An Economics Blog

Liberty vs. Leviathan informs us of the existence of a blog "dedicated to the Jesuit Scholastics of the School of Salamanca who helped lay the foundation of free-market economics" — La Nueva Escuela de Salamanca.

I have a very good book in my library by written by Argentine economist Alessandro Chaufin. It is about the Jesuit scholastics at Salamanca and their economic theorizing. The book is titled Christians for Freedom, and it is well well well worth a read. Basically, the Jesuits of Salamanca anticipated virtually all of the aspects of free market economy developed by Smith, et al.

As with international law, it turns out that the Spanish were essential theorists of free market economics as well. Viva Espana!

I don't know a thing about the Jesuit scholastics at Salamanca but if they have the Austrian seal of approval, well . . .

I suspect that when it finally comes down to it, the problem is usury. And as long as usury continues, there are no theories or solutions which will work because the underlying problems are ignored.

Usury not only of money, but usury of our fellow man.

Most of our problems are finally moral to which we attempt to apply the best and brightest material solutions.

Most problems solve themselves when the underlying problem is addressed. God told Adam to name the animals, i.e. to know their natures, and Adam in turn chose the solution of the occult. We need to likewise turn away from the solutions of the occult and to instead understand the underlying nature of the problem.
