ECONOMICS IS NOT LIBERTARIANISM In my modest opinion, Austrian economics is a great school of economic thought which needs to reform itself by breaking from their libertarian ideas. There is no doubt that markets work best under a free environment, but I think the term "free" and "wild" are very different. I think Austrian Economics favors a "wild" society and markets. In real life, in real logic, in real human action, the far right and the far left are just two horns from the same cow. Both are equally destructive for society. WHAT SHOULD BE DONE 1-I believe Austrian's expansion is held back by their extremists views. They lose credibility. Avoid "libertarianism" 2- Their literature is far too old. 19th Century writings are awful and boring. Textbooks should be made in order to remedy this problem and maybe they will gain more acceptance.
