In his post on Jim Grant's recent piece in The New York Times, Jeffrey Tucker of Mises.org writes perceptively:
What I find particularly striking is how Grant manages to write for this venue in a way that makes his analysis have the feel of being very mainstream, though its radicalism is just beneath the surface. Maybe the editors are too ill-read to know what's what or maybe he is just so darn talented that he can manage to pull it off in way that the editors are too impressed to say no. In any case, it is quite a prize for Austrians that the nation's leading newspaper has made an Austrian the official commentator on all issues of financial cycles. They keeping alive a tradition that began with Henry Hazlitt at the NYT and probably don't know it.
