Amity Shlaes: The Forgotten Man

Austrian Economist Blog and Schechter….

by Amity Shlaes Monday, December 1, 2008

For some reason I have the Schechters on the brain. They are the family of chicken butchers who stood up to the New Deal.  I’m also teaching them this week in my NYU class. My Schechterism is shared by  least one reader, an Austrian, apparently.  Thank you, Austrians. I’m gaining more respect for you every day. I can feel myself turning into an Austrian.
