Mises Circle in Toronto

Sponsored by Maple Leaf Metals

As governments grapple with the daily news of doom and gloom in the wake of the great recession the question is being asked, who is to blame for the financial crisis? And what course should we chart for a brighter future? To answer this question, an increasing number of people are turning to the Austrian school of economic thought.

On Saturday, October 22 the Ludwig von Mises Institute of Canada and the Institute for Liberal Studies will be co-hosting a seminar discussing monetary policy and free banking.

We will have the following speakers to enlighten our guests.

  • George Bragues (University of Guelph-Humber) – Ethics of Central Banking
  • Jonathan Catalan – Monetary Policy of the Great Recession
  • Lawrence H. White (George Mason University) – A history of free banking
  • Chris Horlacher (Maple Leaf Metals) – Birth and Death of the Bank of Canada

Among the topics discussed will be:

  • A comparison of free banking and central banking
  • The ethics of central banks
  • Canada’s history of free banking
  • Central banking and the great depression
  • How to unwind the Current system
