My Posts on the US Recession of 1920–1921 (Updated)

The US recession of 1920–1921 is employed by Austrians and libertarians endlessly to bolster their economic theories, but careful study of this recession shows that libertarians misunderstand it badly, and that they have created a number of myths about it.This can be seen in my updated list of posts below:“The US Recession of 1920–1921: Some Austrian Myths,” October 23, 2010.“There was no US Recovery in 1921 under Austrian Trade Cycle Theory!,” June 25, 2011.“The Depression of 1920–1921: An...

Dave Rubin interviews Yanis Varoufakis

Below. Interview begins at 4.20:[embedded content]This interview is embarrassing, and embarrassing because of Varoufakis’ nonsense. That Yanis Varoufakis thinks that his arguments as former Greek finance minister against EU demands for austerity and a budget surplus in Greece were “Reaganite” is simply bizarre. Wasn’t Yanis in favour of Keynesian stimulus and debt restructuring?And, even worse, Varoufakis now says the influences on his economic thinking include Hayek and Mises, as much as...

Alt Left Links

Sick of the modern cultural left? Sick of the regressive left? Sick of leftist political correctness, identity politics, and SJW insanity, but you still think of yourself as left-wing? Well, there’s no need to become a conservative, because there’s now an Alternative Left / Alt Left, with a small but growing internet presence. I identify with what I would call the “Realist Left,” but I am happy for this to be seen as within a broad “Alt Left” movement.Here is an updated list of sites:Alt...

Deirdre McCloskey on Liberalism, Trump and Free Trade

She is interviewed by Dave Rubin here:[embedded content]I have to admit that I don’t know much about Deirdre McCloskey, but on the basis of this interview, she strikes me as an absurd pro-free market ideologue.Let’s take a couple of the points raised in this video:(1) she claims that the original arguments in favour of the minimum wage were to exclude blacks, immigrants and women from the labour force. I have no idea if this is correct, but let’s assume it is. She then jumps to a pathetic...
