The Week in Review: November 28, 2015
From everyone at the Mises Institute, we’d like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving weekend!
Even our readers outside of the US can agree, the Thanksgiving lessons of free enterprise and the beauty of abundance are of universal importance (as is knowing how to best communicate with family during the holidays!) This weekend is also a good time for us to reflect on all the many things we have to be thankful for: from the incredible supporters we’ve met during this year’s sold-out Mises Circles, to our phenomenal group of Mises Fellows, Rothbard Graduate Seminar attendants, and 2015 Mises University class, to the continued spread of Misesian ideas around the world — the Austrian school is thriving today and it is because of people like you.
Thank you for your time, your support, and your passion for the cause of Austrian economics, freedom, and peace.
Mises Weekends this week focuses on libertarian strategy and how we can continue to make gains in the name of liberty. During our Phoenix Mises Circle, Jeff Deist gave his thoughts on the question, “What Must Be Done?”
