 George Reisman on national income accounting: a correction American Journal of Economics and Sociology, The - Find ...
Reisman's problem is that he attributes his own confusion to others and then tries to correct them.
Reisman charges that "the accusation of 'double counting' should actually be directed at the prevailing conviction that the value of the final product counts not only itself but also the value of the intermediate products that have contributed to its production" (2004: 615q516).
Using Reisman's own example of a loaf of bread that sells for $6, having been produced with flour costing $5, and the latter having been derived from wheat costing $3, what macroeconomists say is that the $6 value of the bread covers the cost of the flour.

Reisman: That is a view held by a large school of economists, perhaps the majority school, for the last 60 years or so -- that's the Keynesian school -- but there are other economists like those in the Austrian school, which holds a very different position.
Reisman: No, it is definitely not a fact, and it displays considerable ignorance which leaves out of account any alternative point of view, and, in fact, it's easy to argue that deficits can pretty well worsen recessions with depression, because one of the main characteristics of any severe recession is widespread bankruptcy.
Reisman: They're responsible for causing unemployment and preventing people from gaining the job skills they would learn if they got a job, and keeping them unqualified, possibly, for their entire lives.

Reisman's ringing manifesto for laissez-faire capitalism free of all government intervention is at once a conservative polemic and a monumental treatise, brimming with original theories.
Reisman devotes special attention and its own chapter to the environmental movement, which he conceives as the ideological heirs of the socialists and for the present the most dangerous enemies.
Reisman on the one hand endorses the Marginal Utility theory of value, and seems to be completely oblivious to the fact that the Quantity Theory of Money rests on the common belief, taken over from Aristotle, that there can only be (fair) exchanges when equal values are exchanged to each other.

 More Reisman insights without George Reisman
In an earlier article, I showed how George Reisman is quoted verbatim without getting credit for the quote, and how his views on environmentalism are being used and paraphrased, again without giving him credit.
The fact that such a man as George Reisman exists, that he is a long time Objectivist, and that he has revolutionized economic theory, is obviously a closely guarded secret.
One of the points of Reisman’s theory is that, while individual profits by one capitalist shows that this individual capitalist has done a good job, a rise in the general rate of profit on the contrary shows that the economy is on its way downhill.

 George Reisman - Objectivism Online Forum   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
However, it does seem that some of Reisman and Packer's behavior was definitely, um, odd (to put it nicely), such as their objections to Peter Schwartz teaching a writing class on the grounds that they didn't approve of his qualifications in the fields of psychology and economics.
Anyway, while I do think their splitting with Reisman is probably unfortunate, I can't say that ARI was in the wrong (and by the available evidence, mostly from the other side, I would say that they were probably in the right).
It wasn't philosophical, Reisman seems to be in total agreement with Objectivism (he calls Fact and Value a brilliant article in his book), and it's not like either Reisman or Packer is actively attacking ARI or any Objectivist for that matter.

 Capitalism: A Treatise on Economics
On the foundation of these integrations, Dr. Reisman is able to develop the numerous major original contributions that the book presents on the subjects of profits, wages, saving, capital accumulation, aggregate economic accounting, monopoly, and natural resources, among other vital subjects.
For it is sure to constitute as wide and profound a challenge to the theoretical preconceptions of today's economists as it does to the political preconceptions of today's laymen.

Dr. Reisman's book (and many of his lectures, which you can purchase through his website (http://www.capitalism.net), are the best material I have seen on economics.
Skousen’s work is very similar to George Reisman’s Capitalism [which I highly recommend, but George has to come out with a version that’s split into three or four separate sections---just to make it easier to carry!]
I found Reisman's book to be in need of much more editing and integration, and saw it as overly polemical.

As George Reisman recently has pointed out, the statement is dead wrong if the implicit cost of sexual relations between spouses is added into GDP--as it should be, if it is also legitimate to include the implicit rent of owner-occupied housing.
George emphasized that these theories had an ethical meaning: "poverty, want, and starvation are by this theory not chargeable either to individual greed or to social maladjustments; they are the inevitable results of universal laws, with which...
George set out to show that because two of these laws were wrong, poverty was not inevitable; further, poverty could be ended by just laws that captured land rents for the public good.

In this excellent article, Dr. Reisman suggests that profits are not deducted from wages as the classical economists, and Marx, thought.
In a world without the capitalist, profits are the primary form of income.
Those concerned about the apparent widening gap between the incomes of the rich and poor sometimes fail to realize that the rich pay high percentages of taxes in society and they also provide the capital that raises standards of living for the relatively poor.

As follow-up to my letter of October 26, I would like to make these additional comments on how ARI is planning to spend, and currently is spending, contributor money to train future intellectuals.
And a key to understanding what these avenues are is George's suggestion (made at the opening banquet of TJS this summer) that three Objectivists at one university is all it would take to make a difference in changing a school's intellectual climate and in widening the path to philosophy departments.
This, of course, ties in with George's comments in his October 26 memo that these students need content courses.

 Capitalism
It is highly significant, then, that George Reisman has dedicated his remarkable book to "Ludwig von Mises, my teacher…." Professor Reisman, who teaches economics at Pepperdine University, is the translator of Mises’ Epistemological Problems in Economics ([1933] 1960), and spent many years in his weekly New York seminar.
Indeed, Professor Reisman adopts classically Randian ethics, viewing all human evil as an extension of "altruism" and all good flowing from "self interest." And unlike the mainstream Austrian writers, who were always careful to separate positive economics from normative matters of ethics, our author sees them bound up with each other by necessity.
The scope and vision of Professor Reisman’s treatise in defense of economic freedom is as broad as any book published in decades.

 Not PC: Markets don't fail, economists do -- just as Plato did
The non-existence of 'market failure' and 'perfectly competitive markets,' which don't exist in the real world, are the anti-matter to real markets and to real businessmen who do.
The doctrine of pure and perfect competion is called by George Reisman "platonic competition," since these destructive 'ideals' are a pure and perfect example of the Platonic "ideal of perfection" which draws from non-existence to serve as the "standard" for judging existence.
Reisman's two-part article on the subject make 'perfect' and very timely reading, and it does help to prove the contention that those who disregard philsophy are destined to be frequently bitten by it.
