The Future of Money Conference

Last Friday I had the pleasure of giving the keynote speech at the Future of Money Conference in Leipzig. This was one of the best monetary events so far, the speakers were all of the highest calibre and it was great discussing Austrian School concepts with some of the top thinkers in Germany.

Thanks to all of the team at The Future of Money Conference and thanks to the others who made it possible – see below for their organisation names.

Thanks also to Commerzbank for hosting the event at their headquarters.

I also stayed in Leipzig for an extra few days and caught a couple of Wagner operas hence only writing about this today – appropriately enough given the state of the global banking system and the looming collapse of the global debt super-bubble one of the operas I saw was Götterdämmerung.
