Fuller on the Tom Woods Show

My friend and colleague, Caleb Fuller, recently appeared on the Tom Woods Show discussing his new book No Free Lunch. While I have not investigated the matter exhaustively I venture to guess that the Grove City College Economics program is the only one in country that has achieved 100 percent representation on the Tom Woods Show! Listen, learn, and buy the book:

Loury on the Persistence of Racial Inequality in America

 Glenn Loury, the distinguished economist at Brown University and host of  The Glenn Show, recently presented provocatively stark words about the persistence of racial inequality in America. After his remarks, presented to an academic group at Baylor University, he participates in a Q & A facilitated by my friend and Chair of the Baylor's Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Peter G. Klein.

Gordon on Fuller's No Free Lunch

David Gordon reviews No Free Lunch, the new book by my colleague Caleb Fuller. In his assessment, he praises Fuller noting that, in his analysis of economic falacies, he "follows Frédéric Bastiat and Henry Hazlitt, and he is a worthy successor of them." Gordon says the work itself is "an ideal book for introductory economics classes and for anyone who wants to understand how the free market works." High praise.

Mises at Harvard

 In 1940, soon after Mises arrived in the United States, he was invited by the Economics Department at Harvard University to give a lecture to their graduate students. E. H. Chamberlin wrote the letter inviting him to speak. 

Dear Dr. von Mises:

            The Department of Economics at Harvard would like to offer their graduate students the privilege of meeting you and hearing you while you are in this country. Would it be possible for you to speak at Harvard on the evening of either December 5 or December 12? If so, I should be glad to receive from you suggestions as to possible subjects. We should hope, too, that you would be able to remain in Cambridge for a day or so in order to give students and others a chance to talk with you informally. An honorarium of $100 will be paid (from which you would be expected to meet your own travelling expenses).

            I very much hope you will be able to accept this invitation.

Sincerely yours,


E. H. Chamberlin
