Austrian School supporter Tom Woods apparently had no time to attend a 2012 Bitcoin conference, as this post reveals:
“Here was Tom Woods’ response to an invitation to attend Bitcoin 2012:
“Dear [redacted] (if I may),
I am mortified at how long it’s taken me to get back to you. I am getting so much email these days I can’t possibly keep on top of it.
While I genuinely appreciate the invitation, I’ll have to decline. The whole Bitcoin issue is something I need to read about and give some thought to, and in the near future, with major projects and deadlines all over the place, I won’t be in the proper frame of mind to do so.
Yet he apparently had time to engage in a false gold standard dialectic, as I wrote about in my article, The Huffington Post-Tom Woods controlled opposition gold standard debate, and to misrepresent the record of government-issued currencies, as most recently demonstrated by his article, Why the Greenbackers are Wrong. I most recently discussed such misrepresentation in my appearance on Doug Newberry’s Crisis of Reality on January 24, 2013.
Even Lew Rockwell has gotten with the times and embraced donations to his website, through his secret paywall, with a privately-created currency not backed by some precious metal.
