Viennese Introduction

DIRECT LINK TO MP3

This 15. March 2013 show was broadcast from die Freiheit Studio in Vienna, Austria on the Liberty Radio Network and the No Agenda Stream.

I take time to recount my reintroduction into Vienna, as well as last weekend’s amazing European Students For Liberty Conference which took place in Leuven, Belgium.

I wrote about the conference on The Stateless Man website and I’ll be on that program on Monday, 18. March to talk about my experience.

For this program, we also hit on Lindsay Graham’s desire to have forever war, Nigel Farage and growing nativism, Public Relations taking over media, why Marijuana is illegal and tobacco is legal, Walter Williams and ‘liars’ in Congress, and much more.

Liberty In Exile Heads to Europe

In order to fulfill educational pursuits, Liberty In Exile will be moving its operation to Vienna, Austria for the next few months, in the heart of the dysfunctional European Union.

The show will be broadcast from the University of Vienna, the same hallways which have also graced Carl Menger, Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk, Frierich von Wieser, Ludwig von Mises, and Nobel laureate Friedrich Hayek. I shall formulate and finalize my study of both Austrian economics and the business cycle, which have proven and demonstrated the failed repercussions of economic intervention by the state in the recessions and depressions of the last two centuries. The influence of Menger and Hayek shall resonate throughout each classroom and library chair, providing for the immaculate diffusion of higher economic learning.

As a newly-naturalized citizen of the United States of America, I believe it imperative to use the ideas and philosophies first devised at the University of Vienna to solve the economic problems which plague our country today. Increasingly ballooning federal deficits, monetary interventions, and rampant militarism abroad will only serve to prove the worth and genius of the Austrian school in the long run, as long as the American government commits to its current path. Through education, teaching, and exploring, it is my hope that the wisdom formed in the mountainous Austrian landscape will eventually make its way to become the dominant economic policy followed and practiced by the lovers of freedom on the American continent. From the United States to Canada to all of Central Europe, the creed shall be heard.


Stay tuned to Liberty In Exile during this transition of epic proportions, the show shall return in due time!
