About The Author

Hey, I’m Cameron Harwick. This is the part where I’m supposed to tell you I’m passionate. Instead, I’d like to let my writing stand for itself.

I live in Fairfax, where I study economics at George Mason University. You can get a pretty good overview of my broad-level perspective on things on the Framework post, or dive right into the Best of the Blog below.

The blog is a way for me to hammer inchoate thoughts into concrete form. It also serves as source material for future writing. Posts are marked with a color, depending on their state of completion. Most start out in the middle, are demoted as they age, and promoted as I edit them.

The Cambridge Capital Controversy wasn’t kind to prewar capital theories Why it’s nonsensical to think of God as a dictator Why cryptocurrency is more like gold than paper, and what that suggests about the prospects for stabilization

And finally, various facts about myself, in no particular order:

Anything else you’d like to know, and the contact form is just a click away.

      It’s prob true that stamped coins became current at the behest of a taxing authority. But this was an incremental, not epochal, development.

      I’m starting to think that Chartalism is just the notion that money equals coinage, plus MMT for some reason.
