The Swedish Mises Institute

December 23, 2010 by

A note from the Ludwig von Mises Institute in Sweden:

Dear all,

At the Ludwig von Mises Institute in Sweden we can now look back at our first year in business, and what wonderful year it has been. When we started we were not prepared for the enormous interest for this kind of information in Swedish. We get emails every week from people that want to know more, and from people that wants to help us.

During the year we have translated over 100 articles on several popular topics including Austrian economics, anarcho-capitalism and IP, and we have also built a strong network of good writers that produces articles for us.

In October we were invited to freedom fest (http://www.frifest.no) in Oslo Norway were we gave a popular speech on the theme “Your enemy the state” about Austrian economics and a defense of anarcho-capitalism (http://vimeo.com/17059321).

Next year we will attend and speak at more events and we are already invited to a big event in March that will discuss energy, environment and economy were we will have a speech on money, inflation and the decivilization process in the society.

We were happy to find out that there are old Swedish translations of The anti capitalist mentality, Liberalism and Economics in one lesson Henry Hazlitt that are out of print but we are investigating right now if it is possible for us to publish a new modern version in Swedish. During the year we have also translated Production of security by Gustave de Molinari and What has government done to our money. We hope that we will be able to publish some of these books in Swedish during 2011.

Our site and the number of visitors has increased so much by now so we can expand with forums and other functionality to further expand the community.

There are big challenges in Europe next year, the coming collapse of the euro, the growth of the European central state with taxation and more surveillance, but one thing that makes us look positive on the future is that when we meet young people or people that never have been exposed to these kinds of ideas before, it is easy to make them interested and start to think and to reconsider their beliefs.

We also would like to thank all of you at the Mises Institute for the inspiration in the work you do every day.

With these words we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

We are looking forward to see you all in Vienna next year.

Your friends in the struggle for liberty,

You have a lot of work to do in the area of “sex” crimes.

It would seem to me that the problem with FRB is that whilst the money in my posession might be very short term, when I become a creditor of the bank it is in respect of a very small part of a large sum of money with an amorphous maturity. The banks themselves decide on the maturity of different slices depending on the historic trends and then lend it out accordingly.Herein lies the fallacy behind FRB, If the trend changes because the deposits are declining as they would, for example, if the velocity of money were to change, then a liquidity trap is revealed.Then, no matter what the niceties of the argument, the banks are stuffed as am I.As for gold, the politicians cannot be trusted with fiat money. When will we teach them a lesson? Maybe when they start to sequest our private pension funds as other European nations have started to do. When they sequest our private savings, possibly. Who knows, but there will be a tipping point and it will be nasty but it will result in a gold standard

And – hopefully – there will also be a translation of Mises “Economic Policy” next year.
