Our week-long Mises University begins this Sunday night, and all keynote lectures will stream free via or our Facebook page. The week kicks-off with Tom Woods Sunday night, followed by Judge Andrew Napolitano Monday evening. So plan on tuning-in: the full schedule is here!

Dr. Robert Higgs delivered one of our most popular and most-watched Mises U speeches in 2013, a terrific exposition entitled "The State is too Dangerous to Tolerate". It's an intellectual tour de force from Higgs, where he demolishes many of the popular misconceptions about (and justifications for) the state in one compelling talk. This is Dr. Higgs at his most formidable, and well worth an hour of your time, this weekend. It's the kind of content that you won't hear anywhere else.

Note: The views expressed on are not necessarily those of the Mises Institute.
