What colleges have economics courses that teach Austrian theory or at least discuss it? Why isn't this theory more prevalent in the classroom? I browsed through a co-workers text earlier and wasn't surprised to see a bunch of Keynsian hocus pocus but when we discussed it at work, I was being told that teachers pretty much have full reign on which texts they choose to use in their classroom. So where are all the Austrian theory texts at?
I know this one!

I wonder, if a professor was teaching solely Austrian theory in a public school, would this be ok to do? This site shines a very bright light on how the state distorts markets and how it always negatively impacts, so what I'm imagining is a public college setting where this is being taught but honestly can't imagine it lasting very long, being that public schools obtain most of their funding from the state. Or am I wrong and that if a teacher really was 100% Austrian, provided textbooks that were only promoting Austrian theory, as long as the students were ok with that, he or she wouldn't be asked to leave or told to teach something else by a dean, board, or what have you?
Have actual Austrian Programs or Austrian professors:
New York University
George Mason University
Florida State University
University of Auburn
University of Nevada
Many schools will "discuss" it.
Grove City also teaches exclusively Austrian economics.
Tom Woods's Liberty Classroom has Austiran Economics! I haven't used it, but I hear it's awesome. My friends seem to be learning a lot from it. And it's a lot cheaper than college. :)
Apparently, Loyola University in New Orleans, where Walter Block teaches.
Hillsdale College has an Austrian class, as well as several Austrian professors on the faculty. Most of the econ classes at Hillsdale focus on the Austrian perspective.
