Introductions

Post by Physiocrat » Mon Mar 12, 2018 1:54 pm

Please introduce yourself.

I'm married with four children and an active member of my local church. I went from standard political conservatism, to Georgism, to minarchy and finally to market anarchy. I studied Economics at A-level and took a standard neo-classical view. Reading Hayek's Denationalisation lead me to seriously consider Economics methodology which lead me to reading Human Action and becoming a full bloodied Misesian Austrian.

Esteemed Host and eventual friends,

Yours truly hails from Eastern Europe (guess), although I’m currently stationed Down Under. Originally a nationalist in political and economic matters alike, I discovered Rothbard in Uni and became an ancap for the longest time. It is only in the last couple years that I have switched back to a libertarian gradualist worldview (with rightist sympathies). And all this just in time to make it to 30.

Let’s hope this venue gets at least partially as popular as the former Mises Forums were, for there’s a lot to revisit in matters of interest to a libertarian.

Cheers,

24 years old from Israel.
Used to be a socialist, after discovering Hayek, which lead me to Mises and then to Rothbard, I became an An-cap.
Currently prefering Mises's Utiliteranism over the natural rights approach, Hoppe might change that though.

It's William from the old Mises forum / libertyhq forum.

For those who don't know me the quick snapshot of my politics and the big guns i take the most away from in economics:

I'm a US boy from the Rustbelt. Ideologically I'm probably just a generic liberal, but to most non-libertarians I will sound pretty libertarian to most ears. I like reading Hayek most of all but also I really enjoy Mises, Lachmann,and Schumpeter as far as the classic Austrian guys are concerned. As of more current authors, I utilize the writings of Nassim Taleb , Elinor and Vincent Ostrom and Thomas Sowell most of all but also the books of Daron Acemoglu and Peter Leeson as well. Russ Roberts econtalk is a podcast i listen to frequently and I read the coordination problem and cafe Hayek blog frequently.

Classic political texts I tend towards and have gotten a lot of mileage from that don't involve Mises, Hayek etc:

Democracy in America by Toqueville
writings by Burke, Hume, and Smith
Federalist Papers
I have come to feel strongly that the greatest service I can still render to my fellow men would be that I could make the speakers and writers among them thoroughly ashamed ever again to employ the term 'social justice'.

Awesome, good to have you here.
I, too, enjoy Nassim Taleb very much. Although I find his treatment of the economic profession somewhat narrow.
