Rothbard: http://mises.org/money/3s2.asp
(The entire treatise "What Has Government Done to our Money" is excellent reading).

Schiff: http://www.schiffradio.com/b/Pentonomics---The-Cause-and-Evidence-of-Inflation/419269008642342955.html
Schiff consistently explains inflation as an increase in the money supply throughout his work. More can be read here (why not listen to the guys that were right?):

Comment Predictions? see Kyllo v. United States (Score 5, Informative) 191

Wrong. Your best bet for predictions is Kyllo v. United States, 533 U.S. 27.

Kyllo held that the use of a thermal imaging device from a public vantage point to monitor the radiation of heat from a person's home was a "search" within the meaning of the Fourth Amendment, and thus required a warrant. Because the police in this case did not have a warrant, the Court reversed Kyllo's conviction for growing marijuana.

Majority: Scalia, joined by Souter, Thomas, Ginsburg, Breyer

Dissent: Stevens, joined by Rehnquist, O'Connor, Kennedy

Kyllo was a win for us, but you can bet Sotamayor and Kagan will follow Stevens lead, and Roberts and Alito will follow Rehnquist/Connor. We get the worst of both the "liberal" and "conservative" Justices.
