This is the place for airport ride-sharing and other info exchange for students and faculty attending MU 09.
hey, I'm fairly new to Austrian Economics and Libertarianism as a whole and just would like to connect with other like-minded individuals out there. I will be attending MU 09 and would just like to get a feel for who else is going. You can either reply to this post or email me directly if you'd like. As for a little bit about myself: I'm 19 and currently a second year student at Albion College in Michigan majoring in Economics and Management. The only economics taught here is Keynesian propoganda, so finding the Austrian Economics was a breath of fresh air. Hope to hear from some of you soon.
Is anyone going to the Advanced Austrian seminar at FEE after Mises U? My brother and I are flying to New York, arriving at 4pm on Aug 2 at LaGuardia airport. Just wondering if anyone wants to share a ride from the airport to FEE. (On the way back, we'll have to be at LaGuardia by at least 2pm on Aug 8.)
I'll be going to that seminar at FEE, but I'll be arriving on August 3rd at LaGuardia. Are you staying somewhere else for a day? Also, is anyone else here going?
Hi ziragt, we've arranged to arrive at FEE a day early. In the FEE acceptance email they mention that if you need to come a day early, they can provide accomodations. So that's what we're doing. Where are you staying the night of the 2nd?
Well, I was planning on taking a morning flight on the 3rd, so the ride sharing probably won't work out.
Can I make a prediction?
LvMI is going to need a bigger building... </ lol>
If anyone else is going to FEE, here are the rates for the transportation that they suggest (for travel between LaGuardia and FEE):
Westchester Express: $46 for first passenger, $20 per additional person, plus tip (20%)
Dominick’s Limousine: $122 for a ride; includes everything (fare, tolls and tip); up to 4 people in the car.
Knapp McCarthy Taxi Service: $71 + ~$12 (for tolls) + tip; up to 4 people.
Considering we'll be coming with fairly substantial luggage, we may not be able to fit 4 people in the cars for Dominick's or Knapp's. Westchester is a larger shuttle van so it would probably be most cost effective to book as a group (gets cheaper with each additional person).
There's a facebook group up now: Mises U 2009
I'm going to drive to Mises U. I live near Austin, TX. If anyone is interested in riding with me, please let me know.

Tom Woods said at the Seattle C4L event that the Institute was having to increase it's capacity. Very exciting. I will try to make it to ASC one day. Hopefully it won't be so exclusive that I have to pay a scalper a premium!
I wish I could of went this year but before I read about this event the deadline already passed. I would very much like to present a paper at the March seminar coming up. Dr. Woods inspired me to write a paper both on either American Unionism or both Roosevelt presidencies. I already have the title for the latter:
'Men do not change, they unmask themselves' - Germaine de Stael
I'm planning to visit New York either before or after Mises U for a couple of days... anyone care to join me?
I wish I could have attended this year, but my summer is filled up
I'm hoping to apply for next year's event ... can't wait!
That'll give me a year to read up on all the classics in the field
I think I will be flying in/out of Atlanta - anyone want to carpool? I am at the facebook site, or jaketowne AT gmail will work
I am attending Mises U 09 from 7/26 - 8/4 and would like to share taxi cost to the dorm. Anyone interested?
What's the FEE? Is it in New York?
"If we wish to preserve a free society, it is
essential that we recognize that the desirability of a particular
object is not sufficient justification for the use of coercion."
Is anyone looking to split a taxi ride or something like that back to the Atlanta airport on the morning/afternoon of Sunday August 2nd? I just did my bus scheduling yesterday: I was able to get a bus DOWN to Auburn on the 25th, but it said all the buses back to Atlanta on August 2nd were full.
