Rothbard Graduate Seminar<br/>(Sponsored by Alice J. Lillie)

The purpose of the Rothbard Graduate Seminar is to provide an intense study of Rothbardian economic analytics, along with the substantive conclusions of that research in related fields.

The core text is Man, Economy, and State with Power and Market, which each student will receive.  

Attendance is limited to a small number of exceptional students who are pursuing graduate degrees in economics, history, philosophy, political science, and business disciplines and who seek a career in academia or research.
