Wenzel Makes the Walter Block Required Reading List

Prof. Walter Block has been kind enough to forward this email to me, which he has sent to his students:
Dear  Students: 
Two more VERY good essays on the minimum wage just came in, one pro, one con. Please add these to your list of required readings. 
 Krugman, Paul. 2013; “Raise that wage.”February, 18;  
Wenzel, Robert. 2013. “The Wrong Way to Argue Against Minimum Wage Laws.” 
Second to the Rothbard piece below, the one by Wenzel is just about the best thing I’ve ever seen on this issue.
        Best regards, 
Walter E. Block, Ph.D.
Harold E. Wirth Eminent Scholar Endowed Chair and Professor of Economics

The Rothbard article mentioned in Dr. Block's letter is here:


  1. Tear it up, RW!

    I predict that your speech at the Fed will outlive any of Krugman's works. Call it a hunch. ; )

    1. Is that you, Igor??

      RW, Big Time!!
