The year-long course is designed by Professor Robert Murphy (PhD, NYU) who teaches economics at Hillsdale College. Each week covers one topic discussed in an hour-long lecture and related readings. It includes study questions to guide your learning and research. The audio lectures were selected from among hundreds of hours of lectures so that you are given access to the best of the best, with lectures by great Austrian economists ranging over 30 years. In other words, it gives you what no live classroom can, which is the opportunity to study with a huge faculty of specialists and their speeches over a long span of time.

The lessons are divided into these general areas: The Core of Austrian Theory, Ethical Foundations, Applied Economic Topics, Government Distortions, Economic History, Alternative Schools of Thought, and Perspectives on the Past and Future. Within each are the 52 lectures, tied to readings from the Austrian literature.
