They should have the whole Austrian school... 5 min each.

nice!

I think they could have got a better rep from mises though, someone who focuses more on the economic side of things rather than history. Woods admits he is not an expert in austrian economics, but I am sure he will do great! I'm excited to hear his testimony.

trust me, the congressmen do not want to sit there listening to somebody they won't understand.

Maybe he is there for the history, not the economics...

He's usually a little light and sarcastic! I imagine he'll be a little more subdued, but wouldn't it by funny if he wasn't?

"These guys have depreciated 98% of the dollar! No reason to think they're doing anything wrong!"

From his Facebook page:

I have to be on my best behavior, but I expect to make at least a few remarks that will make our people smile.

Aw man. :( Rafael Palmeiro was up there wagging his finger, I think Tom could get away with something.

Though I'm sure he doesn't want to risk losing support for the bill with political incorrectness. Smart move.

Woods is smart and knows not to do anything stupid. He understands that the committee graciously asked him to testify, and he is probably honored to do so.

Awesome - thanks for the links! It's a great statement. One bit I especially liked...


"The Federal Reserve may as well get used to the idea that the audit is coming. That would be a far more sensible approach than the counterproductive and condescending one it has adopted thus far, in which the peons who populate the country are urged to quit pestering their betters with all these impertinent questions. The Fed should take to heart the words of consolation the American people are given whenever a new government surveillance program is uncovered: if you’re not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about."

:D

I second SelfTaught's question.
