Larry was a committed Austrian economist and passionate defender of the liberal economic order. At the time of his passing, he was a leading advocate of free banking and critic of central banking. A prolific and engaging writer, he authored many scholarly and popular articles on a wide variety of topics, ranging from the economics and institutions of monetary freedom to the role of privateering in national defense. While he contributed to the advancement of economic theory and political economy, as a vocational economist he saw his primary mission as educating his students and the public at large in the principles of a purely contractual society.
