Mises University 2006

I was recently informed by the Mises Institute that I have received a scholarship to attend the Mises University 2006 session in the first week of August. It is an intense week of learning and deep scholarship of economics and philosophy, taught by the eminent scholars of the Mises Institute. This is an exciting and once-in-my-lifetime opportunity to learn more than I ever have before about the economics and classical liberal philosophy (to remind you, classical liberal is not leftist, like socialist democrats are).

The university is held at the Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama. Scholars teaching will include Thomas DiLorenzo, Robert Murphy, Thomas Woods, George Reisman, Hans Hermann-Hoppe, Walter Block, Joseph Salerno, Peter Klein, and more. Considering that I rarely get to talk to more than one or two people at a time who share my views on limited government and free-market economics, to me this is the equivalent of a 14 year old sports nut getting to hang out with Michael Jordan, Nolan Ryan, and Joe Montana for a week.
