    I’m pleased to say that White is also one of the tiny number of non-Austrian economists who takes my “productivity norm” argument seriously, having cited it in several BIS papers (see, for instance, < a href=http://www.bis.org/publ/work205.pdf”Is Price Stability Enough?. Maybe his having seen the crisis coming will get some others on board!

    Sorry for the botched linked above. Here is one that should work.

  3. Greg Ransom says:

    George, I noticed that myself .. perhaps not an incidental fact. I wonder if White learned his Hayek in the first instance from you ..

    Maybe I’ll drop him a line and ask.
