Guest blog from Alex Gill:
I am pleased to announce the founding of the Austrian Economics Forum at North Carolina State University. The Forum is designed to supplement the graduate economics curriculum with a rigorous study of Austrian ideas and thinkers, but meetings are open to all students (whether undergraduate or graduate) and faculty in the area. Inspired by the successful seminars at NYU, George Mason, and Loyola New Orleans, our hope is to be both an educational resource and a source of new scholarship. The faculty advisor is Roy Cordato.
At bi-weekly meetings, participants will discuss readings, hear presentations, and present papers. The Forum hopes to eventually host speakers from around the country on a variety of topics and provide students with complimentary copies of reading materials. Our first session was attended by several graduate and undergraduate students, Drs. Roy Cordato and Steve Margolis from NC State, and Paul Cwik from Mount Olive College.
The inaugural meeting was held last week, when we discussed the first two chapters of The Foundations of Modern Austrian Economics. If you would like to participate or would like more information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the announcement list (the website is currently under construction).
