  • What Austrian economics books do you reccomend for a beginner?

    I'm relatively new to researching economics, so I guess you could say I'm a beginner in my understanding of economics. I've been a libertarian for a couple of years, but I'm only in high school, so my knowledge is somewhat limited. So far I've read The Revolution by Ron Paul, Economics...

  • Re: Internet Bubble - Caused by Government?

    [quote] Was the famous internet tech bubble caused directly by government/central banking?[/quote] Yes. The question is which way it caused it. The Rothbardians think that it, and all other economic crises at all times with no effort to check the actual facts, was caused by the Federal Reserve inflating...

  • Libertarian/AC Independent Film looking for Online Marketing Manager

  • Re: Austrian & Keynesian Theories Vs. Mathematical Facts

    Hello Lilburne, Thanks for responding. Let me take a satb as answering your questions: "No. Let's say you borrow that money from me. Over the course of the year, you do work for me for which I offer you a $60 salary. On the last day of the year, I don't pay you the $60 in gold; I just deduct...

It has clearly been granted a monopoly status by Title 12 and the BOG has isolated itself from any identified source of control, including Congress, the President (except to appoint a Governor from a preapproved list), and the GAO. And the...

  • Re: A big Fed misconception

    You ask the question: “Is the Federal Reserve privately owned or a government agency?” You must identify what part of the Fed you are talking about. If you are talking about the twelve regional FR Banks, they are normally construed to be, and have been adjudicated to be, privately owned....
