Subject: Summer 2003

Students, it's time to make plans to attend
conferences and seminars at
the
Mises Institute. You might consider a three-month
fellowship in our
offices, with feature the finest scholarly resources
on classical
liberalism, libertarianism, and the Austrian School
available anywhere
in
the world.
Unlike other internships, which often turn out to be
excuses for an
institution to employ cheap labor, the Mises
Institute permits and
expects
its fellows to pursue serious intellectual work.
Instead of being
shuffled
away in the mail room or otherwise forced to hobnob
with politicians,
you
will develop an expertise in a field that would not
otherwise be
cultivated
in a classroom setting, read deeply literature
otherwise unavailable,
and
take advantage of a window of opportunity for serious
investigation and
reflection. During the typical academic career, such
opportunities are
extremely rare.

You will also benefit from the guidance of resident
faculty and become
part
of a community of scholars, and enrich that community
through your own
contributions. The Mises Institute Campus includes a
vast library based
on
the private collection of Murray Rothbard among other
important scholars

and donor institutions, archives of the papers of
great Austrian
economists
and libertarian thinkers, the most advanced
technology, offices for
students and faculty, an outdoor amphitheater, and
many other resources.

For anyone working in the fields of Austrian
economics and libertarian
political theory, this combination of intellectual
stimulation and
social
opportunity combine to create the perfect environment
for productive
academic work.

    Rothbard Graduate Seminar 2003
    June 2-7, 2003
    Mises Institute


Before the 20th century, economic science was seen as
an integrated
whole
that lent itself particular well to treatise-length
expositions. Every
important economist aspired to write one that built
the science, block
by
block, from first principles to every conceivable
application.

But since World War II, and the triumph of
Keynesianism and positivism,
only two treatises that have stood out: Mises's Human
Action (1949) and
Murray Rothbard's Man, Economy, and State
(1962)--both masterworks of
the
Austrian tradition.

Rothbard's treatise began as a textbook to teach
Misesian theory but
quickly took on the character of a grand intellectual
project. More than

any other book in the generation after Mises, it has
shape the Austrian
understanding of theory and policy. It was this
treatise that formed the

bridge between the interwar Austrians and the present
generation.

This seminar, designed for graduate students from a
variety of
disciplines,
is devoted to examining Rothbard treatise in
particular. The Mises
Institute's Scholar's Edition (2003) integrates the
original treatise
with
the part that was cut and later appeared at Power and
Market. The new
edition includes a introductory material from the
archives. All accepted

students will receive complementary copies of the
reading material.

Led by a remarkable faculty, a select number of
students will
participate
in a week of seminars that will take us from the
first page to the last.

Rarely does an opportunity such as this appear in the
life of a student.

The program ends with a Mündliche Prüfung, an
optional exam for an
honors
certificate.All events will take place at the Mises
Institute, along
with
specially meals served at the Institute and evening
receptions. All
students will have week-long access to the library
and computers.

To apply go to the Student Scholarship Application.
The conference
application requires two academic letters of
recommendation, a sample
research paper, informal transcripts, and a copy of
your student ID.
Accepted students received full tuition, a
double-occupancy dorm room,
transporation between Atlanta, Georgia, and Auburn,
Alabama, as well as
discounts on books purchased at the Institute.

Students who complete applications received by
February 1, 2003, will be

notified by February 3. Those who apply by March 1
will be notified by
March 3, while those who apply by April 1 will be
notified by April 3.
Applications after April 15 will not be considered.

    History Seminar with Robert Higgs
    June 23-27, 2003
    Mises Institute

Crisis and Liberty: The Expansion of Government Power
in American
History

A Seminar with Robert Higgs

Robert Higgs, editor of The Independent Review, is
the author of the
book
Crisis and Leviathan, a survey of the episodic growth
of the federal
government in periods of war and economic crisis. His
"ratchet" theory
of
the expansion of power provides a model for
understanding the current
policy environment in which the government is using
war and the threat
of
terrorism to justify its assaults on the personal and
economic liberties
of
Americans.

During his stay at the Mises Institute, Professor
Higgs will present a
series of ten formal lectures on topics of American
history that examine

the role of crisis, emergency management, and the
military in the
emergence
of the Leviathan state and diminution of liberty. He
will also be
available
in informal sessions at the Mises Institute, with its
24,000 book
library
and spectacular research facilities.

There is no charge for attending the one-week lecture
series, and no
formal
application requirements beyond the minimum. Lectures
are at 10:00am and

2:00pm, Monday through Friday. Lunch will be served.
Some partial
scholarships for students are available. Space is
limited so you will
need
to be admitted to attend. RSVP with pat@mises.org.

AUSTRIAN ECONOMICS

Rooted in the tradition of Carl Menger and Ludwig von
Mises, as well as
Murray Rothbard and F.A. Hayek, the Austrian School
offers a rigorous
and
logical approach to economics that gives free markets
their due and
takes
full account of the reality of human choice.

More than a field within economics, the Austrian
School is an entirely
different approach that dissents from the mainstream
on method, theory,
and
policy. It views economic actors as unique,
conscious, and freely
choosing
individuals, not as undifferentiated data to be
manipulated
mathematically
or politically.

THE PROGRAM
The Mises University is the world's leading
instructional program in the

Austrian School of economics. Since 1984, it has been
the essential
training ground for economists who are looking beyond
the mainstream.

The program offers courses, seminars, and reading
groups on the whole
range
of the discipline. A core curriculum presents
economic foundations, and
more than fifty elective classes explore the entire
range of economics,
in
all levels of advancement. The program ends with a
Mündliche Prüfung, an

optional exam for an honors certificate.

Subject areas cover market behavior, competition,
value and utility,
money
and banking, business cycles, industrial
organization, method, economic
history, the philosophy of science, financial
economics, and more. You
attend what most suits your interests and level of
advancement.

Classes are interspersed with reading groups,
discussion seminars,
faculty
panels, and plenary lectures. There are special
sessions on economic
history, economics and ethics, and political
philosophy. Nightly social
hours allow time to meet and discuss it all with
faculty and other
students. There's even a primer on surviving graduate
school.

All students must be familiar with the Required
Readings prior to
attending.
