Brad DeLong Raises the Jolly Roger

Robert Waldmann

This post is an act of solidarity with DeLong’s heroic civil disobedience of absurd intellectual property restrictions. Brad writes (in full Brad. All’s fair with those who ignore “fair use” restrictions).

Jacob Viner (1933), “Balanced Deflation, Inflation, or More Depression”

Perhaps the most important single document with respect to how much the Chicago School of Economics has forgotten over the past seventy-five years–how much less they know now than Irving Fisher or Knut Wicksell did.

As I understand things, Jacob Viner’s estate has rights to this document until 2040, and there is at present no way for me to get permission to legally distribute it. So I think it is time to hoist the jolly roger…

I hoist it too.
