"Ideas are the only things that count, and politicians are, for the most part, pretty much irrelevant."
— Dr. Ron Paul
It is in this spirit we present you with the opportunity to attend the 2nd annual Australian Mises Seminar, an event to be held in Sydney on December 1-2, 2012. Building upon last years successful event, we have managed to bring together some of best free-market economists and libertarian philosophers from around the world for a weekend of fun and lively discussion. This years special international guest speaker is the prodigious Dr. Walter Block.

The Mises Seminar is named in honour of Ludwig von Mises, perhaps the most gifted economist and philosopher of the 20th century. Mises was a prolific author who spawned a global movement dedicated to carrying on his tradition. One of his students, F.A. Hayek, went on to receive the Nobel Prize in Economics. Another of his students, Murray Rothbard, extended Mises’ ideas and founded what is now the modern libertarian movement. A living proponent of Mises’ ideas is Congressman Ron Paul who ran for the office of President of the United States sparking an international, and intellectual revolution.
The freedom movement in Australia is young and expanding. However, government’s growth has continued rapidly despite the efforts of our free-market think-tanks. For this reason it is important to reaffirm our principles with an added intellectual rigour. As the only event of its type overtly promoting the ideas of Austrian Economics and Libertarianism, the seminar provides a fantastic opportunity for attendees to connect with other like-minded individuals aware of freedoms virtues.
The spirit of the seminar is best encapsulated by Mises' lifelong motto taken from Virgil's Aeneid: "Tu ne cede malis, sed contra audentior ito" — 'Do not give in to evil, but proceed ever more boldly against it'. We look forward to you joining the rest of the remnant at this not to be missed event.
