  • Are overvaluated currencies the problem?

    So, I have a teacher that says that Brazil should devaluate his currency in order to grow its manufacturing industry. As Peter Schiff previously pointed out, the USD is more and more devaluated towards other currencies and the trade deficit is bigger and bigger. So I told that to my teacher. The answer...

  • Can anyone help me deconstruct this Statist nonsense?

    "since the new deal and Keynesianism failed to end the great depression" That's patently and demonstrably not true. Government spending during WW2 put people to work, put money in their pockets, stimulated private spending and investment, created demand for more products, created the middle...

  • Why I Am Not An Austrian Economist by Brian Caplan

    I have a friend who doesn't have the knowledge yet to answer this guy and I can't really check it over for another few hours, although I'm sure it's full of fallacies, false dichotomies and unsupported assertions - I find that non-Austrians are generally devoid of the ability to think...

  • Resources on the Austrian-Keynesian-Chicagoan Divide

    I have been having some conversations with friends that are immersed in the dominant economic schools of Keynesianism and Chicagoasm. It tends to end up with fallacious criticisms such as that the dominant schools are dominant for a reason, and things of this nature: "‎"To all of you Austrian...

  • Looking for feedback on document

    I have been writing up stuff that I thought was interesting and related to the current economic mess. It has gotten a bit long but I really think it has many interesting things that I did not understand a year ago.

  • Understanding Stimulus Spending

    I understand the need for sound money. That hit me as clear as a punch on the nose, so there’s no need to go into that at all. What I want to do is understand why carefully targeted ‘stimulus spending’ is necessarily bad, both under a gold standard and under fiat money. I’m going...
