BitcoinNews.com is proud to partner with the Center for Market Education for an online discussion with American economist Lawrence H. White. The webinar is free to attend and will take place on Tuesday, June 20.
Professor White has been studying private currencies, as his Twitter profile accurately states, “since before they became cool.”
White teaches economics at George Mason University in the United States and has focused his long career on money and free banking. Following in the tradition of FA Hayek, he advocates the idea of competition in currency.
Of particular interest to Bitcoiners, White engaged with influential cypherpunks Hal Finney and Nick Szabo and even had an impact on their thinking early on. For example, White and Hal Finney went back and forth via articles in a magazine called Extropy in the mid-1990s and is credited by Nick Szabo himself as an inspiration (along with like-minded economist George Selgin).
White will present his important new book Better Money: Gold, Fiat, or Bitcoin?, with a Q&A session to follow.
