Hillsdale for Austrians and Cato for climate realists

Two weekends ago a trip to Hillsdale College (90 miles out of Detroit) MI for a conference on Austrian economics, this is the live stream of the lead speakers. Never mind Wapshott’s lightweight gossip.

Hillsdale has the distinction of being one of the two US colleges which takes ZERO state funding. The other is (possibly) Grove City.

From Wik.

Hillsdale College is a co-educational, non-profit liberal arts college in Hillsdale, Michigan, United States.[4] Most of the curriculum is based on and centered on the teaching of the Western heritage as a product of both the Greco-Roman culture and the Judeo-Christian tradition.[5] Hillsdale requires every student, regardless of major, to complete a core curriculum that includes courses on the Great Books and the U.S. Constitution.[6] The college declines to accept federal financial support, providing private financial assistance to its students.[7]

This week a major conference of Austrians and others in Washington DC and yesterday lunch with Dan Mitchell.

And this is why the concerns I had about a Hillary Clinton presidency aren’t that different from the concerns I have about a Donald Trump presidency.

Simply stated, he apparently doesn’t even think there’s a problem that needs to be addressed. Here’s what Trump said in an interview with the Daily Signal.

I’m not going to cut Social Security like every other Republican and I’m not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid.

Dan is really pleased with the response from Cats when his links are on the site. Then a session with his Cato colleagues Pat Michaels and Terence Kealey. Following Pat’s book Lukewarming the are doing a major study of how science goes wrong when the state gets involved.

    I think Hillsdale College has statues of Reagan,Thatcher and Churchill amongst other notables on their Liberty Walk on campus.
    Indeed, you would swallow with these people.

    They put out a good, free, monthly magazine called “Imprimis” (meaning first things).
    You can access this magazine online or possibly have it snail mailed.

    I’ve enrolled in Hillsdale’s online courses and they’re wonderful. This college is doing yeoman’s work in constitutional studies et al. and for the good of the American people – luckily we can all benefit.

    A very beautiful campus as well.
