George, Say It Isn’t So

The proverbial grapevine is often unreliable, and I very much hope that a story just transmitted to me is false. At the recently concluded Cato University, the tale has it, the well-known monetary economist George Selgin displayed a picture of Murray Rothbard and asked whether anyone in the class knew who it was. No one did, and Selgin said this was good, because all of his ideas were wrong. Would Selgin include in this claim, the person who transmitted the story to me wondered, Rothbard’s praise for Selgin’s paper on praxeology?
