Reply To: Rothbard as a historian


His book on the Panic of 1819 is the leader in the field. I’m not thrilled with his evaluations of matters such as George Washington’s role in American history, etc., where he often seems to reason thus:

1) Government is bad;
2) George Washington was in the government;
3) George Washington was bad.

After a few trips around that bush, the trip becomes rather dizzying.
