Descrição do produto

What if the government let anyone use a currency of his or her choosing? What if the government permitted entrepreneurs to innovate in the monetary sector, by creating digital currencies or minting commodity money?

This sort of privatization of money is precisely what F.A. Hayek argues for in his masterful Denationalisation of Money.

Hayek wrote this near the end of his career, after thinking through all the economic arguments for monetary reform and examining the political viability of various proposals. He shows the essential nonviability of government money, and calls for a completely free market in the production, distribution, and management of money.

This book is the very core of the Hayekian approach to monetary policy, and the book that drew the world's attention to this radical thinker following his Nobel Prize in economics. The argument is substantively similar to Mises's, but rather than arguing for a gold standard, Hayek argues for utter abandonment of governmental attempts to reform money. The result: competitive private currencies that permit the market alone to choose the dominant currency the world over.

In the digital age, his argument takes on new significance, as experimentation in digital currencies continues apace and the harm of inflation takes its toll in new and painful ways.

2.0 de 5 estrelas False premises 3 de abril de 2014
Por Virginia Hammon - Publicada na Amazon.com

This is a reasonably readable statement of the Austrian School of economic thought. However, it confirms that this worldview is built on fundamental premises that are false:

1. The Myth of "Self-Interest." Hayek is a purveyor of the myth that, "In a world governed by the pressure of organised interests, the important truth to keep in mind is that we cannot count on intelligence or understanding but only on sheer self-interest to give us the institutions we need." (131) This viewpoint has been debunked by an accurate reading of history, and research by anthropologists, sociologists and psychologists. Sheer self-interest gives us short-term greed that leads to systemic meltdowns (as Greenspan belated recognized and acknowledged in Congressional hearing after the 2008 meltdown); it does not lead to a utopian invisible market hand that stabilizes the economy and makes everything wonderful. Sheer self-interest is our lower cognitive-social-emotional mind at work; it is an adolescent fantasy. Intelligence and understanding represent our higher mind at work.

2. The Myth that government is at fault for the instability of our monetary and economic systems. At the beginning of this book Hayek acknowledges that, "...bank deposits subject to cheque, and thus a sort of privately issued money, are today of course a part, and in most countries much the largest part, of the aggregate amount of generally accepted media of exchange." Just a few pages later he states, "When one studies the history of money one cannot help wondering why people should have put up for so long with governments exercising an exclusive power over 2,000 years that was regularly used to exploit and defraud them." (33) Well, they both can't be true; as he himself, noted, the creation of MOST currency has been primarily in the hands of private parties (the dog), who have successfully gotten governments (the wagging tail) to guarantee however much money they have chosen to create---driven by "sheer self-interest." He argues, that despite the private issuance of most of our currency, it is the fault of government that our currency is unstable---"History is largely inflation engineered by government." (33)"...manipulated at will in the service of political aims..."(p.131). Government is at fault for allowing a privately controlled issuance of our currency, but it has certainly not been in control of the process for at least 800 years.

I recommend the book, Modernising Money by Jackson and Dyson,Modernising Money: Why Our Monetary System is Broken and How it Can be Fixed or any of the materials on the website, PositiveMoney, for an understanding of the money system that is lacking in Hayek's work.
