In Defense of Capitalism & Human Progress

Richard Ebeling emails:
Dear Bob:
I have put up a new post on Northwood's blog, "In Defense of Capitalism & Human Progress," with the title, "Austrian Economics versus the Mainstream: An Interview with Richard M. Ebeling."

It is the text of an interview that I have done with Adrian Ravier, professor of economics at Universidad Francisco Marroquin in Guatemala. It will appear in Spanish in a volume that he is editing called, "The Austrian Economists: Personal Histories and Ideas," which will be published in Madrid, Spain in 2011.

I try to explain the meaning and premises of Austrian Economics, while also comparing the Austrians to the Chicago School and the Keynesians, and James Buchanan's Public Choice approach. As well as a little bit of personal biography about how I came to Austrian Economics and found it to be better than the mainstream.
The full interview is here.
