I was at court yesterday and before it opened, I started talking to another attorney about the problems with our current system. Admittedly, I’m new to the Austrian perspective (having only heard of Hayek a month ago), but I was able to successfully point out the problems with the Bush/Obama stimulus. I even used the words from the video (“Capitalism is about profit and loss; when you bail out the losers, there’s no end to the cost”). Another attorney smiled during the entire conversation and later told me, “I saw that video, too.”

That is an AWESOME story! Could I copy this note for a facebook post?

How about a movie version of “The Invisible Heart”?

An interesting critical post of your last video (in French): http://www.mafeco.fr/?q=node/253

that rocks!

I wonder if libertarian-leaning politicos can use it in their pitch?

Now seen it more than 10 times. Last night I showed both Fear the Boom and Bust and Fight of the Century to my daughter.

I don’t suppose we can take bets – oh! (ahem) “derivatives” – on when it will cross 1 million?

Methinks1776 May 19, 2011 at 12:17 pm

In what way is a bet necessarily a derivative?

Marcus May 19, 2011 at 12:23 pm

Well, it does derive from an economic discussion! ;-)

Thanks a lot. Do you have any idea how many variations of “Time for a peanut derivative and fruit derivative on grain derivative!” your comment has inspired and I was forced to endure today?! I may never forgive you.
