Theme of speech:
Doug French will combine Austrian Business Cycle Theory with real life, discussing the real estate boom created by central bank policies of the last decade as it happened in Las Vegas. After writing his thesis under Murray Rothbard at UNLV on speculative bubbles, Mr. French was an eye witness to the boom and crash, working as a banker in Las Vegas.

Douglas E. French writes for Casey Research and is also an Associated Scholar with the Johnson Center, Troy University. He is the author of three books; Early Speculative Bubbles and Increases in the Supply of Money, The Failure of Common Knowledge, and Walk Away: The Rise and Fall of the Home-Ownership Myth. Doug is the former president of the Ludwig von Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama.
