    I’ve been very busy moving but I have plenty of questions. When things calm down, I’ll get to them. In the meantime, I just wanted to say thanks for doing this series and that I’m still reading.

    Very interesting series and application of Marxian theory to the HI vs. deflation debate.

    You (and others) may also be interested in this critique of Freegold (and near-term dollar HI) that I have been writing, as well as my general views on the future of roles/values of gold, which applies a lot of Marxian and Post-Keynesian theory in the analysis. It is entitled “The Future of Physical Gold” and published on The Automatic Earth:

    Part I – Dialectic Foundations (fair warning: very abstract and theoretical)


    Part II – The Evolution of Value (primarily focuses on Marx’s commodity dialectic)


    Part III – The Final Realization (primarily focuses on Marx’s “realization problem” and Minsky’s Financial Instability Hypothesis)


    Part IV – Deflationary Canyons and Caves


    Part V (final part) to be published soon… most likely this weekend.

    Hey, I ran across this while studying this issue. I enjoyed your perspective I thought you might be interested in his latest post, ‘Moneyness’, where he addresses MMT, which I think you will find interesting:


    Further, It’s my understanding of FOFOA that he believes the Euro was designed to usher in dollar hyperinflation and Freegold.
