Once again Douglas Carswell MP is able to simply explain why there is little chance of the current UK government fixing the crisis if they continue to pursue the fiat monetary system. Mr Carswell begins his argument by questioning how we can ridicule Krugman’s proposals of fiscal stimulus when our own government supports monetary stimulus. […]
The Renegade Economist is an excellent website with a similar philosophy to Bogpaper. As we would like to do the often publish contributed commentaries.

We’ve been posting quite a few videos here at Bogpaper but, quite simply, they are often the best way to understand and get a message across.
In this ‘micro-doc’ a series of economists, journalists, pscyhoanalysts and other experts discuss neoclassical economics (the branch of economics used today to form economic policies) and how it is based on incorrect foundations.

Reading his book, End the Fed, this week, we felt the following excerpt was an interesting […]
