Boettke Profiled in WSJ

Sheldon Richman

Peter Boettke, professor of economics at George Mason University, FEE trustee, and a great champion of Austrian economics, was profiled in the Wall Street Journal this past weekend (subscription site). A sample:

[T]he 50-year-old professor of economics at George Mason University in Virginia is emerging as the intellectual standard-bearer for the Austrian school of economics that opposes government intervention in markets and decries federal spending to prop up demand during times of crisis. Mr. Boettke, whose latest research explores people’s ability to self-regulate, also is minting a new generation of disciples who are spreading the Austrian approach throughout academia, where it had long been left for dead….

In the last decade at George Mason, he has helped recruit the Austrian school’s leading scholars and drawn students from around the world. Roughly 75% of his students have gone on to teach economics at the college or graduate level.

FEE also got a plug in the article: “The Austrian think tank Foundation for Economic Education had to turn students away this summer from its overflowing seminars.”

Congratulations, Professor Boettke!
