For some reason, there are a handful of people who've never read Rothbard but who feel the need to post negative comments about him, usually as a non sequitir (as here). It's the oddest thing. . . . . One little point about Rothbard -- anyone who's familiar with his writing can easily see the heavy influence on Ron Paul's book "The Case for Gold." Large sections were obviously influenced (ghostwritten?) by Murray.
Incidentally, just finished re-reading Rothbard's "A History of Money and Banking in the United States: The Colonial Era to World War II." An outstanding economic history, and I enjoyed it more the second time.
