The trillion dollar coin is an utterly idiotic idea

The trillion dollar coin is an utterly idiotic idea

Following US political debate these days is like following a bad parody of a third world banana republic and even though I the deepest respect for Americans and US in general I must say it is hard not to agree with those Europeans that shake their heads these days and say "they are stupid those Americans". Well, it is not the Americans - it is their politicians and you could say a similar thing about Europe.

Daniel Lin is teaching macro! Lets introduce his students to the IS/LM+ model

This semester professor Daniel Lin is teaching a class in Macro at the American University and I have a tradition to interfere with how Daniel should teach his students - so I will not let down the opportunity to do it once again.

Wrap-up: My Free Banking related posts

Economic slowdown in China or the euro crisis is not important - the only thing important is the fiscal cliff (blah, blah...)

I have not participated in the debated - last time I wrote about the Cantillon effect was actually in my Master thesis on Austrian Business Cycle theory in the mid-1990s and to be frank I have not made up my mind entirely on this discussion. Therefore, I am happy Justin Merrill have written a guest post for my blog on the topic.

JPIrving on why not to fear the fiscal cliff

Turn on the TV and watch five minutes of CNBC or Bloomberg TV these days and you get the impression that the world is coming to an end as a result of the fiscal cliff. However, the contrast to this is the development in the US financial markets. Yes, there are some jitters in the markets, but the market developments do not exactly indicate that we falling into the abyss in a couple of days.
