Keith Weiner's PhD Thesis Available for Download


As many of our readers probably know, there are a few topics regarding which we are at odds with Dr. Antal Fekete's 'New Austrian School' (to name two of the more important ones that have previously been discussed in these pages: fractional reserve banking and the real bills doctrine).


Nevertheless, Keith Weiner, the president of the US Gold Standard Institute and a follower of Dr. Fekete's school, has become a regular and valued contributor to this site. It is our hope that the occasional juxtaposition of points on which we disagree serves as an encouragement for readers to carefully think through the arguments that are presented and helps to foster debate (we realize of course that quite a few of our readers are already au fait with the subjects concerned).


There are a number of sub-groups in what one might term the 'Austrian tent' that disagree on certain topics. However, what unites all of them is unwavering support for the free market economy and individual liberty, as well as the rejection of statism, violence and coercion.


This is all we really ask of our guest authors as it were. We will obviously never be a forum for interventionist and statist ideas, but we have no problem with publishing articles by authors who support the above mentioned fundamental principles but disagree with us on finer points of economic theory.


In this spirit, we present Keith's PhD thesis “A Free Market for Goods, Services and Money” (pdf).


We can assure our readers that it is a very interesting and thought-provoking read. We will endeavor to publish a critical review as time permits.

      Forensic Analysis of Fed Action on Silver Price The last few days of trading in silver have been a wild ride.
