At tonight's Soho Forum, economists George Selgin and Robert Murphy are debating fractional reserve banking.
The proposition: "Fractional reserve banking, whether practiced under a gold standard or in a modern fiat-money system, poses a threat to the stability of market economies." Murphy is arguing the affirmative, and Selgin the negative.
It's an Oxford-style debate, so audience members vote before and after the event, and the contestant who convinces the most people to switch sides wins.
