Current affiliation: PhD student in economics at George Mason University

Comments:

I had the fortune of attending Mises University in the summer of 2010. I am not exaggerating in saying that it was one of the best weeks of my life. I had felt intellectually lonely during most of my undergraduate years, but Mises U allowed me to connect with others interested in Austrian economics and libertarianism (and subsequently connected me with a professor and a group of students at my university who were studying Austrian thought).
