This is a reminder thread for various topics we talked about in our discussions and didn't provide a link at the time.


Here's some oldies:
- George Carlin on voting (bad language)
- article on bloggers and journalists
- For those interested in the topic of private roads, Walter Block's book is available online in full: The Privatization of Roads and Highways (pdf)

We talked a lot about good videos for introducing people to this School of thought, here are few full video lessons (some over an hour long):

An Introduction to Austrian Economics by Hans-Hermann Hoppe and Jörg Guido Hülsmann


(A list of good short videos is upcoming.)

In the last meet, we talked among many other topics about the removing of traffic signs and other controlling elements and achieving more safety. Read a summary of the concept or see the WP page.

We also touched on the topic of racism and how the free market can deal with it, and here is mentioned one nice example.

Perhaps much more important, we recommended the works of Frédéric Bastiat to a few people, especially The Law - and there is more.
- read in English or
- read in German!

This time, we did not have a set topic, but meandered between several, watching videos and so on.

One classic we mentioned was the old Economics in One Lesson from Henry Hazlitt. Another was F.A. Hayek's Road to Serfdom (note: abridged version - if you find a full one online let us know).

One of the last discussions was about speculators, and handily enough comes an article on Mises.org - Defending the Speculator from Walter Block. Enjoy!

And where there's one, there's more - like the article It's the Speculators, Stupid! from Malte Tobias Kahler. Short but neat.

Wir haben ja viele male über die schlimme Lage öknonomischen Denkens in Deutschland gejammert. Da ist aber nicht alles ohne Hoffnung:

Ridiculed By Americans Everywhere, Krugman Now Threatens, Gives Unsolicited Advice To Germany, Pisses Entire Nation Off

Etwas scharf geschrieben, es zeigt aber, dass hierzulande auf etwas doch vorsichtig geschaut wird. :)

Und hier ein Buch, worüber wir vorhin gesprochen haben - Pearl Harbor: The Seeds and Fruits of Infamy

Ein paar Male waren schon die Credit Default Swaps angebissen, aber wir sind nicht wirklich tief in das Thema eingedrungen.

Sieht mal auf den Artikel "The Social Function of Credit-Default Swaps", der eher sympatisch Sicht dieser Wertpapiere darstellt, und Second Thoughts on Sovereign Credit-Default Swaps, die etwas kritischer ist.

Wie versprochen, hat tip to Mike: San Francisco - The Worst-Run Big City in the U.S.


Dazu, die Studie über Kinder und Time Preference: Don’t! The secret of self-control.


Und letztens etwas für die Raucher: Smoking is 'good for your memory and concentration'. Glaubt's aber lieber nicht. :)
