This debate has important policy consequences: proponents of exogenous causes of crises such as neoclassicals largely argue for minimal government policy or regulation ( laissez faire ), as absent these external shocks, the market functions, while proponents of endogenous causes of crises such as Keynesians largely argue for larger government policy and regulation, as absent regulation, the market will move from crisis to crisis. This division is not absolute – some classicals (including Say) argued for government policy to mitigate the damage of economic cycles, despite believing in external causes, while Austrian School economists argue against government involvement as only worsening crises, despite believing in internal causes.
The standard bike has bar-end shifters and a 9 speed setup for rugged use all year round although it can also be setup with STI levers or as a single-speed on request. The frame is also suitable for a Rohloff hub which is how we’re running ours currently. The Brooks saddle and lovely green finish make it look like it could have been dropped at Arnhem, and its guaranteed to draw attention wherever you choose to ride. If you know about mountain bikes this is worth a try. If you don’t want to know about mountain bikes but have off-road exploring in mind this could be the bike for you.
