Help Wanted: Austro-Monetary Economist for Congress

Now this is the best news have I heard in a long-time.

Of course, the job opening comes about because of Ron Paul and his new role as chairman of the House Subcommittee on Monetary Policy.

Can you imagine, we may actually hear a question put to Fed Chairman Bernanke about the distortions between the capital goods sector and the consumer goods sector caused by Fed money printing?

Lew Rockewell has posted details of the opening:

Ron Paul has been named chairman of the Domestic Monetary Policy subcommittee, and will have one committee staffer. Ron and his chief of staff Jeff Deist are looking for a smart, young economist, “thoroughly Austrian, and preferably with an advanced degree. The candidate needs strong knowledge of the Fed and monetary policy generally, and must be an effective writer. He or she will be responsible for organizing hearings; summarizing data and Fed actions for Dr. Paul; writing statements; dealing with Financial Services committee staff; and various other tasks.”

Ron and Jeff want an economist with a “strong personality to match their strong analytical skills.” The Fed and its shills are significant opponents, after all. The “salary will be respectable, a solid 5 figures, though depending on experience.”
