Gallaway and Vedder on Stabilization Policy

The Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics


Volume 9, No. 1 (Spring 2006)


What sets Austrians apart from mainstream economists is methodology and consequent analyses. The first section contains an analysis of their methods, which are found wanting. Although G&V “tip their hats” to Austrian economics, in section two, “Incompatibility with Austrian Economics,” we challenge their claim that their analysis is compatible therewith. In the conclusion we make some final statements.

What is the Mises Institute?

The Mises Institute is a non-profit organization that exists to promote teaching and research in the Austrian School of economics, individual freedom, honest history, and international peace, in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Murray N. Rothbard. 

Non-political, non-partisan, and non-PC, we advocate a radical shift in the intellectual climate, away from statism and toward a private property order. We believe that our foundational ideas are of permanent value, and oppose all efforts at compromise, sellout, and amalgamation of these ideas with fashionable political, cultural, and social doctrines inimical to their spirit.
