Abstract

Richard Wagner (2000) is an attack on the Austrian business cycle (ABC) theory. Although I shall be defending the latter against the former, I welcome Wagner’s contribution to the debate on the Austrian theory of the business cycle. It provides a good background review, and provides us with an opportunity to further elaborate upon and clarify the theory.
