Please Donate! True confession: I have now taken up with the neoconservatives and other enemies of the Mises Institute. We’ve got to smash the MI. Here’s my plan to undermine the Mises Institute. First, we’ve got to get so many students applying to and attending Mises University, and the Austrian Scholars Conference, that the paltry edifice they have created in Auburn, AL, at great expense will be exposed as the vastly underbuilt facility that it really is (at least compared to the need for its services). How can we do this? By sending the Mises Institute large donations, so that... Continue ReadingRelated posts:
In every country the socialists have become office seekers, aiming to get hold of the reins of government by parliamentary methods, and for no other purpose than to enjoy the prerogatives and perquisites of office.

You have only a few years to live and cannot hope to remake society in so short a time. Nobody now living will see a free society in America. But, in fighting for it, one can have a lot of fun. Consider the effort as a legacy to your great-grandchildren.

QE2 is a direct response to deficit spending, which obliges the government to issue more bonds. With QE2, the Fed supports the state by buying these bonds. The Fed thereby actively helps the government in its Keynesian policies, which disrupt recovery.

Filed under: Any press is good press I had a letter published in Saturday’s edition of The Columbus Dispatch. I simply stated my views on a story about a local university researcher who is actively pushing a climate change agenda. Nothing too over-the-top in my letter. And nary a mention of my economic or political views or affiliations. Just Jim Public adding his voice to the discussion. Today the paper published a response and I find out that I am a “Libertarian extremist, a follower of the kooky Austrian School of economics and a former member and continuing collaborator of...

Jeffrey Tucker noted that Murphy’s Human Action Study Guide finished seventh on the 2010 Mises bestseller list. In his write up on the book, Tucker noted that “it permits [him] to give well-organized, impromptu lectures on any aspect of economics.” I couldn’t agree more. I use the book to review and prepare for my small version of Isaiah’s Job. A friend of mine teaches evening classes on economics at a local university. Sympathetic to the Austrian school, though not a convert or an apostle, he invites me and another friend – a state administrator – to provide overviews of competing... Continue ReadingRelated posts:
Jeff Rigenbach has a good audio review of Yale anthropologist James C. Scott’s recent book The Art of Not Being Governed. Riggenbach states, “This book seems to have attracted no attention at all from libertarians. Yet this is a book libertarians with an enthusiasm for history will find very very interesting indeed.” Riggenbach is right that this book is well worth reading. And the book is being highlighted in a forthcoming symposium edited by Chris Coyne in the Review of Austrian Economics. Contributors include Benjamin Powell and Malavika Nair. In “Repelling states: Evidence from upland Southeast Asia,” Caleb Miles and... Continue ReadingRelated posts:
It may not be as noteworthy as Time’s Person of the Year, but CNN appears to have actually stuck to the results of its voting in selecting WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange their “Most Intriguing Person of the Year.” Though the article spends much of its time carping about whether Assange is a hero or a ...
At the behest of pharmaceutical companies, the European Union is poised to ban competing natural and herbal remedies from the marketplace. Daniel Hannan, a member of the European Parliament for England, sounds the alarm in the London Telegraph: Some products will be proscribed outright; others subjected to a prohibitively expensive licensing regime. Why is the EU criminalising a harmless activity pursued by 20 million Europeans? [ . . . ] Three factors are in play. First, Eurocrats love regulating things. The argument that you should leave well alone – that herbalists have no interest in poisoning their customers, that the... Continue ReadingRelated posts:
