What is the Australian Mises Seminar?
The Australian Mises Seminar is an annual event that brings together respected economists, political philosophers and supporters from Australia and around the world for a weekend of fun and lively discussion.
The Mises Seminar is named in honour of Ludwig von Mises, perhaps the most gifted economist and philosopher of the 20th century. Mises was a prolific author who spawned a global movement dedicated to carrying on his tradition. One of his students, F.A. Hayek, went on to receive the Nobel Prize in Economics. Another of his students, Murray Rothbard, extended Mises’ ideas and founded what is now the modern libertarian movement. A living proponent of Mises’ ideas is Congressman Ron Paul who ran for the office of President of the United States sparking an international, and intellectual revolution.
The first Australian Mises seminar was held in November 2011 featuring Professor Hans-Hermann Hoppe as the special international guest speaker. The second commenced in December 2012 featuring the prodigious Dr. Walter Block. Both successful seminars were made possible due to the kind support of an Australian liberty legend: Neville J. Kennard (1937 - 2012).
The spirit of the seminar is best encapsulated by Mises' lifelong motto taken from Virgil's Aeneid: "Tu ne cede malis, sed contra audentior ito" — 'Do not give in to evil, but proceed ever more boldly against it'.
We look forward to you joining the rest of the remnant at our next, not to be missed event. To stay up to date regarding developments for this years seminar join Liberty Australia's mailing list.
