Austrian Economics and Objectivism: Panel Session and Summit Closing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Prominent Objectivists have argued that Austrian Economics is compatible with Objectivism. Ludwig von Mises was Ayn Rand's favorite economic thinker, and Objectivist economist George Reisman was trained by Mises. Despite this, Rand was very critical of a number of Austrians including F.A. Hayek and Murray Rothbard. David Kelley has written that "Hayek seems to think that if socialist planning were possible, socialism might be the morally ideal system." What are the philosophical foundations of Austrian Economics? Is Austrian Economics good economics? Dale Halling and William R Thomas will explore these questions in this panel session

Please note that lunch is not included in this noon session.
