Salerno on His New Book, Monetary Economics, and Many Sundry Topics

Tom Woods has alerted us to this "wide-ranging and engaging interview" of Joseph Salerno by the Daily Bell. Woods rightly calls Salerno "the best living monetary economist in the Austrian tradition," which makes him simply the best living monetary economist.

Of particular note is Salerno's discussion of the nature of money and the money supply, his thoughts on private fractional reserve banking, his appreciation of the work of Hans Sennholz, and the various branches of Austrian economic scholars.

Salerno's latest book is an immense collection of his work in monetary economics, Money, Sound and Unsound. You can buy it at good book retailers everywhere or download it for free from the Ludwig von Mises Institute.
