That is the question I have subsequent to my public and private offer to Tom Woods to moderate a debate between himself and Anthony Migchels of Real Currencies.

As I disclosed at the start of my March 31, 2013 interview with Anthony Migchels, Tom Woods didn’t accept, and the reasons weren’t because he was concerned I wasn’t a worthy moderator, or that Anthony Migchels wasn’t a worthy debater, or that he wasn’t available at the proposed time.

Tom Woods supports a debate between fellow Austrian School supporter Bob Murphy and Paul Krugman.

Just as Paul Krugman may not be interested in giving a platform to his critics in the Austrian School, perhaps Tom Woods is also not interested in giving a platform to a well-researched, voluntary, interest-free currency reformer such as Anthony Migchels.

I saw that the registration fee was $750 CAD. Ouch! Oh sure, you get to hear from several internationally distinguished speakers including Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman, and rub elbows with local movers and shakers. But what about the 8.7% unemployed Canadians or 9.8% unemployed Americans? Is such a conference at the top of their to-do list? Yet, the inclusion of some of them and the far greater number not even included in the cooked statistics is imperative for moving towards a global new deal. At least, one that is truly progressive and inclusive.
