==> An excerpt from Guido Hulsmann’s introduction to (what we know as) The Theory of Money & Credit. Incidentally, I wrote a Study Guide for this book, and believe me, it’s not as intimidating as it first appears. If you have always wanted to be the type of person to read it, but thought you weren’t smart enough, I would encourage you to give it a shot with my SG to help.

==> I critique the Brookings Institution on their call for a carbon tax.

==> It would be easy for me to dismiss this Stephan Kinsella essay by saying, “Sure the president has flying killer robots, but at least we have legal porn!” but I am not that kind of jerk.

==> Great piece by David R. Henderson on Rand Paul’s filibuster (which I totally missed while carousing in the Caribbean).

==> I can tolerate Scott Sumner when he’s bashing Keynesianism.

==> I am friends with Glen (he was my TA at NYU) but come on

UPDATE: Just to clarify, Glen is older than me. When I was a student at NYU, he was the TA of a micro class, and my favorite TA in fact. Also, I am fully aware of the irony of me complaining about an economics project involving the undead.

    1. It’s been a long cold winter without Major_Freedom’s comments on The Money Illusion.

    2. Wenzel is down on Rand Paul but Raimondo is not. Raimondo quotes Limbaugh making a near-Ron Paulian foreign policy analysis.

      I promised not to post there until April 1st, or until after the debate between Murphy and Sumner takes place, whichever comes…last I think.

    Now, Bob, I don’t think you are any kind of jerk! don’t be so hard on yourself!
