Mises Academy: Tom DiLorenzo teaches Competition, Monopoly, and Antitrust: The Austrian Perspective
Among the things students will learn is what F.A. Hayek meant when he said that "in perfect competition there is no competition"; how antitrust regulation has been a protectionist racket from the very beginning; how, for more than a century, antitrust regulation has handicapped American entrepreneurs to the benefit of their foreign competitors; how Ludwig von Mises's understanding of competition as a dynamic, rivalrous process was a key to his critique of socialism; how regulation in general short-circuits free-market efforts to solve economic problems through the competitive process; the role of the economics profession in concocting myriad myths about the free market; and how, as Murray Rothbard wrote, "the antitrust laws ... do not in the least 'diminish monopoly'" but rather "impose a continual, capricious harassment of efficient business enterprise."

According to Loyola University economist Thomas J. DiLorenzo, "Although wholesale electricity prices have been deregulated, retail prices have not, and regulation has all but prohibited the building of additional electricity supply capacity.
In addition he says, "The population has doubled in the past ten years, which has caused about a one-third increase in electricity demand, whereas supply has remained stagnant thanks to the environmentalist extremists in the state government.

Thomas DiLorenzo: Lincoln mythology is the ideological cornerstone of American statism. He was in reality the most hated of all American presidents during his lifetime according to an excellent book by historian Larry Tagg entitled The Unpopular Mr. Lincoln: America's Most Reviled President. He was so hated in the North that the New York Times editorialized a wish that he would be assassinated. This is perfectly understandable: He illegally suspended Habeas Corpus and imprisoned tens of thousands of Northern political critics without due process; shut down over 300 opposition newspapers; committed treason by invading the Southern states (Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution defines treason as "only levying war upon the states" or "giving aid and comfort to their enemies," which of course is exactly what Lincoln did). He enforced military conscription with the murder of hundreds of New York City draft protesters in 1863 and with the mass execution of deserters from his army. He deported a congressional critic (Democratic Congressman Clement Vallandigham of Ohio); confiscated firearms; and issued an arrest warrant for the Chief Justice when the jurist issued an opinion that only Congress could legally suspend Habeas Corpus. He waged an unnecessary war (all other countries ended slavery peacefully in that century) that resulted in the death of as many as 850,000 Americans according to new research published in the last two years.

Thomas DiLorenzo: Yes, the Lincoln cult is getting desperate.
...
Thomas DiLorenzo: Yes, the Lincoln myth is the ideological cornerstone of "American exceptionalism" and has long been invoked by both major political parties to "justify" anything and everything.
...
Thomas DiLorenzo: The state cannot tell the people that it is bankrupting them and sending their sons and daughters to die by the thousands in aggressive and unconstitutional wars so that crony capitalism can be imposed at gunpoint in foreign countries, and so that the military-industrial complex can continue to rake in billions.
...
Thomas DiLorenzo: Lincoln spent his entire life in politics, from 1832 until his dying day, as a lobbyist for the American banking industry and the Northern manufacturing corporations that wanted cheaper credit funded by a government-run bank.
...
Thomas DiLorenzo: I don't usually answer "when did you stop beating your wife"-type questions since they always come from people with I.Q.s in the single digits.

Thomas DiLorenzo: War is always destructive to a nation's economy regardless of whether it wins or loses the war.
...
Thomas DiLorenzo: I prefer not to answer anonymous questions like this. Who says this, and what is his or her credibility? Any credentials?
...
Thomas DiLorenzo: There is no such thing as "Britain" that backed or did not back the South.
...
Thomas DiLorenzo: Since bankers are bankers and not journalists and writers, there is no way of knowing their views on this question without a written record.

Thomas DiLorenzo: I have no idea.

Thomas DiLorenzo: Davis was not a dictator.
...
Thomas DiLorenzo: No, it was Lincoln who launched an invasion of the Southern states.
...
Thomas DiLorenzo: Yes.
Daily Bell: Okay, let's turn to your recent book, False Virtue: The Myths that Transformed America From A Republic to an Empire. Can you explain what this is about to our readers and why you wrote it?
Thomas DiLorenzo: That's something that I'm still working on. I plan on putting into book form the story of how the Lincoln myth has been used for the past 150 years or so to prop up American foreign policy imperialism.
Daily Bell: What are you working on now, if anything?
Thomas DiLorenzo: Besides this, I'm working on a book on the politics and economics of war.
Daily Bell: Do you still believe that secession is in the offing for several or more of "these united States"? Will it come without bloodshed?
Thomas DiLorenzo: Thank God for the former serfs of the Soviet empire that they only had a totalitariancommunist like Gorbachev to deal with and not a Lincoln.

Thomas DiLorenzo: The booboisie in America for the time being seems happy to endure whatever additional enslavements the federal government proposes for them. That may change, however, when there is hyperinflation and their healthcare system is destroyed by Obama's socialized medicine, or if one of the tiny and relatively defenseless countries that the US government is perpetually picking on figures out a way to retaliate in a big way. That just might cause the booboisie to finally ask such questions as: "Do my children really have to be sacrificed and sent to their deaths so that people in Syria can be ruled by a different dictator chosen by the CIA?"
Daily Bell: Isn't secession a lawful, constitutional right?
Thomas DiLorenzo: Article 7 of the Constitution explains that the document was to be ratified by the "free and independent states," as they are called in the Declaration of Independence.
...
Thomas DiLorenzo: Yes, without a doubt. That's why some of the most obnoxious and tyrannical of our politicians, like Obama, Lieberman, McCain and Schumer, seem to be constantly conniving to somehow censor or shut down the internet "for national security reasons."
Daily Bell: How many real "nations" does the US encompass?
Thomas DiLorenzo: Time will tell.
...
Thomas DiLorenzo: I think we are seeing the collapse of the EU and the Euro along with the European welfare state. We should all pray that it happens a thousand times faster.
Daily Bell: How about China?
Thomas DiLorenzo: China is now more capitalist than the US and its government is less tyrannical than the government in Washington, DC.
Daily Bell: Is the Internet helping to cause these "devolutions"?
Thomas DiLorenzo: When the AFL-CIO conspired with the Catholic Church in Poland to subvert communism they smuggled fax machines into the country so that the anti-communists could plot and communicate. The internet makes all of this infinitely easier to accomplish.
Daily Bell: Is the 21st century more hopeful than the 20th and 19th when it comes to large-scale wars and manipulation of various electorates in the West and elsewhere?
Thomas DiLorenzo: One virtue of the 19th century was that the public school brainwashing bureaucracy was not yet very well developed. It certainly is today, which is why America has become such a nation of statist sheep.
Daily Bell: Is the current system of Fiat Money Power on the way out? If so, what will take its place?
Thomas DiLorenzo: Yes.
...
Thomas DiLorenzo: It is still the ideological cornerstone of American statism, but we are making progress.
Daily Bell: Will the US revert to a freer, more self-sufficient model?
Thomas DiLorenzo: Only if peaceful secession is allowed to occur.
Daily Bell: Is the pre-Civil War US model a template for a more viable society in the future?
Thomas DiLorenzo: Minus slavery, of course. The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union were far superior to the Constitution that replaced them (and which omitted the world "perpetual").
Daily Bell: Can we ever go back? Is history linear or cyclical?
Thomas DiLorenzo: I don't believe in such determinism. We can correct mistakes. We DID deregulate oil and transportation in the 1980s; socialism DID collapse worldwide in the late '80s/early '90s and was replaced by more market-oriented regimes.
Daily Bell: Any other comments or predictions?
Thomas DiLorenzo: The Republican Party will continue to become more and
