Austrian School of Economics: Revisionist History and Contemporary Theory, Joseph Salerno
- June 6-10, 2005
Mises Institute, Auburn, Alabama
Joseph Salerno , professor of economics at Pace University, is a leading figure in today’s growing Austrian School. He has been a pioneer in many fields, including monetary theory, comparative systems, the history of thought, and the economics of war. After the death of Murray N. Rothbard in 1995, Salerno assumed the editorship of the Review of Austrian Economics, together with Hans-Hermann Hoppe and Walter Block. He is now editor of its successor and current flagship scholarly journal, The QuarterlyJournal of Austrian Economics.
