Liberty vs. Leviathan

Chronicling Liberty's battle against Leviathan

Irish go Austrian

Freedom lovers are everywhere.

Graham, of the Irish Liberty Forum, notes that as predicted a free fall in financial stocks was a risk associated with banning short-selling and could have been slowed had short sellers been in the market and covered their positions on the way down.

A commenter predicts that, “Next they’ll prevent people from selling their shares!”  Stranger things.

Be sure to see too Rothbard’s prediction from 1991.

    Thanks for the link, Rowman. Irish bank stocks have continued their jagged collapse since that rule was put into place (today AIB -13%, Bank of Ireland -18%, Anglo Irish Bank -33%). I will be sending links back to you now. Hope to stay in touch!
