Money and Credit

Here's Brian Micklethwait's latest podcast on the current crisis. This one takes the form of a discussion between Brian and fellow libertarians Antoine Clarke and Michael Jennings. Listen to this and be assured that there are some people who understand what's going on and what needs to be done, and not done.

I saw that Guido (another long-term libertarian) is showing a picture of The Theory of Money and Credit by Ludwig von Mises. Mises was the most prominent of the Austrian School of Economics that was briefly mentioned in Brian's podcast. I looked out my copy last night and was rather shocked to note that I'd bought it in 1973! Such a pity that none of our politicians today would spend time reading Mises. How different things could be.

Why would politicians read a work which says, essentially, "Quit your jobs."
