Volume 13, No. 1 (Spring 2010) of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics is now online. Articles include:
Jerry H. Tempelman, “Austrian Business Cycle Theory and the Global Financial Crisis: Confessions of a Mainstream Economist”
Tempelman argues that many mainstream economists have begun to analyze the financial crisis, perhaps unwittingly so, in terms that sound as if they were derived directly from the Mises-Hayek-Garrison theory of macroeconomic fluctuations.
James P. Keeler and J. Dean Craig, “Cyclical Capital Stock”
Keeler and Craig explore the concept that capital is heterogeneous, and whether it exhibits
cyclical changes. Using data from the airline industry, the authors find that there are regular patterns by which airlines adjust the mix of capital.
Xavier Mera, “Factor Prices under Monopoly”
Revisiting Rothbardian monopoly price theory, Mera extends this to the realm of factor pricing, explaining how grants of monopolistic privileges to capitalists can lower labor and
land factors’ prices compared to what would prevail in a free market environment.
Ben O’Neill,“Choice and Indifference: A Critique of the Strict Preference Approach”
Ben O’Neill examines the assertion that a choice cannot be made between actions in which the actor is indifferent to the outcomes. He argues that attempts to avoid these decision problems are contrary to the causal-realist approach and lead to unnecessary confusion about the nature of choice and indifference.
Valerio Filioso, “The Corporate Income Tax: An Entrepreneurial Perspective”
In this paper, Valerio Filioso makes three cases for the non-neutrality of corporate income taxation.
