Mises University Graduates


Tags EducationAustrian Economics Overview


On my recent trip to the Oxford Union debate in the UK I had the good fortune to be able to attend a lecture by Ben Powell at the Adam Smith Institute in London.

Ben attended Mises University in 1999 and 2000 and now teaches economics at Texas Tech University where he is also Director of the Free Market Institute. At his lecture I also saw David Skarbek who attended Mises University in 2004 and 2007. David now is a Lecturer in political economy at King's College London.

I also renewed my acquaintance with Sam Bowman. Sam attended the Mises University in 2009 and is now Director of Research at the Adam Smith Institute. Ben gave an outstanding lecture on the economics of sweatshops, but I was also immensely pleased to see all three outstanding graduates of Mises University and to learn of their ongoing accomplishments.

With Same Bowman, Ben Powell, and David Skarbek.




Mark Thornton is a Senior Fellow at the Mises Institute and the book review editor of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics. He has authored seven books and is a frequent guest on national radio shows.
