  • The Real Estate Bubble and Owners' Equivalent Rent

    Economists of the Austrian School understand that monetary expansion has the effect of making things more expensive than they otherwise would have been. At the root of the real-estate bubble was Federal Reserve monetary expansion funneled into the purchase of mortgages by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and...

  • 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. I think other Austrian economist types will agree with most of it and still find new stuff...

  • Re: The Myth of Economic Bubbles

    This thread has been heading in the wrong direction since the OP. The simple fact of the matter is that the OP asks the wrong question. There is a clear distinction between the Keynesian bubble and the Austrian trade cycle. To the Keynesians and other (though not all) mainstream macroeconomists, bubbles...

  • Re: Questions about inflation...

    With regards to question #1 So your saying that the dotcom bubble completed its recession cause I thought that the dotcom bubble never fully burst. In that case, the housing bubble and dotcom bubble have no connection so there was no bubble substitution.

  • Is gold one giant bubble?

Similarly, he described the bursting of the dot-com bubble. In both cases assets were bid up by speculators with no regard for their underlying value as...

  • Natural economic order

    First of all, I would like to introduce myself. I am a computer programmer from the Netherlands. I am working on a theory of money and banking derived from the "Natural Economic Order" of Silvio Gesell. "Natural Economic Order" clearly states that the root the economic and monetary...

  • Federal Reserve & Bank of England

    There is a large case against the Fed, it's excess credit creation has led to bubbles, they burst, which lead us to painful times. My question is this the same case for Britain and the Bank of England? Our property bubble has been massive and has started to pop, I'm not actually sure if it's...
