For those (presumably relatively few) of you who don’t yet know, Marginal Revolution University is opening its e-doors [1]!  (Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby surely isn’t surprised [2].)

Two vigorous and courageous voices for liberty have recently died: Ron Hamowy and Thomas Szasz.  Here are some remembrances: Bryan Caplan on Ron Hamowy [3] - and Bryan here on Thomas Szasz [4].  Walter Olson on Hamowy [5].  The New York Times [6] on Szasz [6].

One of the countless great contributions that Sheldon Richman made as editor of The Freeman was to persuade Thomas Szasz to write a regular column for that magazine [7].

And here’s my GMU Econ colleague Dan Klein’s 1993 Southern Economic Journal review [8] of Thomas Szasz’s 1992 book, Our Right to Drugs: The Case for a Free Market [9].

This month’s Cato Unbound features a lead essay by Steve Horwitz [10] on the role of empirical evidence in Austrian economics.  Bryan Caplan [11] and George Selgin [12] each have replies, with Antony Davies [13] to contribute his own reply later today.

From William McBride and Kurt Schuler comes praise of competitive note issue [14] - and from Richard Rahn a further justified warning about the dangers of central banks [15].
