Austrian Economics in the Indian Journal of Economics and Business


The Indian Journal of Economics and Business recently published a revised version of my testimony to Congress in Vol 11, no. 3, December 2012 with the title “Fractional Reserve Banking and Central Banking As Sources of Economic Instability: The Sound Money Alternative.” An early version appeared as a Mises Daily.

Thanks to the Mises Institute for permission for use. I thank my friend, a founding editor of the journal, Kishore Kulkarni, for inviting me to submit a revised version for publication in this refereed outlet. The Journal has been receptive to Austrian contributions. In 2007 the Journal published an issue devoted to Austrian analysis, edited by Alex Padilla and myself, “Special Issue Symposium on Economic Development, Transition Economics, and Globalization: Austrian and Public Choice Perspectives” with contributions by Shenoy (perhaps her last refereed journal contributions), Block, Salerno, Powell, Leeson, Coyne, and Boettke among others. Block and Barnett (2008) published in the journal on a return to gold with no government gold and I with Glahe and Yetter (2004) had a paper in IJEB on ABCT applied to Japan and U.S.

For Austrian Scholars looking for an outlet to present in the eastern part of the world, you might consider the IJEB sponsored conference December 2013, the INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS ISSUES in Pune, India.

See the call for papers at: First Call for Papers for December 2013 ConferenceOrganized sessions are encouraged and welcome. Contact Dr. Kulkarni at kulkarnk@msudenver.edu.

John P. Cochran (1949-2015) was emeritus dean of the Business School and emeritus professor of economics at Metropolitan State University of Denver and coauthor with Fred R. Glahe of The Hayek-Keynes Debate: Lessons for Current Business Cycle Research. He was also a senior fellow of the Mises Institute and served on the editorial board of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics.
