I don't think it would be an exaggeration to say that this is a historic event in economics education, and a mind-boggling opportunity for fans of Austrian Economics.
This course is systematic study of the fundamentals of Austrian Economics. As well as being an excellent introduction to economic reasoning, principles, and advanced concepts on its own, it is the first of a series of courses that will cover the definitive textbook on Austrian Economics, Murray Rothbard’s Man, Economy, and State, in its entirety. This series of courses will provide a comprehensive education in sound economic science. This particular course covers the first 4 chapters (318 pages) of Man, Economy, and State (“Fundamentals of Human Action”, “Direct Exchange”, “The Pattern of Indirect Exchange”, and “Prices and Consumption”).
I'll be there!
That's great JonnyD!
Just registed :)
I stopped signing up for David Gordon's epistemology course at the last second because I saw this course was in the pipeline. Hope that its offered again sometime in the future so I can take that as well.
This online course starts tomorrow! Don't miss this chance to dive into Man, Economy, and State, the definitive textbook on Austrian Economics with economist Robert Murphy, the author of the treatise's study guide, as your tutor!
Every year students fly across the country and over oceans to get this kind of an in-depth exploration of Austrian economic science at the Rothbard Graduate Seminar in Auburn. This is your chance to receive that kind of instruction from the comfort of your own home.
I too considered this "historic" when I first heard about it; the Mises Academy is evolving into a truly breakthrough technology for Austro-libertarianism.
If only they would let David Friedman or someone have a course on mainstream economics! I'd sign up!
