15 września w Izbie Gmin Parlamentu Brytyjskiego odbyło się pierwsze czytanie projektu ustawy "Financial Services (Regulation of Deposits and Lending) Bill" Douglasa Carswella. Poseł powołał się m.in. na Mises Institute i J.H. de Soto. Oto fragment przemówienia:
"Since the credit crunch hit us, an endless succession of economists, most of whom did not see it coming, have popped up on our TV screens to explain its causes with great authority. Most have tended to see the lack of credit as the problem, rather than as a symptom. Perhaps we should instead begin to listen to those economists who saw the credit glut that preceded the crash as the problem. The Cobden Centre, the Ludwig von Mises Institute and Huerta de Soto all grasped that the overproduction of bogus candy-floss credit before the crunch gave rise to it. It is time to take seriously their ideas on honest money and sound banking".
