In this first installment of a two-part interview, Jeff Deist and Joseph T. Salerno discuss the health and vitality of the Austrian school, the impact of the South Royalton conference, Joe's relationship with and memories of Rothbard, and why so many factions seem to persist within Austrian economics. Joe also gives some great insights into the state of academia, whether it's wise for libertarians to pursue a PhD, and the tactical advantage of targeting intelligent laypeople.
