In a detailed 28-minute conversation, I spoke last night to Professor David Howden, Associate Professor of Economics at St. Louis University, in Madrid, about the current fiscal situation in Portugal and Spain, particularly as regards the Euro and its ongoing woes and tribulations in the international bond markets:
We also brushed upon the debt and deficit situation here in Britain, the mysterious and interesting involvement of the Chinese in the Euro crisis, and the Douglas E. French prize awarded at the Mises University each year for the student who emerges from the Mises University oral examination with the best academic record, particularly after being grilled by Professor Hoppe, et al; therefore a prize never won by the faint of heart.
