In this ten-lecture seminar sponsored by Steven Berger, the roots and reach of both Libertarian and Austrian theory are covered by a leading authority: Professor Walter Block of Loyola University, New Orleans. The economic theory is value free, deriving from relentless deductions from first axioms, but it takes flight when combined with a theory of natural rights in the Thomist-Rothbardian tradition. Professor Block is qualified to present the full package as you have never heard it; he is perhaps the most well-published of any author writing within the Austro-libertarian tradition. Recorded at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, Auburn, Alabama; 25-29 July 2005.
Walter Block, an Austrian school economist and anarcho-libertarian philosopher, is Harold E. Wirth Eminent Scholar Chair in Economics and professor of economics at Loyola University New Orleans and senior fellow with the Ludwig von Mises Institute. He is the author of the books Defending the Undefendable, Labor Economics From A Free Market Perspective, Economics and the Environment: A Reconciliation, and his latest, The Privatization of Roads and Highways.
