The 25th Anniversary Celebration

October 12-13 2007

New York, New York

STUDENTS: Apply for a Scholarship
The Mises Institute will gather in New York, with special guests Ron Paul and Andrew Napolitano, to celebrate our 25th anniversary, discuss the legacy of Mises, his students such as Murray Rothbard, and the movement Mises inspired. Together with the Mises Institute faculty, we'll look at the past and to the bright future.
We will also celebrate the release of the long-awaited and definitive biography of Ludwig von Mises by Jörg Guido Hülsmann. The writing took eight years, and is the culmination of research in five countries and six languages. There's never been anything like it in the history of biographies of economists, and it is a landmark in the history of the idea of liberty as well.

The event will be held at the Grand Hyatt New York, Park Avenue Central, connected to the famed Grand Central Terminal, adjacent to Broadway theaters, 5th Avenue Shopping, Empire State Building, Times Square, and major museums. Hotel reservations call 212-883-1234 or go here
