The Rothbard Graduate Seminar, our signature event for advanced students in economics and related disciplines, began this morning with a terrific session on economic methodology. The week-long event combines plenary lectures on core Austrian concepts with student-led roundtable discussions that bring out the nuances, applications, challenges, and new directions. The text is selected chapters from Murray Rothbard’s collection Economic Controversies, along with supplemental readings from Rothbard’s Strictly Confidential. The full schedule is here. Graduate students and other scholars doing work in the Austrian tradition, plan to apply for next year’s version!
