The Green Anchor has been meeting every week on the south side of Minneapolis, Minnesota since 2007 to discuss and learn more about economic freedom. The title of our group, The Green Anchor, was the name of the restaurant in Vienna where Ludwig von Mises gathered with his friends to discuss economics well into the late evening. If you are not familiar with Austrian Economics or Ludwig von Mises, you can get a quick overview here ( and here ( Please also check out the Ludwig von Mises Institute (, which continues to carry on scholarship in the tradition of the Austrian School.

While we generally choose a weekly topic relating to the freed market, we also discuss practical issues revolving around individual and small group "economizing" in an increasingly uncertain world.

Our meetups are open to anyone interested in learning more about liberty, free markets, sound money and peace. Please join us.
