Jim Grant of Grant's Interest Rate Observer sits down for an audio interview with Lew Rockwell.
They discuss, as you might imagine, the classical gold standard -- and if it could be brought back to these times.
They also talk about Grant's appreciation for the Austrian School of economics, how he got into it and what aspects of it benefit Grant's thinking today. Interestingly, Grant doesn't profess in-depth knowledge of the Austrian School (he says "I know enough to be dangerous") but finds its basic tenets "compelling." I say I find that interesting because that's exactly how I feel about Austrian economics.
In a side note, I remember Jean-Marie Eveillard mentioning Austrian economics in some of his audio interviews (see King World News and Jim Puplava's sites).
Along with Grant's recent New York Times op-ed that I linked to in a previous post, this interview with Rockwell is well worth your time and consideration. It lasts about 16 to 17 minutes.
