Coordination Problem bloggers Steve, Pete, Chris and I will be lecturing this upcoming week at the Advanced Seminar in Austrian Economics at the Foundation for Economic Education. The highlight of the week for the participants will undoubtedly be the two lectures by Israel Kirzner on Tuesday. Roger Garrison, Mario Rizzo and Larry White round out the faculty for the seminar.
|Peter Boettke|On Monday August 2nd, the Foundation for Economic Education will host again the summer seminar in Austrian economics. These seminars owe their origins to the academic entrepreneurship of Israel M. Kirzner, and have been located through the years in Boulder, Co., Milwaukee, Wisc., Irvington, NY, New York City, and for more than the past decade back in Irvington at the FEE campus.
|Peter Boettke|For the past few years I have been stressing to my graduate students the difference between Austrian economics and Austrian economics, mainly to highlight the career advantages of focusing their efforts on contributing to economics. However, I am always quick to point out that both are legitimate and worthy of serious research.
By Shareholders Unite:Austrian economists like Peter Schiff and Jim Grant propose non-intervention combined with a return to the Gold Standard as a solution for the economic crisis. This is basically the recipe that has been let loose on the eurozone periphery, and the result is an unmitigated disaster, but it warrants a larger treatment.
By Shareholders Unite:In a couple of articles we'll investigate the tenets of Austrian economics, more especially those of Peter Schiff, as he prominently represents that school of economic thought.Austrian economics, although a rather diverse group, holds as one of its strongest beliefs that the government can't do anything to stabilize the economy, which is a considerably more radical view than that of monetarists like Milton Friedman.
