Murphy Formally Withdrawing from the Auburn-Fairfax Peace Treaty

Summary:
Several years ago, a bunch of Austrian economists affiliated with the Mises Institute agreed to a peace treaty with a bunch of economists affiliated with George Mason University. At the time, there had just been a really ugly online battle, not so much between the actual professional economists, but among their fan bases. Although I remember well why we did it, I now am formally announcing my withdrawal from the treaty. To be sure, I will not engage in unprovoked aggression or other acts in violation of Internet etiquette, but I want to have a free hand in criticizing Tyler Cowen in my next blog post. Being Lawful Good in my D&D alignment, I felt it necessary to make this announcement first.
