Richard Ebeling: My Life as an Austrian Economist and My Discovery of the "Lost Papers" of Ludwig von Mises

Richard Ebeling emails:
Dear Bob:

I have posted a new piece on Northwood University's blog, "In Defense of Capitalism & Human Progress," entitled "Adventure in Economics: An Interview with Richard M. Ebeling."

It is the text of an interview that appeared in the February 2011 issue of the "Lara-Murphy Report."

I explain the great change in the fortunes of Austrian Economics today, compared to forty years ago; the importance of Austrian Economics in the current political climate of fiscal and monetary crisis; the reasons for optimism if good men will stand up and be counted; and provide a brief account of how I discovered Ludwig von Mises' "lost papers" and their importance for today.

I thought you might find it of interest.
The full interview is here.

  1. Ahh, the Austrians...ever so vocal to attack labor cost and over regulation (not a bad thing) but never to apt to attack intellectual property theft, inequities in labor standards, and soft/hard merchantilism practiced against the US by other countries. It is an incomplete economic theory sold as a gospel of salvation, with backing from trans-national banking interest who benefit from the ability to move capital instantaneously to exploit whatever 3rd world hell hole suits the need of the moment.
