Rothbard Graduate Seminar

This June, the Mises Institute hosted nineteen students at our annual Rothbard Graduate Seminar in Auburn, Alabama. This year's topic was the Austrian critique of progressive economic interventionism. Structured as a great book seminar, this year focused on Murray Rothbard's Power and Market: Government and Economy, along with excerpts from America's Great Depression and Economic Controversies. The RGS faculty included Joseph Salerno, Mark Thornton, David Gordon, Jeff Herbener, Peter Klein, and Patrick Newman.

This year's RGS cohort included rising scholars from a variety of fields, including economics, history, law, and business. Six are enrolled in the Mises Graduate Program. Students came not only from around the US, but also from Asia, Europe, and South America.

Austrian Economics Meeting Europe

Founded by European Mises U alumni in 2015, Austrian Economics Meeting Europe is a premier scholars conference for Austrian talent on the Continent. Held in Vilnius, Lithuania for the first time since 2019, the conference featured two-days’ worth of paper presentations as well as keynote lectures by Guido Hülsmann and Aliaksandr Kavaliou. Unfortunately since Dr. Kavaliou teaches in Belarus, the event faced cancellation from the Lithuanian university originally set to host the event.

The Mises Institute was proud to support Austrian European scholars pursuing intellectual freedom during these difficult times. Thank you to Dr. Karl-Friedrich Israel for writing this nice article thanking and explaining the difficulties the conference faced.

America’s History: A Tuttle Twins Series of Stories is a 240-page storybook that presents inspiring stories and powerful ideas from our nation’s past, to help empower your children to live their best lives today. It is inspired by Murray Rothbard’s Conceived in Liberty series.

Events

On May 24, the Mises Institute returned to Orlando, Florida, to celebrate this year's release of Bob Murphy's Understanding Money Mechanics. As inflation has become the number one issue in America, it is more important than ever before to understand how the state's control of money and banking infects so much of our society. As Bob illustrated during his keynote address, the financial pain Americans are feeling today isn't the consequence of Vladimir Putin or covid. It is the direct result of reckless policies, promoted by central bankers, over the course of several presidencies—problem beyond politics, and one that requires changing the way our society fundamentally views money.

The event also featured a panel on the absolute state of money, featuring Mises associated scholars, Patrick Newman, Demelza Hays, and Peter St. Onge, which considered pressing monetary questions from the lenses of history, policy, and technological innovation.
