“Let me be represented as one who trusts his senses, who thinks he knows the things he sees and feels, and entertains no doubts of their existence.” -- Bishop Berkeley
I read Rothbard's history of economic thought (the first volume, at least) around two years ago... I don't think I've read very many Austrians take on the history of economic thought since. It's honestly made me lose confidence in what I read -- it's hard for me to take a lot of criticisms of other ideas seriously, when I can't even be sure that the criticism attacks the actual idea. Salerno's recent post on free banking solidifies this fear.
