  1. We agree with Nobel Laureate Robert Lucas, who when asked about Austrian economics replied that he was in favor of good economics. Which is not to say that Austrian economics are not good, but that we take good economics wherever we may find it. Lucas, in fact, gained a lot of insight through reading Hayek, and we have as well.

    As for the gold standard, it has the advantage of reining in the power of the Federal Reserve, although a broader standard consisting of a diverse basket of commodities would probably be preferable to only gold.
