Lubbock Liberty Workshop With Dr. Alexander Salter Money And The Rule Of Law

Lubbock Liberty held a Workshop on September 26, 2015 at the Mahon Public Library focusing on economics with "Money and the Rule of Law" featuring Dr. Alexander W. Salter! Dr. Salter, Assistant Professor of Economics in the Jerry S. Rawls College of Business Administration at Texas Tech University and Comparative Economics Research Fellow for the Free Market Institute, also at Texas Tech, discussed several facets of failed monetary policy and some potential alternatives.

Our financial situation is probed, including discussion on the Federal Reserve System, Free Banking, debt, and what the rule of law does in public and private economies. The audience is also involved in the workshop, asking important questions and making interesting points to help foster dialogue during and after Dr. Salter's presentation.

"Money And The Rule Of Law"

Saturday, September 26, 2015
Mahon Public Library
In the Community Meeting Room
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Lubbock, TX 79401

Dr. Alexander W. Salter joined the faculty of the Jerry S. Rawls College of Business Administration at Texas Tech University in Fall 2015. He is also the Comparative Economics Research Fellow at the Free Market Institute, also at Texas Tech. Prior to this he taught at Berry College, in the Campbell School of Business.

Dr. Salter received his B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, from Occidental College in 2010. He then attended George Mason University for graduate school, earning a M.A. in 2012 and Ph.D. in 2014. Dr. Salter wrote his dissertation, titled ‘Essays on the Political Economy of Monetary Institutions and Policy,’ under Professor Lawrence H. White.

His research interests fall into two categories: monetary institutions and policy, and the economics of governance. Dr. Salter's goal in monetary research is to discover monetary regimes that maintain macroeconomic stability, but also adhere to the rule of law, and rely on realistic appraisals of the incentives and information confronting market actors and policymakers. His perspective on monetary economics is heavily influenced by thinkers in the Austrian tradition, such as Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek, as well as the monetary disequilibrium theory of Leland Yeager. Alexander's goal in governance research is to discover governance regimes where the governors have the information and incentives necessary to act in the interests of the governed. His perspective on governance is heavily influenced by the Virginia school of political economy, especially the work of James Buchanan and Gordon Tullock, as well as recent work in private governance.

In addition to conducting scholarly research, Dr. Salter also serves as an adjunct program officer with the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University, a project fellow with the Atlas Sound Money Project, and an associate editor of the Journal of Private Enterprise.
