Yeah, there are some total hotties there.

Jake July 28, 2009 at 11:52 am

Red Pill,

Intelligence Analysis Officer July 28, 2009 at 12:22 pm

Please send me a list of the potential insurgents.

distinctive observer July 28, 2009 at 12:36 pm

Why are the no black people here?

S Andrews July 28, 2009 at 12:52 pm

Distinctive Observer,

Your moniker is very inappropriate, because you weren’t observing distinctly when you looked at that picture. You made me look closely, and I would suggest that you do the same.

Curt Howland July 28, 2009 at 1:35 pm

“Ok, everybody, let’s get the better dressed people down front, please! Ok, thank you, that’s much better.” -click-

Tom Woods July 28, 2009 at 2:17 pm

Curt, the secret there is that most of those people are Mises Institute summer fellows, who were about to take their own separate picture and had been asked to dress nicely.

Wes Dillard July 28, 2009 at 4:07 pm

Where’s Waldo/Tom Woods? Oh I see him!

Terri July 28, 2009 at 5:02 pm

Take good care of this group- we need them in the not so distant future!!

Matt July 28, 2009 at 5:33 pm

Love the hottie trifecta in the on the left part of the picture in the front row. Blonde, Brunette, Redhead..and they’re all total knockouts!

Glad to see the university continuing! I hope they all spread their knowledge to their peers back at school.

Bruce Koerber July 28, 2009 at 5:45 pm

Notice the brilliance of their countenances!

They have the gleam of liberty and the fortitude to splay open the ego-driven interventionists.

The hero and heroines represent the surge of 2009.

@ Distinctive Observer, sharp observation.

Why is black American representation here so important for you to have notice? Does this institute denies black attendance, to the best of your knowledge? What am getting at is that your question implies “race” baiting inquires. Which is a big business for people who make a living from these types of observations.

Sure, Mises Institute could be more visible to other groups of people like Hispanics, Native Americans, and Asian Americans. But, I suspect that those groups don’t reap big business like black Americans– for whom disparity, disadvantage, and denial are historic and well documented– perpetuated by hounds and not lionhearted citizens of black America.

Hans July 28, 2009 at 9:02 pm

I am currently attending Mises University. there are 3 black people here as well. You’re all stupid. Thank you.

Joseph Mises July 28, 2009 at 9:47 pm

Stop commenting this photo and go read books. I second Hans wise commentary.

Conza88 July 28, 2009 at 10:50 pm

That is some smart looking people right there..

The future looks bright that’s for sure.

Cody July 29, 2009 at 12:32 am

Christ. How tall are Rockwell and Thornton?

@Distinctive Observer

Why are the no black people here?

Well I asked the same question with the various professors of Mises institute and this is what they answered:

Walter Block: “Well since the black guys are paid less than white guys, and it happened despite of them having the same productivity as the white guys, they were immediately hired by the Mises institute the moment they arrived here for MisesU because there was a profit opportunity over them.”

Stephen Kinsella: “There were many black students who came to attend MisesU, but Obama sued them on violating his Intellectual Property rights of being called as ‘black’, they had to leave to attend their trials.”

Hans-Hermann Hoppe: “Since the election of Obama, there is a general belief among the black students that they don’t need to acquire real knowledge about human action, what they need to learn is to how to give promises of hope and change, and how to have a charismatic personality. This is the folly of democracy, that all the black students went to attend Change-Hope University 2009″

Thomas E Woods: “The Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 is responsible for this, the housing prices have fallen, and Obama has created a lot of easy credit with the near zero interest rates, because of this the African-Americans in this nation are being offerred loans to buy houses at very cheap interest rates. Most of the black students who were going to attend MisesU are right now signing the mortgage terms with their bankers.”

Peter Schiff: “The Black students are on their way to come to Mises University [Distincitive Observer laughs] And they are coming right NOW.”[3 black students walk into the room]

Jeffery Tucker: “Peter Schiff was right, you can see his prediction come true here, here, and here. The photographic evidence is here, here and here

Borislav July 29, 2009 at 4:32 am

I see two black men in photo.

Thornton is really tall!

Nielsio July 29, 2009 at 12:59 pm

What do the names on the floor mean?

Sovereign Starr July 29, 2009 at 7:45 pm

Whilst comparing this photo with the one from Mises U 2008, it occurred to me that the black student population has doubled in that very short period of time. I consider that a success, especially since they don’t have an affirmative action policy.

Love,
One of the Mises U. Hotties

Lord Buzungulus, Bringer of the Purple Light July 29, 2009 at 9:32 pm

The chick in front in white is a smoking hot cutie.

Matt_2 July 30, 2009 at 2:06 am

Oaky I’m gonna ask this, if there are three blacks, how can the population doubled. Was there a black midget attending Mises U?
And why are they in the Back!!!!

S. Andrews that is completely false accusation that you made. Distinctive Observer is distinctive observations show he is a troll.

Sovereign Starr July 30, 2009 at 10:03 am

Well, there are only two in the picture. I never claimed there were three. Two, the number of black students in the picture from this year, is twice one, the number in last year’s picture. Just a little basic math for you.

Arend July 31, 2009 at 10:51 am

@ Nielsio: I’m not sure but I would suspect it are names of people who put money into the LvMI.

PS: Walter Block still looks smokingly hot!

Ben August 3, 2009 at 10:33 am

@ distinctive observer

I you had actually attended the Mises University course (as I did) and had the good fortune and pleasure to speak with Jake and Patrick (the two black guys in the photo), then you would realize that we were all far too busy talking about issues in economics, philosophy, politics, mathematics, science, music, movies, love, life, and so on, to waste valuable time race baiting each other.

I recall having a very interesting discussion with Patrick about the difficulties of using statistical inference techniques to undertake causal analysis in the social sciences. Believe it or not neither of us were traumatized by the “over-representation” or “under-representation” of various racial groups. during our discussion.

As for why there were only two black guys there? I couldn’t care less.

Aaron B August 3, 2009 at 6:25 pm

I cant believe the discussion has devolved into a race issue, I believe that says something about the anonymous nature of the internet. As an attendee I can assure there was much diversity of culture, race and opinion at Mises U 2009, any suggestion otherwise is laughable.

Good luck to this year’s group of grads. I am deeply satisfied to know that you are able to attend such an important seminar as Mises U. I am even more pleased to think of the potential impact they may have on society. Personally, I grew up with an inquiring mind, but was not exposed to Austrian/libertarian ideas until after completing grad school.

Does anyone know the age/academic demographic? A wild guess: 20% HS students, mostly soon-to-be juniors and seniors; 40% college undergrads; 20% grad students; 20% college profs.

The key questions remain unanswered: How tall are Mark Thronton and Lew Rockwell?
