How Can I Have a Career in Austrian Economics?
I get a very substantial number of inquiries like this:
I never quite know what to say. In general I think it’s a mistake to try to make a career our of being a libertarian. Ah, but Woods, isn’t that what you do? Sort of, yes, but that was never my intention. My own circumstances are extremely unusual and not easy to replicate. If you’re really interested in Austrian economics, then go ahead and become an economist. If you are interested in libertarianism, maybe a better thing to do is make some contribution to society and pursue your libertarian passion as your calling.
I strongly recommend watching this video. It’s too long, you say. Watch it over lunch. You will enjoy it, and you’ll learn something from it.
