From David Mamet’s new book, The Secret Knowledge: On the Dismantling of American Culture.

One Response to David Mamet’s Revelation

  1. Roger McKinney says:

    Greg, did you catch the mention of Hayek in the BIS paper “Global imbalances and the financial crisis (Claudio Borio and Piti Disyatat) available at http://www.economist.com/blogs/freeexchange/2011/06/economics?

    “And while Wicksell saw inflation as the inevitable outcome, others, such as Hayek (1933), argued that the distortion would be reflected in relative prices, in this case between consumer and investment goods. This suggests that it would be important to develop formal analytical models in which such a gap is reflected also in unsustainable asset price booms.”

    Is the BIS becoming a bastion of Austrian econ?
