How To Tell Whether Someone Is A Witch

  • December 11, 2012 · 7:30 PM

This week we will again look at the methodological foundations of Austrian Economics - deductive logic and praxeology. Our ability to to discover new facts about the physical world, as well as about ourselves, depends upon our ability to reason in a logical way. We'll cover some of the basics of deduction and then see how Austrian economics uses this reasoning tool to find out how humans act to increase their economic satisfaction.

We will also of course learn how to logically deduce whether someone is a witch. See you Sunday!

If you missed the first week's Meetup, I highly recommend you review Marginal Utility Is Not Rocket Science - Shostak - http://mises.org/daily/2610

 

This week we are trying a google Hangout. Join the hangout below.

    Hi everyone,

    As I mentioned earlier, this week I am going to try something different. Because some people have difficulty making it to White Plains on a weeknight, we're going to try doing a google Hangout. This will allow people from nearby communities to join. You don't need a webcam, but you will need a microphone and speakers on your computer.

    If this doesn't work, we'll go back to meeting at Vintage bar in January.

    Here is the link!

    See you all tomorrow night :)

    Hey Jon, want to give Vintage a call and grab the back room? Reach out to the LPNY, Hudson Valley Chapter, and Westchester "Chapter" to get as many people as you can. Last meeting's turnout was disappointing.

    We are moving this meetup to Dec 11th. Since there are several people who cannot make the commute to White Plains, I am going to try doing an online video meeting. Details to come.
