Austrian Student Scholars Conference!

This evening begins our eighth annual Austrian Student Scholars Conference hosted by Grove City College! The ASSC is the largest conference in existence devoted to bringing undergraduates and graduate students from colleges and universities across the country to present their own research papers written in the tradition of the great Austrian School intellectuals such as Ludwig von Mises, F.A. Hayek, Murray Rothbard, and Hans Sennholz.
Hans Sennholz (1922-2007)

The conference starts with a banquet for registered participants followed by the Hans Sennholz memorial lecture at 7:00 p.m. in Sticht Auditorium. As always, ASSC keynote lectures are free and open to the public. This year's Sennholz lecture will be delivered by Philipp Bagus, Assistant Professor of Economics at the Universidad Ray Juan Carlos in Spain. Professor Bagus' lecture is entitled "Will Europe Survive?" Timely as today's headlines, as they say.
