Sleep Less. Think More.

One of my favorite institutions is the Institute for Humane Studies (IHS) — a powerhouse of a resource for young scholars doing research with a broadly (classical) liberal orientation.  (Truth in advertising: I serve on the IHS board.)

One of IHS’s most fruitful efforts is its impressive series of free summer seminars.  I encourage all students reading Cafe Hayek to check out this link and to seriously consider applying to attend one of these intellectually stimulating events.

I attended one last year and it was a ton of fun. Great lectures all day and an open bar every night. You really don't sleep at all. I'm doing it again this summer.

Everyone should definately apply for one.

I'll be one of the faculty at the Liberty & Society seminar in Bryn Mawr, PA. I'd love to meet some Cafe Hayek readers there.

I've heard about those – and they do sound like a great time; unfortunately I'll be using my last week of vacation this calendar-year to attend the Mises U in August. Maybe next year…

Attended in 1991. Great event. Had a blast.

So they are the seminars really free?

and are there really open bars?

Yes, they are really free, yes, there are really open bars.

I plan to spend my whole seminar going to free seminars. You should also check out the free seminars at the Acton Institute, the Foundation for Economic Education, and the Mises Institute.

They should make them available as .mp3 or .mp4
