    Open Letter to Bryan Caplan

    Today marks the tenth anniversary of my open letter to Bryan Caplan. I wait for a reply. http://www.axiomaticeconomics.com/caplan.pdf In the meantime, it amuses me to see that he wrote an open letter to an “-ism.” Who did he think was going to reply? I suppose now he is calling himself a...

    Why isn’t Euclid’s Elements taught anymore?

    I recently posted a paper at Research Gate titled, “How Math Can Be Taught Better.” https://www.researchgate.net/publication/282947903_How_Math_Can_Be_Taught_Better My section on geometry includes an appalling example of a geometry textbook totally screwing up a proof that would have been...

    Critique of Tony Lawson on Neoclassical Economics

    Critique of Tony Lawson on Neoclassical Economics I review Tony Lawson’s paper, "What is this ‘school’ called neoclassicaleconomics?" Varoufakis and Arnsperger also wrote a paper asking, “What is Neoclassical Economics?” I review it here. They define neoclassical as methodological...

    Critique of Austrian Economics

    From 1900??? People who know how to read saw "1930" clearly printed in the OP. But that didn't prevent you from posting dozens of comments about Hayek, supported by data compiled in a country on the other side of the world at a time when Hayek was in diapers. And now, dozens of comments...

    Critique of Austrian Economics

    In 1930, the London School of Economics invited Prof. Hayek of Vienna to present a series of lectures. At great expense they paid him to take leave of his university position and travel all the way to London. And they did so on such short notice that he arrived barely able to speak the...

    Is Ron Paul a stalking horse for Stephen Zarlenga?

    Observe that, while publically pitting the right-wing Paul against the left-wing Kucinich, in their internal documents they casually refer to Ron Paul as a bought-and-paid-for congressman that is promoting Stephen Zarlenga’s American Monetary Act for him. When Cook says that Ron Paul made...

    Can Peer Reviewing Be A Logical Fallacy?

    You are using “peer reviewed” as though it were synonymous with “refereed.” Research Gate is peer reviewed because your peers – all seven million of them – review your paper. In a refereed journal, you only have to get past two out of three referees and, while you may not know their names, you...

    Can Peer Reviewing Be A Logical Fallacy?

    The alternative is Research Gate. And it is not in second place. It has over 7 million members, about 95% of all active scientists in the world. But, if you are a global warming denier, I wouldn’t get too excited. Research Gate checks your credentials. You are not allowed to register unless...

    Critique of Austrian Economics

    My paper is about theoretical economics and all of the 50+ books and journal articles that I cite are about theoretical economics. There is nothing in there about current events in America at the time that the articles were written. For instance, Keynes was directly involved in the management...

    The Return of the "Golden Age" -- a short story

    For the first and possibly last time ever, I “liked” a JP Hochbaum comment. The Austrians despise me, probably even more so than the socialists, Marxists, Debt Virus proponents and other people in whose pots I have pointed out the glaring cracks. Critique of Austrian Economics From 1930 To...

    The Return of the "Golden Age" -- a short story

    HR 2768 is called the Debt Crisis Resolution Act because Ron Paul claimed that TARP had caused the U.S. Government to take on ruinous levels of debt which they would be unable to pay unless HR 2768 was passed. Of course, this was not true, but the fact that all of Congressman Paul’s propaganda...

    Marxism is a brilliant system…

    I'm not a creditor... I'm an idiot! :lol: Don't you remember you own invective? Half the time you are hurling insults at me and the other half you are vainly claiming that no insults have ever been uttered - no how, no way. But the one thing you are not doing is addressing the substance of...

    The Return of the "Golden Age" -- a short story

    I wouldn't call debasing the currency a solution, but Congressman Paul did introduce legislation that was meant to be an alternative to TARP: https://www.congress.gov/bill/112th-congress/house-bill/2768/text In this thread I offer an explanation for what motivated Congressman Paul to propose...
