My Upcoming Speech at Columbia University
Topic: Adam Smith, F.A. Hayek, Ludwig von Mises.
Smith, Hayek and Mises are not only important figures in economics, but in ethics and political philosophy too. The former would have won the Nobel Prize in economics, if this award were given during his lifetime. The middle mentioned one actually did have this honor bestowed upon him, in 1974. The latter should have won this too, but, scandalously, did not. These three are very important for students in that modern economics courses, and economists, tend to ignore all of them, particularly the latter two, who were members of the Austrian School of economics. Block’s lecture will attempt to right this imbalance.
Speaker: Dr. Walter Block Harold E. Wirth Eminent Scholar Endowed Chair and Professor of Economics Joseph A. Butt, S.J. College of Business, Loyola University New Orleans
