Meet. Learn. Teach. Share. Laugh. Welcome to the premier group for Austrian econ and Ludwig von Mises enthusiasts in Orange County! Every month we'll get together for a few hours (minimum) to discuss the works of Mises and other Austrian heavyweights, interpret current events, critique essays and hitpieces by other philosophical schools, review the latest issue of the QJAE, watch and chat about recorded debates and generally just enjoy being around other people passionate about sound economic theory. This group is open to pros, noobs, academics, students, housewives (and husbands), businessmen (and women), the ignorant and the intellectual, the hardcore and the merely curious, black people, white people, pizza lovers and pizza haters, the gluten intolerant and the gluttonous and everyone in between. We're not polylogists-- everyone has a valuable rational contribution to make and take. Gatherings will generally include consumption of beer/wine/cocktails and/or coffee. The wait is over. You're NOT as crazy as you think you are and you DON'T have to feel so lonely about it. Come share life with like-minds! (And when the fun is all over each month, you can continue the revelry online with our blog/forum, 24/7, until the next one.)
