankers’ jargon and lays bare the awful truth about the American monetary system.
When the inevitable and cataclysmic crack of the U.S. economy occurs, people will single out this book saying, ‘Oh, if only we could have used this to awaken the American public to the devastating role the banking system would play in the destruction of our nation.’
Sadly, for the very reason the author spells out, I am afraid we are doomed to experience the coming disaster like lemmings racing to the sea-cliffs, rather than to initiate the relatively simple solutions.”
former National Chairman of the Reform Party,
“In his outstanding explanation of the injustice of our current monetary system, Vince LoCascio exposes the grim reality, yet manages to be entertaining in the process. When the 'dollar' finally collapses, Special Privilege will make a very important contribution to the understanding of what went wrong and how to fix it.”

Excerpts from Scott Ryan, "Top 50" Reviewer at Amazon.com:
Vincent R. LoCascio
Vince received a B.A. in Economics, magna cum laude from Hunter College in
1966 and an M.B.A. in Corporate Finance, with distinction, in 1968 from
NYU. From the late 60s to mid 80s, he was a litigation consultant with
Peat, Marwick and, later, Ernst & Whinney. In this capacity, he conducted
studies on disputed economic and financial issues in litigation and
testified on his findings.
In 1985, Vince became a member of the American Stock Exchange where he traded for his own account using a mathematically sophisticated model he had developed for that purpose. In 1994, Vince hoped to fulfill a lifelong goal to teach by educating people about prudent financial planning. As it turned out, financial planning was more about selling than educating. Vince continues to write about, and give seminars on, self-sufficient financial planning, but he no longer takes clients. To fulfill his thirst for teaching, Vince currently teaches and tutors for Kaplan Test Prep. He also participates in curriculum development and trains new teachers for the organization. In 2000, he was named “Teacher of the Year” for the Connecticut-New York-New Jersey tri-state region.
Vince views Special Privilege as another opportunity to teach about a subject he knows much about and over which there is such confusion. Vince is 60 years old, married, and has two grown children. He lives with his wife, Bette Jayne, in Old Bridge, NJ.
