The Louis E. Carabini Distinguished Lecture, presented at the 2012 Mises Institute Supporters Summit
This year is an election year and an important topic to many Americans is the economy.
For all those with a penchant for crunching manipulated numbers and wish to make a change by taking on the Fed (ironically, making some fiat in the process), this may be your chance: Ron Paul, chairman of the Domestic Monetary Policy subcommittee, and his chief of staff Jeff Diest are seeking to hire a young economist, “thoroughly Austrian, and preferably with an advanced degree. The candidate needs strong knowledge of the Fed and monetary policy generally, and must be an effective writer. He or she will be responsible for organizing hearings; summarizing data and Fed actions for Dr. Paul; writing statements; dealing with Financial Services committee staff; and various other tasks. Sorry Joe LaVorgna, despite your ubercreative “weather worker adjustment, you are on the exclusion list.
On Tuesday, Rep. Ron Paul and Lew Rockwell joined Judge Napolitano on Freedom Watch to discuss the Federal Reserve and war.
