Austrian Economics versus the Mainstream
Over at Northwood University’s ‘s blog, “In Defense of Capitalism & Human Progress,” I have posted, “Austrian Economics versus the Mainstream: An Interview with Richard M. Ebeling.”
It is the text of an interview that I have done with Adrian Ravier, professor of economics at Universidad Francisco Marroquin in Guatemala. It will appear in Spanish in a volume that he is editing called, “The Austrian Economists: Personal Histories and Ideas,” which will be published in Madrid, Spain in 2011.
I try to explain the meaning and premises of Austrian Economics, while also comparing the Austrians to the Chicago School and the Keynesians, and James Buchanan’s Public Choice approach. As well as a little bit of personal biography about how I came to Austrian Economics and found it to be better than the mainstream.
