I’m very pleased to announce that South Africans with an interest in free-markets, liberty, and in particular, Austrian economics, are in for a treat in November.
Peter G. Klein, Executive director and Carl Menger Research Fellow of the Mises Institute, and Associate Professor in the Division of Applied Social Sciences at the University of Missouri, will be visiting South Africa for a week in mid-November.
Professor Klein has speaking engagements at AfriSake, Solidarity, and Wits. The business dinner hosted by AfriSake on Thursday 14 November at Centurion Lake Hotel is open to the public and one can book seats for the event here. Prof Klein will be speaking about the free-market economy and property rights as a solution to SA’s economic challenges. Tickets cost R250 each or R2000 for a table of eight. There is a maximum of 100 seats available for the event.
Still more about Prof Klein: “At Missouri he also directs the McQuinn Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership, and he holds adjunct faculty positions with the Truman School of Public Affairs and the Norwegian School of Economics. His research focuses on the economics of organization, entrepreneurship, and corporate strategy, with applications to diversification, innovation, food and agriculture, economic growth, and vertical coordination. Klein has authored or edited five books and has published over 70 academic articles, chapters, and reviews. See here for his complete vita and here for his website at the University of Missouri.”
