Ron Paul Endorses Krugman Debate

Federal Reserve, Ron Paul, Shameless Self-Promotion 10 Comments

Briggs Armstrong tipped me off to this; it comes up at the 4:40 mark:

If you haven’t made your pledge yet, what the heck is the matter with you?

BTW more generally, how amazing is it that CNBC is showing a picture of his book, and he’s openly talking about these matters? Krugman et al.* must be aghast at the “insanity.”

* And by et al. I mean Megan McArdle.

    There’s nothing wrong with regular Americans being aghast at Washington politicians spouting nonsense.

    • Daniel Kuehn says:

      He means well, to be sure. I’m not slighting the guy’s sincerity.

    Who said anything about regular Americans?

    • Daniel Kuehn says:

      Well I’d imagine that liberty to be aghast at Washington ought to be enjoyed by the irregulars among us too 🙂

    You can only make pledges from the US, Canada and UK. That’s the matter with me!

    Too bad your name slipped his mind. The host was probably thinking, “What’s he rambling about? I don’t know any economists from Austria.”

    Hi Dr. Murphy,

    I tried to make a pledge but the only available options from the country dropdown are USA, Canada, Australia and UK.

    What about all your continental Eurpoean Austrian followers, how can we support your effort?


    • bobmurphy says:

      Thanks for the support. You can spread the YouTube promotional videos when I post them. That’s always good.

  6. JR says:

    So to clarify, we simply can’t pledge unless we have a credit card with a registered address in the USA, Canada, Australia and UK?

    Oh well. Keep up the good work!

    This is great!

    He assumes that that the debate challenge is so well known, he doesn’t even need to mention Murphy’s name.
