35th Anniversary Gala in New York City
October 6, 2017 – October 7, 2017New York CIty
Imagine getting a star to be the intellectual heart of your tiny, new organization. And Murray Rothbard was much more than a star. He was one of the extraordinary men of the 20th century. A world-class genius in economics, history, and philosophy; an expert in sports and politics, strategy and tactics; a delightful movie reviewer and very funny guy, he created modern libertarianism and took Austrian economics to new heights. The power of his writing and the clarity of his thought continue to attract people from all over the world, every day, much to the upset of the Left.
Of course, in an age of Keynesianism and other evils, he was traduced and marginalized. He still is. The enemy understand his power. But it didn't work. His achievement, his optimism, his spirit triumphed. Even SJW oligarchs couldn't stop him.
The bad guys were able to make sure that, like Mises, he never had much money, nor an academic position remotely worthy of him. But the Marxists couldn't silence him. Murray lives today through his 26 books and thousands of articles, through his example, and through the Mises Institute. So we thought it only right to dedicate our 35th anniversary to Murray.
Our magnificent list of speakers include: Hans-Hermann Hoppe, Ron Paul, Judge Napolitano, Guido Hülsmann, Paul Gottfried, and Tom Woods. Also Joe Salerno, David Gordon, Bob Murphy, Peter Klein, Walter Block, Doug French, Tom DiLorenzo, Mark Thornton, Jeff Herbener, Yuri Maltsev, Lew Rockwell, Jeff Deist, and many others. (A complete list of speakers and contact info is here.)
There will be a hilarious bus tour of Murray's (and Mises's) Manhattan, with insider info from guides Walter Block, David Gordon, Hans Hoppe, Guido Hülsmann, and Joe Salerno; a Friday reception, Saturday lunch, pre-dinner reception, gala dinner, and Rothbard Night Owl Nightclub afterwards.
We'll also be unveiling a brand-new and magnificent Rothbard book on the Progressives, from his archives. Talk about timely!
Please join us in the city of Rothbard, as we learn, have fun, and are inspired by Murray's spirit for the fight ahead.
