The Austrian Paradigm in Environmental Economics

Writes Ed Dolan, the 2014 F.A. Hayek Memorial Lecturer at the Austrian Economics Research Conference:

Today on my blog I posted the second in a two-part series on Austrian environmental economics and emissions trading, based in part on the Hayek lecture I gave at the Mises Institute conference in Auburn last month. I thought that some of the readers of your blogs might be interested in it. I am sure you and your readers will find parts of it controversial, and I would very much like to get a discussion going. Here are the links: Part 1  and Part 2

Punching Above Our Weight

6706Jeff Deist writes in today’s Mises Daily:

Last week the Mises Institute hosted another outstanding Austrian Economics Research Conference at our campus in Auburn. Attendees enjoyed three days of cross-disciplinary presentations by more than 50 academics, PhD candidates, and economics/finance professionals, all working in the most provocative traditions of Austrian and libertarian thought. We also celebrated the 40th anniversary of the South Royalton conference, the first academic conference devoted to Austrian economics in the US and a watershed event in the modern Austrian movement.

Watch James Grant’s speech and you’ll catch his reference to boxer Jake LaMotta. LaMotta was a notoriously big middleweight, often fighting men 10 pounds lighter. The Mises Institute, by contrast, punches above its weight. A recent Forbes article demonstrates that we are a real heavyweight online. Among free-market think tanks, we rank first in YouTube channel subscribers, second in overall website visitors, and third in social media presence.

We do this with a budget that is a tiny fraction of the big organizations in DC, organizations that spend their days promoting superficial changes in public policy. We do it without billionaires funding us, without currying favor with the political class, without receiving government money, and without wasting time looking for liberty in all the wrong places.

Call for Papers: Austrian Economics Research Conference

CRW_0211Austrian Economics Research Conference 

March 20-22, 2014
Mises Institute
Auburn, AL USA

The Austrian Economics Research Conference is the international, interdisciplinary meeting of the Austrian School, bringing together leading scholars doing research in this vibrant and influential intellectual tradition. The conference is hosted by the Mises Institute at its campus in Auburn, Alabama.

2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences to F. A. Hayek and Gunnar Myrdal. It is also the 40th anniversary of The Austrian Economics Conference at South Royalton, Vermont. These two events are widely believed to have marked the revival of modern Austrian economics. We will celebrate both events with papers and panels at AERC 2014. Most of the participants at South Royalton went on to academic careers, and a number of them will participate in this conference.

Proposals for individual papers, complete paper sessions or symposia, and interactive workshops are encouraged. Papers should be well developed, but at a stage where they can still benefit from the group’s discussion. Preference will be given to recent papers that have not been presented at major conferences. All topics related to Austrian economics, broadly conceived, and related social-science and business disciplines such as management, entrepreneurship, and finance are appropriate for the conference. Proposals from junior faculty and PhD students are especially encouraged.

This year’s conference features a keynote lecture from Ed Dolan, organizer of the South Royalton conference and editor of The Foundations of Modern Austrian Economics (1976). Other keynote speakers include J. Huston McCulloch, Hans-Hermann Hoppe, and Andrew P. Napolitano.

The conference is directed by Joseph Salerno, Professor of Economics at Pace University and Academic Vice President of the Mises Institute.  All proposals are peer reviewed by a program committee.  To submit a proposal, send your information to papers@mises.org. Proposals are due by December 31, 2013, and decisions will be communicated by January 31, 2014.

The registration fee is $285 for academics, $395 for practitioners. Registration covers all sessions, three buffet dinners, coffee breaks, and daily shuttles between AU Hotel and the Institute.  To register go here or call 800-636-4737 or 334-321-2100.

For qualified full-time students, the registration fee to attend all sessions and dinners is waived (complete the application form at the AERC page).

Hotel rooms at Auburn University Hotel are available. Phone 1-800-228-2876 or 334-821-8200 before February 28. Be sure to mention Austrian Economics Research Conference of the Mises Institute for the special rate of $115 plus tax (for single or double room).

All proposals are peer reviewed by a conference acceptance committee. To submit a proposal, send your information to the director at papers@mises.org. Abstracts should be limited to 250 words.

Austrian Economics Research Conference

The deadline for submitting proposals is 12/31

The Austrian Economics Research Conference is the international, interdisciplinary meeting of the Austrian School, bringing together leading scholars doing research in this vibrant and influential intellectual tradition. The conference is hosted by the Mises Institute at its campus in Auburn, Alabama.

We have a number of exciting speakers and panels scheduled for the Austrian Economics Research Conference 2014. If you have never been, I encourage you to attend the AERC this year. Papers and books that advance the Austrian School are presented here for the first time, which gives you the chance to discuss ideas with presenters and participants and make an important contribution to impacting the future of the School. If you are looking for comments on a paper, or just a chance to bounce some ideas off others who know something other than the latest mathematical wizardry of the profession, this is the place.

This is also the ideal setting for making professional contacts that will help you through the years. Your expertise and interests are highly valued by others. In addition, we always have a great time. There is no substitute for the intellectual stimulation and personal camaraderie that the Austrian Economics Research Conference combines into one event.
