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…]

Arabic Translation of Democracy: The God That Failed and Others

Hoppe, Democracy in ArabicAn Arabic translation of Professor Hoppe’s Democracy: The God That Failed is now available, just published by a publishing house in Kuwait, Takween Publishing, at their press in Lebanon, with an introduction by Nader Kadhum, a professor at Bahrain.

Professor Hoppe’s works are now available in 28 languages in addition to English.

For more on Takween, see Kuwaiti translating English classics into Arabic sees ‘booming’ business.

***

A Short History of Man: Progress and Decline and What Must Be Done have also been published in Arabic: تأريخ قصير للبشر (trans.: Haider Abdul Wahid Rashid).

***

A note was sent to Dr. Hoppe from a friend, describing the publication of the Democracy translation:

Dear Dr. Hoppe:

I’m pleased to inform you that your book has been published in Arabic. I gave a copy of your book to a professor at Bahrain named Nader Kadhum, and then he recommended it to a publishing house in Kuwait, Takween. They decided to publish it. It just came off the press in Lebanon. I believe it will create a stir. Nader wrote the introduction. This now opened a door is, let’s see how well it does in the market, hopefully it sparks more interest. In the Arabic market, when they publish a book, usually they publish 1000 copies. I’ll tell you how well it does when the results are in. I predict it will do very well. Let’s wait and see.

***
The book just got printed.  There is a big book exhibition in Sharjah, next to Dubai.  The opening date is 30th of October, I believe this is the launch date of the book.
The publisher told Nader that many people have called and wanted copies of the book. I’m also waiting to hear about people’s response to the book.  These ideas haven’t been presented in Arabic before.  Many Arabs, especially the more educated ones, believe in democracy.
I found it ironic that the book got published while protesters are on the streets. Today I heard that Hariri resigned. If I was the publisher I would start the marketing in Lebanon.
***
Update after the exhibition:
The book has sold out in the stall during the last day of the exhibition.  The publisher was a surprised at this.  Since their other books are mostly smaller in size and lighter subjects like, literature and some ancient history.  They must have sold 300 books in the Bahrain exhibition.  A good amount for Bahrain and for the type of book.  The next big book exhibition that would spread the book further is Riyadh which takes place in March [2020].
My prediction came true.  The book did very well, and other publishers were curious what was going on next door.  It’s strange for a book that’s theoretical to sell so well.  It’s also strange because the publisher, the intellectuals and the readers are all left leaning.  I think the endorsement by Nader made the difference.  He’s a well respected intellectual in Bahrain.  The attention-grabbing title of the book has also played a role.
So far I haven’t seen any reviews online in Arabic, they must be reading it right now.  They are probably in a state of shock and trying to reassemble their own ideas on political philosophy.
I’m very pleased with the result and hope this is the first big success with more successes to come in the future.
Also–I found another publisher an Iraqi that published A Short History of Man and right after the speech What Must Be Done.
I will update you on any new developments.  I think there will be a big response, and from here interest should spread to other countries.
***
Update

Tomorrow morning, there will be a solar eclipse, and one hour after the eclipse Alayam Cultural Fair (book exhibition) will open and your book Democracy will be released in Bahrain.

The book is eagerly anticipated, because the author that wrote the introduction, Nader Kadhum, is a well known Bahraini writer, historian, and well-respected intellectual. Bahrain is the real launch because of the endorsement of Nader. People are ordering it in the tens, groups already formed to read, discuss and debate it. From here it will spread to the intellectuals, and to the rest of the region, and we’ll get reviews and opinions written about it.

I’ll update you when there are any new developments.

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.
