Liberale Menschen hatten und haben es in Österreich (und anderswo) nicht leicht. Etatismus wird in Österreich nach wie vor hochgehalten, wie die Diskussion um die Einsichtnahme der Finanzbehörden in die Bankkonten Privater, aber auch die Plakatkampagne in Wien gegen „die Privatisierung von Gemeindebau, öffentlichem Verkehr und kommunalen Betrieben“ deutlich zeigt.

According to Ronald Ehrenberg, economist and professor of labor and industrial relations at Cornell, tuition at selective private colleges and universities has grown at two to three percentage points over the rate of inflation for over a century. However, “it wasn’t until the 1980s,” he wrote, “that tuition growth began to regularly outstrip growth in median family income.”

The Austrian School has consistently argued that a “traditionalist” approach to inflation yields the most accurate understanding of the causes, and the cure, for inflation. Austrian economists maintain that inflation is, by definition, always and everywhere simply an increase in the money supply over and above the demand for money, which in turn leads to a higher nominal price level for assets, as the real value of each monetary unit is eroded, losing purchasing power and, thus, buying fewer goods and services.
“I’ve been researching European integration and monetary unification issues for more than a decade now, I’m both personally and professionally interested in the ongoing currency, banking and unemployment crisis in the E(M)U. Therefore, I would like to not only contribute the intellectual debate and hopefully disprove those who claim that economy is too important to be left to economists, but also to distill the episodes in which libertarian ideas were distorted into ill-championed dogmas from those in which liberalisation, competition and free-market allocation have been all too easily dismissed once again on shallow, ideological grounds.” (Marko Malovic)
“Inappropriate” became the word of the day Friday when it was spoken by both White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and Lois Lerner the director of the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) that oversees tax-exempt groups. In both cases it was used to describe actions by “low-level” employees against conservative groups applying for 501(c) (4) tax exempt status. “Inappropriate” is an inoffensive euphemism for what was obviously a politically motivated, despicable act. Though they have come to naught, predictions of right wing violence have been a stable of the Obama Administration from the get-go.
