My Path to the Austrian School of Economics

Speech delivered in German on 23 November 2019 at the Palais Coburg in Vienna, Austria, at an event commemorating the 70th anniversary of the publication of Mises’s Human Action. English translation by Robert Grözinger

My Path to the Austrian School of Economics

[This talk was delivered 23 November at the Palais Coburg in Vienna, Austria, at an event commemorating the 70th anniversary of the publication of Mises’s Human Action.]

Nowadays, it’s not uncommon for people as young as 20 or 30 to feel they have to share their memories with the world. Even at an advanced age, I prefer not to talk publicly about personal things and experiences in my life, but to reserve this for private conversations.

Preface to Against the Left: A Rothbardian Libertarianism, by Llewellyn H Rockwell Jr. (Rockwell Communications LLC, 2019).

PREFACE

by Hans-Hermann Hoppe

Every person, including identical twins, is unique, different from and unequal to all other persons. Everyone is born at a different time and/or place. Everyone has two different, older and unequal biological parents, a male father and a female mother. Every person, throughout its entire life, faces and must act in a different and unequal environment with different and unequal opportunities and challenges, and every person’s life, its accomplishments and its failings, its joys and satisfactions as much as its disappointments, sorrows and sufferings, then, is different from and unequal to that of everyone else. Moreover, this natural inequality of any and all human beings is still greatly amplified with the establishment of any and every society based on the division of labor. [continue reading…]

Talk in Hangar-7 – Brexit instead of Brussels: Is the Future of the Nation Belonging?

On October 31, the Brexit is to be completed. Now there is a deal between the EU and the UK. What consequences would Brexit have for Austria? And how justified is the yearning for the nation state?

For the past three years, negotiations have been on Britain’s exit from the EU. Now there is another deal, but does the British Parliament agree? Or it threatens but the hard Brexit, both sides do not want and should not be possible according to British law. What could an agreement look like? Will Brexit continue to strengthen nationalist forces across Europe? And why is the EU increasingly losing its appeal?

It is not just since the British exit referendum in June 2016 that many European citizens are yearning for a strong and sovereign nation state. What is behind this wish? Why is the EU evidently moving away from its citizens? What makes Europe today and does the EU really bring us more advantages than disadvantages?

Guests:
Karoline Edtstadler, ÖVP delegation leader in Brussels
Leigh Turner, British ambassador to Austria
Hans-Hermann Hoppe, economist and anarcho-capitalist
Aleksandra Rybinska, Polish publicist
Stefan Junker, psychologist and author

Moderation: Michael Fleischhacker

Talk im Hangar-7 – Brexit statt Brüssel: Gehört die Zukunft der Nation?

{ 0 comments }

On the 6th of October 2019 some 1500 Russians came to listen to Libertarian thinker Hans-Hermann Hoppe in Moscow. It was the biggest libertarian event in the history of Russia and the biggest libertarian lecture in Europe. Foreword and afterword by Mikhail Svetov.

The event was “Hans Hermann Hoppe: So To Speak”, and the title of Professor Hoppe’s speech was: “Historical Patterns and Tendencies in Austro-Libertarian Perspective” — in which he tells three related stories or narratives that explain the present world.
 
First: regarding the origin of states and the changes of state constitutions over time: a historical reconstruction.
 
Second: regarding the concentration of states, issues of war and imperialism.
 
Third: regarding money and banking and monetary centralization.

Portuguese translation of A Short History of Man

Uma Breve História do Homem: Progresso e Declínio, a Brazilian Português translation of  A Short History of Man: Progress and Decline (Mises 2015), is now available on Amazon Brazil.

According to Matheus Vieira, who alerted me to this, the first run (about 5 thousand copies) sold out already in about 9 months and is already on the second run—very impressive given the subject matter and type of book. Vieira also informs me that the publisher is working on a translation of The Economics and Ethics of Private Property.
