“Who are these Austrian-school economists?” asks the Economic Times of India.
“We are the oldest school of thought and we are still the smallest but we are clearly the fastest-growing school,” says Prof Mark Thornton, an American economist of the Austrian School.
GP Manish, a professor of Indian origin and member of the Troy University, is one of the instructors at a seminar for high schoolers and their teachers in the US on ‘What has Government Done to Our Money?’ The course was also offered online by the Mises Academy, named after Ludwig von Mises, one of the Austrian School’s best known names. As the institute website puts it, “The economic crisis we are in is largely due to unsound money” and the intent of the course is to help young minds “make future financial decisions that take into account the government’s monetary meddling.”
Bookstore sales by Mises are up several hundred percent and the top 15 visitors to the site are from countries including Portugal, US, Bangladesh, China, Pakistan, Brazil and India. Mises Institutes have popped up all over the world and Google search for ‘Mises Institute’ generates over 2.6 million results.
Meanwhile, Paul Krugman responds…
While running as the Libertarian Party’s candidate for president in 1988, Ron Paul appeared on William F. Buckley’s “Firing Line.” There, the feisty libertarian doctor and the iconic founder of the National Review debated many issues, including whether the FBI and the CIA should be abolished, as Paul proposed.
The whole show is fascinating, but the debate over the FBI and CIA begins at 6:18 and continues into the second video. Also interesting to note, Paul’s fans back then were apparently as rabid — or, if you prefer, intensely passionate — in the pre-Internet age as they are in today’s plugged-in society. Buckley mentions at the beginning of the show that he had been deluged with mail urging him to bring Paul on the show.
“Our guest today is in any event welcome,” Buckley said opening the program, “but I should record that in 20 years I have not before been hectored by so many letters, in this case urging me to invite Dr. Ron Paul for this hour.”
