My prolific GMU Econ colleague Pete Boettke will discuss his new book, Living Economics , this Thursday at the Mason Inn (conveniently located on GMU’s Fairfax campus.) Other participants in the discussion of Pete’s book include Tony Carelli, Pete Leeson, Ben Powell, and Alex Tabarrok. Here’s the announcement of this event . I’ll be there.
