AUDiO: Brilliant Austrian Economist Robert Wenzel delivers a Stunning Speech AT the NY Fed!

Well my dearest R3VOL, I actually have a much worse news for ya; it's a lot worse than any of us had ever imagined: all the Jekyll Island/occult origins of the Fed.Res. aside, the current 'economists' in charge at the Federal Reserve, actually, really, truly don't have ANY clue just what the hell they're talking about, or writing about, nor doing about!

The Misesian/Rothbardian Austrian Economist Robert Wenzel was actually invited to speak at the Fed. recently (not sure if this thread ever made the Daily Paul Frontpage), despite some last minute protest from its members. While there is no original audio recording of the speech, a fellow Austrian and our DailyPaul's very own Jeffrey Rowberg has narrated/recorded in his own voice, Robert's speech as delivered at the Fed:

Audio Version of My NY Fed Speech

Robert Wenzel | Saturday, April 28, 2012

Jeff Rowberg emails:

I read your Fed speech earlier today, and I thought it was fantastic. And gutsy, definitely gutsy. You are probably hearing that a lot right now.

It appears that the speech was not recorded, at least not on video, and probably not otherwise. Not in a way we can access it, anyway. Therefore, I have taken the liberty of recording an audio version of your prepared remarks. I'm sure it isn't a perfect representation, but it may be useful to those who would rather have an audio version, for podcasts, sharing, giving to people who don't want to make time to read, etc. I put the final MP3 up on my website for you to do with as you wish:


Thanks for all your influential work!

PS. Seems the NY Fed has caught a sado-masochistic bug as of late; apparently they also invited Dr. Paul's candidate to be the last Fed.Res.Chairman ever, Jim Grant, to skewer them, at their own HQ:

Good reading

Do you think that speech was given exactly as written?

Thank you very much for posting this. I heard Bob Wenzel

interviewed by Tom Woods on Peter Schiff's show a few days ago and it was great. They mentioned this speech so I really appreciate the chance to download it to podcast! Bob's website:



That's some speech

Wow, thanks for posting!

I am said fellow Austrian doing the dictation, and a frequent visitor to the DP. :-) I appreciate the effort to share the speech. I'm sure we all hoped for some recording of the event (or especially a video). But since that didn't happen, I couldn't pass up the opportunity after seeing so many people asking for a recording in the comments on his original post. Plus I had fun recording it anyway. I just hope the delivery was believable and engaging enough. It's easy for me to fall into a monotone presentation if I'm not careful.

Thank you SO much for the recording, Jeff!

Great cadence, vocal delivery & enunciation!

Plus, not to mention making me feel lazy, for having listened to it, rather than just reading Bob's speech!


Well, so okay, I did actually read Bob's entire speech prior to coming across your recording, but had I not, I'd have felt doubly guilty/lazy/'cheating' for having played the audio.

Thanks again!

No complaints here. Well done.

long speech, but really flies by

in audio format.

a great primer to share with your Keynesian friends, too.

Actually, do any of you actually have dyed-in-the-wool Keynesian friends, anymore? LOL
