*The New Austrian School of Economics (NASE) is not accredited. NASE was founded by Professor Antal Fekete, who previously taught mathematics at the University of Newfoundland and other accredited universities, as a forum in which he could teach his radical, new approach to monetary science. Professor Fekete is one of two examiners of Keith Weiner’s dissertation. The other is NASE faculty member Professor Juan Ramon Rallo, professor of economics at accredited King Juan Carlos University in Madrid.
