Elections took place across the country this past Tuesday with some interesting results. Voters in Ohio decided they hated monopolies more than they liked marijuana, while residents in Houston voted down the left’s latest egalitarian menace. While there is never a reason to trust the empty promises of pandering politicians, elections can occasionally offer insight into who is winning the battle for ideas. So there may be reason for optimism when you see Hawaiians’ discussing secession or the fact that there is global momentum in the fight against prohibition. While central planners struggle — both in the US and abroad — to maintain the status quo, bad government will never be able to repeal good economics.

The question then turns to how to we advance the cause of Austrian economics, peace, and freedom? That is the topic of this weekends’ Mises Circle in Phoenix, Arizona. One of our speakers, Dr. William Boyes, joined Jeff Deist this week to offer a preview of his talk. The founder of Arizona State University’s Center for Economic Liberty and a successful author of economics textbooks, Dr. Boyes discusses how to advance liberty and capitalism in the face of a statist educational system. One option — our new Online Mises Boot Camp!

In case you missed any of them, here are this week’s featured Mises Daily articles and some of our most popular articles at Mises Wire:
