Murphy to Debate Another Fed Economist (Updated)


I am going to be one-half of the lunchtime presentation at the Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS) meeting in Atlanta on Thursday February 10th. They have graciously made an option for people who just want to go to the lunch and watch the debate.

Be careful when you go to the link; it looks like it’s saying the date is February 7, but that’s just their cut-off for ticket sales. Also note that if you do sign up for this, you need to print out your payment confirmation to get in the door the day of the event.

According to this preliminary flyer, the lunch seminar goes from noon – 1:30pm (Eastern time). I assume that is still accurate but you may want to double check for yourself. (I’m driving out there the night before so I can afford to have rational ignorance on this matter.)

I am going to say that the Fed is making markets more unstable with its current policies, and of course relate it to my views on the housing bubble.

Dwyer is going to offer the rationale behind the Fed’s current policies.

A Debate on the Federal Reserve: Robert P. Murphy vs. Jerry Dwyer

Robert P. Murphy is a Senior Fellow with the Mises Institute and Research Assistant Professor with the Free Market Institute at Texas Tech University. He is the author of many books including Choice: Cooperation, Enterprise, and Human Action (Independent Institute, 2015) which is a modern distillation of the essentials of Mises's thought for the layperson. Murphy is co-host, with Tom Woods, of the popular podcast Contra Krugman, which is a weekly refutation of Paul Krugman's New York Times column.
