Learn Economics in the Comfort of Your Own Home

There is so much to do in the brief time we are given on this earth. I know of more than one student who has come to economics too late in their college career and, while developing a great love for the discipline after a class or two, are too far along semester-wise and don't have time to major in the subject in the time they have left at college.  Very few laboring in the occupation they have chosen after graduation have the opportunity to drop everything for four years and pursue formal training in economics. This is a shame, because economics is an important discipline in which we can glimpse the beauty of God's providence in the created order.

The good news is that it is possible to receive a top-shelf introduction to sound economics from the comfort of your own home. Mises University is taking place this week in Auburn, Alabama. The faculty are the cream of the economic crop and include Joe Salerno, Guido Hulsmann, Jeffrey Herbener, Robert Murphy, Peter Klein, Mark Thornton, Thomas Woods, Roger Garrison, Roderick Long, David Gordon, Walter Block, Thomas DiLorenzo, Timothy Terrell, and Gary North. Attending it are students from scores of colleges and university. If you are not there, do not despair. You can watch every lecture live and in color on the Ludwig von Mises Institute's USTREAM channel by clicking here.
