Here is an interview with the Cobden Centre Radio on my book The Tragedy of the Euro. I talk also about the future of the Euro.
El próximo jueves 27 de enero, a las 19.30 horas en la sala 057 del Edificio Departamental, comenzaran las actividades del "Club de Debate sobre Economía Europea",del Departamento de Economía Aplicada I, con la presentación del tema "la tragedia del euro", a cargo del Profesor Philipp Bagus, que acaba de publicar un libro con ese título.
Esto es un réplica a una crítica lanzada por mi buen amigo Juan Ramón Rallo a lo que él considera implicaciones de mi libro.
En primer lugar que prefiero tipos de cambio variables a tipos de cambio fijos en un sistema de monedas fiat. En ningún momento en el libro aparece este comentario ni nada que induzca a pensar que tengo esta preferencia. Es muy difícil generalizar que los tipos fijos son mejores que los variables en un sistema fiat. Es necesario analizar las construciones monetarias caso a caso.

Past thursday we had the presentation of our Master in Austrian Economics (Master en Economía de la Escuela Austriaca). It is already the 4th edition of the Master. I am very happy with its growth. It looks like we will have up to 40 students this year, almost half of them from outside of Spain.

While quantitative easing has received much press, qualitative easing has been neglected. Qualitative easing consists in central bank policies that deteriorate the average quality of the assets that it holds. This can occur both with and without quantitative easing. By selling high quality assets (i.e., foreign exchange, government bonds, or gold) to buy low quality assets (i.e., asset backed securities, or granting loans to a tumbling banking system), there may be qualitative easing without an increase of the central banks´ balance sheet (i.e., without quantitative easing).
