Advocates for Self-Government - Libertarian Education: Richard M. Ebeling - Libertarian
Includes profile, photograph and quote
"... Richard M. Ebeling has earned a laudable reputation as a professor, writer, and editor. But what may turn out to be his most memorable contribution to the history of libertarian thought is an event that, were it a movie, might be called Indiana Jones Meets Ludwig von Mises. It's a bit of intellectual archeology that involves Nazis, the Soviet Army, and documents buried in a secret Moscow archive for five decades. ... Ebeling has also consulted with the government of Lithuania and with members of the Russian Parliament on free-market reforms and the privatization of socialist economies."

Writings

An American Empire! If You Want It instead of Freedom, Part 1, Future of Freedom, Apr 2003
Examines Garet Garrett's 1952 essay "The Rise of Empire" and contrasts it with Charles Krauthammer's "The Unipolar Moment Revisited" and the concept of "unilateralism" espoused by him
"Fifty years ago, the classical liberal author and journalist Garet Garrett published a collection of essays called The People's Pottage (1953). In the midst of the Korean War, he tried to persuade the American people that the United States was on a new course that conflicted with the original conception of the nation. ... 'The new unilateralism argues explicitly and unashamedly for maintaining unipolarity, for sustaining America's unrivaled dominance for the foreseeable future.' And at the end of his article, paraphrasing Benjamin Franklin, he says to his readers, 'History has given you an empire, if you will keep it.'"
Aristotle Understood the Importance of Property, 27 Sep 2016
Discusses Aristotle's views on private property and property rights (contrasting them with those of Plato), the "ends" of human life, economics ("household management"), wealth acquisition, prices, money and related topics
"When we turn to another famous ancient Greek philosopher, Aristotle (384 B.C. – 322 B.C.), we find little of the political regimentation that characterizes his teacher, Plato. ... While Aristotle's answers were incomplete and often misdirected, as well as incorrect, he at least was among the first to ask the types of questions that, centuries later, became part of the heart of economic analysis and understanding."
Book Review: Forgotten Lessons, Future of Freedom, Mar 1996
Review of Forgotten Lessons: Selected Essays of John T. Flynn by edited by Gregory P. Pavlik, 1995
"One of those few who never became one of FDR's global New Dealers was John T. Flynn. ... Now, thanks to Gregory Pavlik of The Foundation for Economic Education, readers have an opportunity to rediscover John T. Flynn and his anti-New Deal, anti-big government insights. Mr. Pavlik has edited Forgotten Lessons, a collection of some of Flynn's best essays that were written in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s on a variety of both domestic and foreign policy topics."

Book Review: Hayek, Future of Freedom, Jul 1999
Review of Hayek: A Commemorative Album compiled by John Raybould, 1999
"He soon became embroiled in a heated debate with Keynes, in which Keynes argued for monetary and fiscal 'stimulus' to end the depression, instead of Hayek's free-market solution. ... At the same time, Hayek began amplifying Mises's criticisms of socialism, explaining that a developed system of division of labor is just too complex to be controlled and directed through any form of central planning. ... This argument culminated in Hayek's most influential book, The Road to Serfdom, published in 1944 ..."

Book Review: J. B. Say, Future of Freedom, May 1998
Review of J.B. Say: An Economist in Troubled Times, writings selected and translated by R.R. Palmer, 1997
"Whatever economic freedom we enjoy in the world today is due, to a great extent, to the ideas and efforts of the classical liberals and economists of the first half of the 19th century. Inspired by the 18th-century writings of the French physiocrats and Scottish moral philosophers (David Hume and Adam Smith), they forcefully and insightfully demonstrated the errors and inefficiencies in mercantilism (the 18th-century system of government planning and regulation). ... It's unfortunate that if Say were alive today, he could not be as praising of America as an example for the world as he could be 195 years ago."
Book Review: Out of Work, Future of Freedom, Oct 1993
Review of Out of Work: Unemployment and Government in Twentieth-Century America by Richard K. Vedder and Lowell E. Gallaway (1993)
"In 1932, the English economist Edwin Cannan delivered the presidential address to the Royal Economic Society. ... With the Great Depression nearing its bottom, Professor Cannan discussed why many industrial economies were suffering from massive unemployment. .... Vedder and Gallaway go on to discuss the detrimental consequences of government interference and regulation of the American labor markets throughout the post-World War II period to the present. Their analysis demonstrates beyond any doubt that the problem of unemployment has been caused by the state, not by any inherent flaws or failures in a free market."
Book Review: Problemas Economicos de Mexico, Future of Freedom, Jan 1999
Review of Problemas Economicos de Mexico (1998), translation of a 1943 English monograph by Ludwig von Mises
"In December 1941, Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises was invited by Luis Montes de Oca, a former director of the Mexican central bank, to deliver a series of lectures in Mexico during January and February 1942. ... At a time of international financial crisis, like the one during the last two years, when a growing number of governments are once more publicly advocating new controls on global capital movements, increased restrictions on private enterprise, and inflationary policies to artificially create employment, Mises's insightful analysis remains as timely as when he penned it more than half a century ago."
Book Review: Red Flag Over Hong Kong, Future of Freedom, Jan 1997
Revew of Red Flag Over Hong Kong by Bruce Bueno de Mesquita, David Newman, and Alvin Rabushka, 1996, which discusses the then potential effects of the handover of Hong Kong to China
"What has made Hong Kong the free and prosperous place that it is, the authors argue, has been individual rights; rule of law; private property; a very free market in all production, commerce and trade; low and nondiscriminatory taxes; and a high degree of confidence that freedom and free enterprise would be protected and respected. This has been in stark contrast to China's history and present practices."

Book Review: Say's Law and the Keynesian Revolution, Future of Freedom, Feb 1999
Review of Say's Law and the Keynesian Revolution: How Macroeconomic Theory Lost Its Way by Steven Kates, 1998
"John Maynard Keynes ended his famous 1936 book ... by pointing out, 'The ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly believed. ... Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. ...' ... Say's Law, properly understood, explains both what causes unemployment and how to solve it. But the ghost of Keynes continues to point economic policy in the direction of inflationary demand stimulus in an attempt to bring markets back into balance."
Book Review: The Future and Its Enemies, Future of Freedom, May 1999
Review of The Future and Its Enemies (1998) by Virginia Postrel
"May 8, 1999, marks the hundredth birthday of Austrian economist Friedrich A. Hayek. One of Hayek's most important and lasting contributions to human understanding has been his development of a theory of spontaneous order. ... Postrel's book stands out as one of the best popular defenses of the ideal of a free society precisely because she covers the skeletal principles of liberty with the flesh and blood of history ... and examples of things around us ... It is one of those rare instances of a well-balanced blending of theory and practice that may yet make free men and free markets a reality in the next century."
Book Review: The Quest for Cosmic Justice, Future of Freedom, Dec 1999
Review of The Quest for Cosmic Justice by Thomas Sowell, 1999
"... as Sowell cogently explains, there are no 'objectively' correct answers as to what individuals within these collective groupings should receive as their just due. The types of knowledge that would be needed to do so and the interpretive capacity to evaluate the relative merits of the factors that should be weighed for making a 'just' determination are beyond human ability. Only a cosmic or godlike perspective could claim to know what each of us 'deserves.'"
Civil Liberty and the State: The Writ of Habeas Corpus, Future of Freedom, Apr 2002
Highlights of English and American history on the writ of habeas corpus, in particular the 17th century conflict between Charles I and Edward Coke
"Men have risked their lives and fortunes to oppose arrogant political power. When they have done so, they have served as examples and set legal precedents that then secured areas of protected liberty for their contemporaries and for future generations. A shining example of this is the writ of habeas corpus. Habeas corpus means, literally, 'You are to have the body,' i.e., 'You are to bring the body, the prisoner himself, before us,' so that a court of law may be informed as to why a man has been imprisoned."
Economic Ideas: Francis Hutcheson and a System of Natural Liberty, by Richard Ebeling, William Holden, 21 Nov 2016
Discusses the main themes in Hutcheson's System of Moral Philosophy
"Scotland would seem a strange place for the emergence of center of intellectual development that would influence the stream of ideas throughout the world. Scotland had been unified with England near the beginning of the eighteenth century. It was considered a 'backwater' of European civilization. ... Yet, this was, in essence, a central message in Francis Hutcheson's own political and economic philosophy. And it was the starting point for Adam Smith's own profound contributions a few decades later, after his time studying with Hutcheson at the University of Glasgow."
Economics Ideas: David Hume on Self-Coordinating and Correcting Market Processes, 5 Dec 2016
Explores Hume's contributions to the then young subject of "political economy", particularly on the mercantilist view of the need for a "positive" balance of trade
"David Hume was one of the most prominent of the Scottish Moral Philosophers. He is particularly famous as a philosophical skeptic, who, in his book, An Inquiry Concerning Human Understanding (1748), questioned whether man's reason and reasoning ability could successfully apprehend reality with any complete degree of certainty. He also argued that reason followed men's 'passions,' rather than reason being a guide for or a check upon men's emotions and desires. Hume is also famous for arguing that there is a distinct difference between factual or 'positive' statements from ethical or 'normative' statements."
Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk: A Sesquicentennial Appreciation, The Freeman, Feb 2001
Broad biographical essay, including Böhm-Bawerk relationships with Menger, Mises and Schumpeter, and his two major works
"In January 1914 there appeared three articles in one of the leading newspapers in Vienna, Austria-Hungary, by Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk, world-renowned member of the Austrian school of economics and a three-time minister of finance. He warned his readers that the Austrian government was following a policy of fiscal irresponsibility. ... To his last, Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk defended reason and the logic of the market against the emotional appeals and faulty reasoning of those who wished to use power and the government to acquire from others what they could not obtain through free competition."
Freedom, Security, and the Roots of Terrorism against the United States, Future of Freedom, Oct 2001
Reflections on the 11 September attacks a few weeks after, discusses the reasons for the terrorist attacks and proposes certain measures to deal with the situation
"... few Americans seem willing to ask the deeper and more fundamental question of why it is that America is the constant target for terrorist attacks around the world and now at home. ... The fact is that America has aroused the anger of these terrorists and others like them who are waiting in the wings because of American political and military intervention around the world. ... Every foreign intervention undertaken by the U.S. government, therefore, produces a potential underground army of terrorists who now believe that winning their domestic battles requires defeating the foreign interventionist power."
Henry Hazlitt: An Appreciation, by Roy Childs, Richard Ebeling, Nov 1985
Tribute to Hazlitt on his 91st birthday, reviews his career and works
"With the celebration of his 91st birthday this November, Henry Hazlitt can look back upon a career almost unmatched by any other advocate of freedom in this century. From the publication of his first book, Thinking as a Science, at the age of twenty-one, to the present day, one contribution has followed another. The hallmark of everything that has flowed from his pen has been clear thinking, rigorous logic, and an unflinching defense of the free society. His classic work, Economics in One Lesson (1946) has influenced three generations of both economists and the general public."
How I Became a Libertarian and an Austrian Economist, 2 May 2016
Autobiographical essay highlighting the people and events who influenced him in his path to libertarianism and Austrian economics
"I suppose I can date my interest in both libertarianism and Austrian Economics from the day I was born. The doctor grabbed me by my little feet, turned me upside down and spanked my tiny bottom. I began to cry out. ... I appreciated that what the doctor had done was in violation of the 'non-aggression' principle. The rest is history. Well . . . maybe not quite. ... But [Murray Rothbard] was the radical libertarian – 'Mr. Libertarian' as some came to call him – the master system-builder of a 'science of liberty' based on the 'natural rights' of individuals to freedom on Aristotelian philosophical foundations. "
Individual Liberty and Civil Society, Feb 1993
Reflects on Benjamin Constant's lecture on what liberty meant to the ancient Greeks vs. the 19th century Europeans and Americans and the 20th century reversion to statism
"Our 'liberty' in the political order is to choose between political leaders with the same philosophical perspective. Once that has been done, we revert to being subjects dependent upon the increasing discretion of those we have placed in office and those who have the greatest special-interest influence in effecting the directions of state policy. ... we are continuing our journey back to the political world of three thousand years ago. We continue to trade away the modem ideal of individual liberty for the ancient ideal of collective tyranny."
Israel M. Kirzner and the Austrian Theory of Competition and Entrepreneurship, Future of Freedom, Aug 2001
Written on occasion of Kirzner's academic retirement at age 71; begins with biographical summary and then focuses on Kirzner's understanding of entrepreneurs in the market "process" and the detrimental effects of government intervention in the market
"With the end of the 2001 spring semester, one of the leading Austrian economists in the world, Dr. Israel M. Kirzner, has decided to retire from formal academic life at the age of 71. Over a scholarly career that has spanned more than 40 years, Kirzner has enriched our understanding of the theory of the competitive process, the role of the entrepreneur in bringing about market coordination and innovation, the nature of capital and interest, the dangers resulting from the regulated economy, and the importance of individual freedom for the open-ended creativity that enhances the general human condition."
John Stuart Mill and the Three Dangers to Liberty, Future of Freedom, Jun 2001
Evaluates John Stuart Mills arguments in his essay "On Liberty", in particular the three forms of tyranny posited by Mill and an element (private property) not emphasized by his analysis
"... it would be an unjustifiable violation of another's personal freedom to coercively attempt to prevent him from ingesting some substance that he — however wrong-headedly from the critic's perspective — finds desirable, useful, or pleasurable. But Mill, unfortunately, conceded to the government as necessary responsibilities far more powers of intervention into social and economic affairs than most modern classical liberals and libertarians consider justifiable."

"Over the middle decades of the twentieth century, Mises made a number of profoundly important contributions that challenged many of the fashionable and influential collectivist and socialist ideas of his time, and which still echo in the twenty-first century. ... The author of over 20 books and hundreds of scholarly and popular articles, Mises influenced several generations of economists, sociologists, historians, and other social philosophers over his professional career, and his books and articles continue to be a major intellectual force, still regularly read by thousands every year."
Milton Friedman (1912-2006), by Richard Ebeling, Sheldon Richman, 17 Nov 2006
Memorial tribute, highlighting Friedman's role in opposing Keynesianism, and his books and other public activities
"Milton Friedman, who died last month at age 94, was one of the twentieth century’s most influential champions of individual liberty and free markets. The 1976 winner of the Nobel Prize in economics and an early associate of FEE, Friedman did more than any single person in our time to teach the public the merits of deregulation, privatization, low taxes, and free trade. ... Sadly, Milton Friedman is gone from us now. But his legacy and devotion to liberty will inspire freedom lovers for many generations."

Monetary Central Planning and the State, Part 18: Say's Law of Markets and Keynesian Economics, Future of Freedom, Jun 1998
Explains the basics of exchange and markets, then discussing Say's Law and John Stuart Mills refinement
"In the preface to The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, John Maynard Keynes stated that 'the composition of this book has been for the author a long struggle of escape ... a struggle of escape from habitual modes of thought and expression.' What Keynes struggled to escape from were the commonsense foundations of economics. ... Correct prices always ensure full employment; correct prices always ensure that supplies create a demand for them; correct prices always ensure the harmony of the market. This was the reality of the law of markets from which Keynes struggled so hard to escape."
Monetary Central Planning and the State, Part 24: Milton Friedman's Framework for Economic Stability, Future of Freedom, Dec 1998
Describes Friedman's criticisms of Keynesian policies and examines Friedman's own proposals for government intervention in the economy
"In the post-World War II period in the United States, there have been few voices as important for the defense of the free market as that of Milton Friedman. In his 1962 book Capitalism and Freedom, he forcefully challenged the trend towards increasing government control over economic life. ... Whether it was his intention or not, Friedman's proposed 'monetary and fiscal framework for economic stability' legitimated the Keynesian arguments for government intervention in the market economy."

Monetary Central Planning and the State, Part 25: Milton Friedman and the Demand for Money, Future of Freedom, Jan 1999
Describes the role of money according to Keynesians and contrasts it with Friedman's monetary theories
"In 1951, economist Howard S. Ellis happily pointed out, '... During the late thirties and the war years, it became fashionable with certain theoretical economists [the Keynesians] to stamp any especial concern with the supply of money and credit with the stigma of a hopelessly naive quantity theory. ...' ... Friedman's conclusion, therefore, was that if the demand for money was far more stable than the Keynesians had assumed, then significant short-run fluctuations in economywide output and employment, as well as price inflations and deflations, had to have their source in changes in the supply of money."

Monetary Central Planning and the State, Part 26: Milton Friedman and the Monetary "Rule" for Economic Stability, Future of Freedom, Feb 1999
Examines Friedman's arguments, in a 1967 speech, about what monetary policy could not accomplish and his defense of a paper money standard in the 1960 book A Program for Monetary Stability
"In 1967, Milton Friedman delivered the presidential address at the American Economic Association in Washington, D.C. His theme was 'The Role of Monetary Policy.' He argued that there was 'wide agreement about the major goals of economic policy: high employment, stable prices, and rapid growth.' ... Could a central monetary authority be trusted to follow such a 'rule' and forgo the temptations of discretionary manipulation of the money supply? Was a paper money standard really less costly than a commodity standard like gold? Even Milton Friedman began to have second thoughts in later years."
Monetary Central Planning and the State, Part 27: Milton Friedman's Second Thoughts on the Costs of Paper Money, Future of Freedom, Mar 1999
Discusses how Friedman changed his mind about the advisability of a paper money standard
"The costs of a paper money standard to the society as a whole, Friedman argued, arose precisely from the uncertainty of future monetary policy under government monetary discretion and the inflationary bias that always tended to persist under government control of paper money. During inflationary times, people often tied up real resources that otherwise could have been applied for productive activities in the accumulation of gold and silver hoards as a hedge against rising prices."

Monetary Central Planning and the State, Part 29: The Gold Standard in the 19th Century, Future of Freedom, May 1999
Discusses the evolution of the gold standard, from the creation of the Bank of England (1694), the Bank Restriction Act (1797), arguments for its repeal by David Ricardo and John Stuart Mill, and its international development until the 1890s
"By the fact that such a large number of countries had each linked their respective currencies to gold at some fixed rate of redemption in this manner, there emerged an international gold standard. A person in any one of those countries could enter any number of established, authorized banks and trade in a certain quantity of bank notes for a stipulated sum of gold, in the form of either coin or bullion. ... There was only one fundamental problem and inconsistency ... The gold standard, after all, was a government-managed monetary system."
Related Topic: Gold Standard
Monetary Central Planning and the State, Part 30: The Gold Standard as Government-Managed Money, Future of Freedom, Jun 1999
Describes how, by allowing central banks to manage gold-backed currencies, the road was paved for central planning in other areas
"While the goals for monetary policy may have been considered modest and limited in the eyes of the classical liberals of the 19th century, it remained a fact that the monetary system was a subject for national government policy. ... And as such, even most of the advocates of economic liberty argued for monetary socialism and monetary central planning. They failed to call for and defend the privatization of the most important commodity in a market economy – the medium of exchange."

Monetary Central Planning and the State, Part 31: Ludwig von Mises on the Case for Gold and a Free Banking System, Future of Freedom, Jun 1999
Examines Mises' thinking on why the gold standard is needed, why it is necessary for it not be subject to political manipulation, why free banking is needed and the ideological environment required for its success
"Throughout most of the 20th century, one of the leading proponents of the gold standard was the Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises. Why gold? Mises explained this many times, but did so, perhaps, most concisely in a 1965 essay entitled 'The Gold Problem' ... as market-oriented ideas have once again become a growing force in political debates, the idea of the denationalization of money has been raised as the alternative to central banking for the first time in more than a century. And the opening of this modern debate was begun by Mises's Austrian-school colleague, Friedrich A. Hayek, in the 1970s."
Monetary Central Planning and the State, Part 32: Friedrich A. Hayek and the Case for the Denationalization of Money, Future of Freedom, Aug 1999
Shows the progression of Hayek's thinking on money from 1945 when he was agreeable to central monetary control to 1976 when he advocated a system of private competing currencies
"The consequence was the constant abuse of the printing press and a resulting price inflation to feed the seemingly insatiable demands of privileged and politically influential groups. Hayek now concluded that some method had to be found to free the ordinary citizen from the government's monopoly control of the medium of exchange. The answer, he suggested, was allowing individuals the freedom to use whatever money they chose ..."

Examines the arguments made by Rothbard in his 1962 essay "The Case for a 100 Percent Gold Dollar"
"... these emerging bankers soon came to realize that they could extend additional loans to borrowers in the form of 'notes' that looked exactly like the warehouse receipts issued to their gold and silver depositors. ... This, Rothbard argued, was the beginning of 'fractional-reserve banking.' ... that also meant that the total face value of notes and receipts in circulation now exceeded by some multiple the amount of gold and silver against which they represented a claim."

The Early Economists Who Tried to Save France, 31 Oct 2016
Discusses the Physiocrats, focusing on Quesnay and Turgot
"In the middle decades of the eighteenth century two schools of thought emerged ... that were critical of Mercantilism, the government system of economic planning and regulation in the 1700s. In Great Britain, the primary thinkers were members of what has become known as the Scottish Moral Philosophers. In France the proponents of the new ideas of economic freedom were known as the Physiocrats. ... This was also France's last real chance for economic transformation before the corruption and financial chaos of the government would lead to the catastrophe and terror of the French Revolution that began in 1789."
The Fable of the Bees Tells the Story of Society, 15 Nov 2016
Discusses the "moral" of Mandeville's work The Fable of the Bees, that "prosperous, wealthy and great societies only arise from men's self-interested desires"
"One of the major turning points in social and economic understanding emerged in the 1700s with the theory of social order without human design. Before the eighteenth century, most social theory presumed or took as a working assumption that human society had its origin and sustainability in the creation of social institutions through either 'divine' intervention, or by human will and plan. ... Here, then, was the germ of an idea – self-interest and its beneficial though unplanned side effects – that would have profound influence and repercussions a few decades later in the hands of the Scottish Moral Philosophers."
Up From Freedom: Friedrich von Hayek and the Defence of Liberty, ama-gi, 1996
Opens with biographical details and then discusses Hayek's insights
"Hayek's particular and profound contribution to the debate over the feasibility of socialism was the following argument: that the more complex a society, the more difficult it becomes for a central planner to possess the required knowledge to co-ordinate all the economic activity of that society. In a system of division of labour, human knowledge is also divided. Each member of society possesses a small fraction of all the world's knowledge."
