Great news, Larry White, who has done a lot of work in advancing the theory of free banking will start teaching at my Alma Mater starting next fall.
Here is a bio of Larry in Wiki, and here is Larry's dissertation, "Free Banking in Britain" available free for download courtesy of IEA in England.
I met Larry a couple of times back in my graduate school days, twice when I visited the campus of U of Georgia where Larry used to teach, and once when I was attending a FEE Austrian Economics Seminar up in New York with my fellow classmate Wayne. Larry is a softspoken gentleman, and a graduate of UCLA.
HT to Taking Hayek Seriously for the pointer.
