My Pre-fabrication. And it’s foundation.

This is different. Is it really?

No, not really!

[TRANSFERRED FROM PREVIOUS POST REPLY MODE]

QUESTION: Where does Austrian Economics fit into the real world?
Easier question: Where does Fight of the Century Round Two fit into economics or teaching?
BETTER QUESTION? I am open to suggestions.
What is the best lesson on “free-market” or “libertarian” economics?

MEANWHILE:  I am in the process of reviewing my posts here, as well as reviewing the History of Economic Playgroundhttp://ineteconomics.org/blog/playground interview series, see previous post.  I have viewed the videos without fulling reading the articles, and am now reviewing each of 1 through 4.  I am not sure that I originally viewed them in order or completely avoided the articles, but it turns out that the articles have a further perspective on the interview videos.

Before I weave further,  I decided to take an economic literacy test.  http://www.councilforeconed.org/cel/test/  I take it that missing 1 of 20 is not bad, but I don’t know what it wins me.  See First Impressions.   But the important intersection of threads regards the third link in First Impressions @ineteconomics.org  in the History of Economics Playground.   http://ineteconomics.org/blog/playground ]

The link in question:  http://ineteconomics.org/blog/playground/bretton-woods-past-and-present-4-teaching-economics   For me the video was important, and I needed to take the test to see if it was just me or the article that was problematic.  Actually it might be the subject(teaching), as well as the field(economics) or history that are problematic.  Quote:  “Tests in economic literacy were showing that people who had never taken an introductory course in economics had better results than those who had! ”  I was just curious where a person(myself) having done well in both Macro and Micro-economics, 250 A and B if I recall, would be.

Not to mention literal and economic loopiness – http://political_progress_for_people.blogspot.com/2011/09/un-exceptionalism.html  

THE LEARNING FIELD:

See second paragrap’s link above for 4 on teaching.

A call of sorts: http://ineteconomics.org/blog/playground/call-arms-historians-and-economists

And a test of fields:  http://political_progress_for_people.blogspot.com/search?q=fight+of+century 

But I will sort: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTQnarzmTOc  Fight of the Century: Keynes vs. Hayek Round Two

[Enough context, but a hint in con text, but as to anachronism, I have just updated First Impressions in Respect to danger fields. ]
