Mises Hailed in Ted Talk by Rory Sutherland: Perspective is Everything

My suspicion Rory Sutherland had looked into the Austrian school was piqued when he noted the negative impact of how a compulsory tax is spent, and confirmed when he put up a bumper sticker titled:

"Ludwig von Mises is my hero"

and let the Ted Talk audience know "this is a guy you should study".

One of the most interesting post I have seen on the DP

Nice Mises reference too!

Lord Acton, Lord Chief Justice of England, 1875 - "The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People v. The Banks."

Perspective

per: one
spec(t): sight
-ive: function

function that is sight by one (person)

which is the chief component of subjectivity.

subject, object. OR subject (inside) ---> object (outside) which in reverse is subject (inside) ---> object (outside). <--- perspective :)

School's fine. Just don't let it get in the way of thinking. -Me

Study nature, not books. -Walton Forest Dutton, MD, in his 1916 book whose subject is origin (therefore what all healing methods involve and count on), simple and powerful.

Thanks

That was great!
