5. What Germans predicted in 1910.
6. "It's the best critique of street dance I've ever seen": the Amish visit London.
7. New Thomas Sargent paper on free banking.
How does Tom Sargent manage to write a 35 page essay on free banking and not cite George Selgin or Larry White???
CONSIDERING THAT Germans invented the concept of fear of the future…
Lorsque vous avez envie de pisser , vous avez envie de pisser.
Mike Sproul was the only advocate of real bills I could remember coming across on the internet.
Sargent writes that Milton Friedman was “tempted” to change his mind. I don’t think he was merely tempted, he actually did change his mind. This paper from George Selgin doesn’t mention the “Chicago Plan” featuring 100% reserves, but does indicate that he ceased to see the necessity of a role for government/central bank.
Does anyone have a link to Sargent’s companion paper as described in that piece? I could not find it on his website.
I love Charlie Brooker.
I hate going through three steps to post “I love Charlie Brooker”
3. Population density.
I have read thousands of papers… Sargents’ makes me want to read more of his. Well researched, well constructed, insightful, and thought-provoking. Makes me think the critisisms above about not taking into consideration other papers was done on purpose.
This is a great article. I hadn’t known any of this stuff baout Phish. You should do this about more artists!
