Mises Book Club

In February 2024, the Mises Institute will hold its next Mises Book Club, our new program to promote deep reading in Austrian economics. 

In celebration of the 80th anniversary of F. A. Hayek's Road to Serfdom, this classic work in political philosophy, intellectual and cultural history, and economics will be the focus of the next meeting. 

For eight riveting weeks, ten to fifteen specially selected undergraduate students will partake in rich discussions led by a Mises faculty member with expertise on the book. The club will meet virtually every Tuesday evening from 5-6 p.m. central time, and students will receive complimentary hard copies of the book. Students will come away with a stronger understanding of individual freedom and the threat of totalitarianism. 

Please apply for a position in the Mises Book Club by Friday, January 5. Decisions will be communicated to all applicants by Friday, January 12. The first meeting will be on Tuesday, February 6. 

Important Note: all applicants agree to abide by the Mises Institute's Visiting Scholars Manual.
