Funny Attack on Mises

I usually ignore attacks on Mises from low-traffic web sites (and it’s a little old), but this one is just too inane to ignore. At IFA Magazine, which bills itself a magazine for “today’s discerning financial and investment professional,” there’s a small attack piece on Mises which would be funny if I didn’t know that some people might actually believe the stuff repeated here.

This sentence tells you all you need to know:

Philosopher, economist, sociologist, classical liberal and founder of the Austrian School which later produced Friedrich Hayek, the ‘father of monetarism’.

Actually, I’m not entirely sure that first sentence is in fact a sentence.  But whatever. The important thing here is that I just learned from the sentence fragment that Hayek is the “father of monetarism.” Fascinating.

For a good time, read the rest of this devastating attack at the heart of Austrian economics, which also asserts that Mises was wrong about economic calculation and Soviet-style socialism.

    Remind me to not invest in the UK. The GBP may be worth jack soon. Oh wait…
