Richard Ebeling, one of the most articulate spokesman for the Austrian school of economics -- its history and its teachings, has in cooperation with the Future of Freedom Foundation developed a series of lectures as well as a new eBook to introduce a new generation to this approach to economic science and its application to public policy. I hope both are distributed widely.
When I was an undergraduate student and deciding that I was going to pursue a career as an economist in the Austrian school tradition, Walter Grinder of the Institute for Humane Studies sent me Richard Ebeling's study guide and bibliography for serious students of Austrian economics. I followed Ebeling's reading suggestions. Then while I was in graduate school, Richard used to write a column for the CSMP newsletter that I was the managing editor of entitled -- In the Journals and On the Shelves -- which provided further reading suggestions which I always followed. Richard wasn't my teacher in any technical sense of the word, but he was my "teacher" in a meaningful sense. He has been that teacher both in the concrete and in the abstract for so many economists that have dedicated their lives to advancing the awareness and the teachings of the Austrian school of economics as teachers, scholars, public intellectuals and citizens.
I hope you will take the time to watch these videos and to download his eBook, and to encourage others to do so as well.
