Mises Book Club

September 5, 2023Auburn, AL

In September 2023, the Mises Institute will hold the inaugural meeting of the Mises Book Club, its newest program to promote deep reading in Austrian economics. 

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Murray Rothbard's For a New Liberty: The Libertarian Manifesto, this iconic Austrolibertarian text will be the focus of our inaugural meeting.

For eight riveting weeks, ten to fifteen specially selected undergraduate students will partake in rich discussions led by a Mises faculty member with expertise on the book. The Club will meet virtually every Tuesday evening from 5-6 p.m. central time, and students will receive complimentary hard copies of the book. Students will come away with a stronger understanding of the causes of current economic issues and the consequences of ongoing interventionist policy.

Please apply for a position in the Mises Book Club by Friday, August 4. Decisions will be communicated to all applicants by Friday, August 18. The first meeting will be on Tuesday, September 5.

Important Note: all applicants agree to abide by the Mises Institute's Visiting Scholar Manual.
