I Knew I Liked This Guy


Tags Austrian Economics Overview

At the Austrian Scholars Conference this weekend we had the good fortune of hearing from Gerard Casey of University College, Dublin, speaking on the long tradition of statelessness in Ireland. A bunch of us wondered how someone so knowledgeable within the Rothbardian tradition could have completely escaped our notice until now.

It turns out, moreover, that Professor Casey is also sound on what we shall immodestly call the Woods question, having vigorously defended the thesis I later developed in The Church and the Market.

Tom Woods, a senior fellow of the Mises Institute, is the author of a dozen books, most recently Real Dissent: A Libertarian Sets Fire to the Index Card of Allowable Opinion. Tom's articles have appeared in dozens of popular and scholarly periodicals, and his books have been translated into a dozen languages. Tom hosts the Tom Woods Show, a libertarian podcast that releases a new episode every weekday. With Bob Murphy, he co-hosts Contra Krugman, a weekly podcast that refutes Paul Krugman's New York Times column.
