Specific to “Currency Conundrum”:

3. David Barker said, “central planning doesn’t work as well as markets.” What does this mean? Explain why you agree or disagree.

4. What do you think about the idea of private money? How do you think it would work? If people were free to use whatever money they trusted, do you think competition would provide incentives for people offering private money to retain the value of their currency and to avoid inflation?

Specific to “A History of Booms and Busts”:

5. According to Stephen Davies, when central banks manipulate the money supply artificial pressure is placed on interest rates since the market is not determining the equilibrium interest rate. This theory helps explains malinvestments. Is this a justifiable theory? Defend your answer.
