On Monday August 2nd, the Foundation for Economic Education will host again the summer seminar in Austrian economics. These seminars owe their origins to the academic entrepreneurship of Israel M. Kirzner, and have been located through the years in Boulder, Co., Milwaukee, Wisc., Irvington, NY, New York City, and for more than the past decade back in Irvington at the FEE campus.
This year speakers will include Israel Kirzner, Mario Rizzo, Roger Garrison, Peter Lewin, Bill Butos, Bruce Caldwell, Larry White, Steve Horwitz, Pete Leeson, Chris Coyne, and myself.
I hope Steve will live blog from the seminar as he often has in the past. I am thrilled again to get the chance to see Professor Israel Kirzner and get a chance to talk economics with him.*
*Fred Sautet and I are almost complete with our editing of The Collected Works of Israel M. Kirzner, we are just putting the finishing touches on our introduction for Discovery, Capitalism, and Distributive Justice. I think this is perhaps Kirzner's most underappreciated work, and I hope this edition will bring new attention to this work and its importance in Kirzner's body of work.
