‘Wasn’t Dr. Paul great today!’

Email Print

Writes Craig Spanton: “Thanks: For everything I have learned as a student of Austrian Economics for the past 15 years. Sorry: For thinking ‘Oh no, please Ron Paul, monetary policy is not part of a winning presidential campaign.’

“I feel like I am the guy in the office ([brokerage], where you would think some economic knowledge would exist) who knows the secret that nobody else knows. I just can’t thank you (and the whole Mises community) enough for what I have learned. It is fun to have friends and colleagues say ‘Damn, Craig, you were right on all this, huh?’

“By the way I no longer allow people to talk about Republican versus Democrat to me. I just tell them they are both interventionists and I am a non-interventionist, in markets, in foreign policy, in your bedroom, etc.

“Watching these pols and talking heads with no true belief system try to decide what to think is quite the show, isn’t it?
