Lew Rockwell has announced an exciting opportunity in the US:
Ron Paul has been named chairman of the Domestic Monetary Policy subcommittee, and will have one committee staffer. Ron and his chief of staff Jeff Deist are looking for a smart, young economist, “thoroughly Austrian, and preferably with an advanced degree. The candidate needs strong knowledge of the Fed and monetary policy generally, and must be an effective writer. He or she will be responsible for organizing hearings; summarizing data and Fed actions for Dr. Paul; writing statements; dealing with Financial Services committee staff; and various other tasks.”
This can be a life-changing experience for the right young person. Imagine an 18th century classified: “Wanted, Economist-Assistant to Thomas Jefferson.” This is the equivalent, although Jefferson was not as principled in office as Ron Paul.
Let us hope that British monetary policy one day finds itself in the hands of a “thoroughly Austrian” economist.
