Jeffrey Tucker sounds drunk and i like it!







One of the chief reasons I feel embarrassed that the LvMI is  considered “libertarian” is because of the racists and homophobes who use their libertarianism as a mask to spew their shitty beliefs.

name names.

So you’re denying the fact that Hoppe and DiLorenzo aren’t openly homophobic?

That they aren’t just using the LvMI as a soapbox to spew their vitriol?

I’m pretty sure there’s a reason why Jeffery Tucker doesn’t affiliate with the LvMI anymore.  There’s a reason why other Austrian economists don’t affiliate with the LvMI anymore.  And it surely isn’t because they disagree over economics, market anarchism or the NAP.

I wasn’t aware of any homophobia from DiLorenzo but I would agree (based on what I’ve read of Hoppe which is admittedly almost nothing) that Hoppe seems to me to be a particularly repugnant bigot who generally fits the description given in the original post.

I wasn’t “denying” anything. As usual, you’re putting words into my mouth and reading into my comments motivations that simply weren’t there.

I was literally just asking for specific people to whom you were referring.

I thought you were going to talk about Walter Block, Lew Rockwell, Thomas Woods and Robert Wenzel. 

only one I’d agree with there is Wenzel. But Wenzel is a CIA plant anyway.

I wasn’t making any accusations. I just thought that those guys would be on Cory’s list. I personally enjoy Walter Block’s no-holds-barred approach (If you WANT to be a slave, why should anyone stop you?!!?).

But I do agree with you on Wenzel as a twaty individual. CIA planet? I don’t know, but it’s very possible.

Thank you, sir.

Mises, Rothbard, Friedman and Hayek in Russian

Of course, LALiberty came to the rescue and found me a great resource for free-market, anti-state books translated to Russian:

Here’s Mises - Human Action in Russian: is a great resource for russian books, articles, videos, and other media

Here’s Rothbard - For a New Freedom in Russian:

Thoreau - On Civil Disobedience

Milton Friedman - Free to Choose

Hayek - Road to Serfdom

Norberg - In Defense of Global Capitalism in Russian:

Just going leave these here for reference. 

I’m actually surprised that there isn’t a yet. Maybe I’ll found the Mises Armenia chapter when I move there. 

I recently befriended a bunch of anarchists in Armenia and they all barely speak English and can’t read English at all. I’m trying to get them to move off the Anarcho-communist agenda and they seem open to it but in Eastern Europe, ex-USSR states, they don’t have any An-Cap influence. 

I’m trying to get them to read Mises, Rothbard, etc, anyone have any links to any of their works translated into Russian or Armenian?

The History of Austrian Economics with the legendary Israel Kirzner

Economics Joke


Keynes and Krugman are walking. Keynes says, “I’ll pay you $5,000 to eat a dog turd.” Krugman does it. Keynes doesn’t have any evil savings and didn’t think Krugman would do it: The next day he begs for the money back. Krugman says, “I’ll give it back if you eat a turd.” Keynes does it. Krugman says, “That was stupid: No one made money and we’ve both eaten sh*t.” Keynes says: “But we boosted GDP by $10,000.”


Anonymous asked: Sup Coach, I'm the guy who sent you a message last time asking about my ECON paper. Again, do you have any example social science papers that I could follow? I saw your post with the MEME and decided not to respond, but it looks like I still need your help. The goal of the paper is to show that I understand the technical models (AD/AS/Loanable Funds/Planned Investments/etc.) using macroeconomic domestic and/or international issues in the past 6 months.

I’m not sure what, exactly, you’re looking for (what you’re asking for is pretty broad is that’s why it’s an entire class and not a blog post).

 How much time do you have? Read Economics in One Lesson and Human Action.


The Keynesian Architects of the U.S. Warfare State | Joseph T. Salerno (by misesmedia)

From Ludwig von Mises Institute:

The Donald M. Rembert lecture, presented at the 2012 Mises Institute Supporters Summit: “The Truth About War: A Revisionist Approach”. Recorded at Callaway Gardens, Georgia, on 27 October 2012.

Music by Kevin MacLeod.

I love all of the Mises videos, they are all highly informative but I especially like this one for two reasons. For one, it simplifies and explains the backbone of our Keynesian economic philosophy; Military spending and the Keynesian multiplier. However, I mainly like this video because Rembert incorporated the insane video of Krugman talking about how an Alien invasion would be the greatest thing for our economy. I hope Krugman never goes away.

Murray Rothbard on the Mises Development of Business Cycle

In 20 years, if we save this economy and this country, it will be very interesting to read a book on how Keynes nearly destroyed this country because we choose the wrong economy system and how the economic historians came through at the last minute to save it. I’m guessing Tom Woods would be the author. 

Economics, like logic and mathematics, is a display of abstract reasoning. Economics can never be experimental and empirical. The economist does not need an expensive apparatus for the conduct of his studies. What he needs is the power to think clearly and to discern in the wilderness of events what is essential from what is merely accidental. — Ludwig Von Mises, Human Action (via laliberty)
