FEE Alum Receives a Prestigious Award

OCTOBER 19, 2012 by TSVETELIN M. TSONEVSKI

The Society for the Development of Austrian Economics announced today that Colin Harris, a FEE alum, is one of the three winners of the 2012 Carl Menger Essay Contest. Colin’s research paper ”Piracy as a Common Pool Resource: A Case Study of Online Pirate Communities Avoiding Tragedy,” was selected by a panel of three other FEE alumni, Jeremy Hoperdahl, Emily Skarbek and Daniel Smith. The  contest is intended to encourage undergraduate scholarship in the Austrian tradition. As part of the award, Harris will attend and present at the Southern Economic Association annual meeting in New Orleans, November 16-18.

Harris, a senior at Florida State University, attended the 2012 Austrian economics seminar in Irvington, NY where he had the opportunity to listen to lectures from Israel Kirzner, Peter Boettke, Steven Horwitz, Lawrence White, Roger Garrison, Christopher Coyne, and Peter Leeson. Colin’s future plans include graduate school and career as a professor of economics.

Congratulations, Colin!

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back. Plus, Jeffrey Tucker identifies a strain in libertarianism that, left unchecked, could reduce even our vibrant movement to something that is analogous to the grim aesthetic of architectural brutalism. The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
