Murphy Retracing Mises’ Footsteps

All Posts 11 Comments

I’m in Vienna for the Mises Institute’s Supporters Summit. I am going to force myself to be super productive by not paying for internet access in the room. (I can get online for free in the lobby, so that’s where I’ll get my materials and then go to the room and actually work.) Thus blogging may be sparse for a while. But the elusive von Pepe is here as well, and we ate frankfurters while discussing the faulty Keynesian approach to potential GDP. Stay tuned.

    Out of curiosity, is this really a “Keynesian” thing? I just always thought that was how it was measured.

    • Giovanni P says:

      There’s no measurement outside keynesianism. Every measure is keynesian.

      • Bob Murphy says:

        No Giovanni, every faulty measurement is Keynesian. Please read my posts more carefully.

    For your inevitable Karaoke appearance in Austria, I recommend “I Have Confidence” or “The Lonely Goatherd”. I see no faster way to endear yourself to the locals.

    Where the hell is your Sunday religion post? I think I’ve been learning a ton from your stuff about Jesus, so get to work!

    (Actually, I’m probably missing some big picture stuff, but whatever.)

    • Bob Murphy says:

      Yeah I couldn’t get into doing it from the hotel lobby. Tonight I think I am going to suck it up and pay for room internet. But now it’s past Sunday.

    I went to Vienna earlier this year, I wrote a little article about it.


    See if you can find “Kurrentgasse” near it there are a few nice bars and a bookshop that has copies of all of many of Hayek & Popper’s more obscure books in English.

    Who’s von Pepe?

    • Bob Murphy says:

      If I told you he would no longer be elusive, which is one of his defining attributes.

    Has Vienna been taken over by the ottomans?

    • Rick Hull says:

      Nope, just my living room.
