First Meeting: The Bitcoin Revolution with Special Guest Jeffrey Tucker
After a long summer, the Mises Circle is back for its fourth semester of engaging economic discussion in the tradition of the Austrian school. This semester we are continuing to fuel our obsession with Bitcoin by examining every economic of aspect of crypto-currencies possible, from the potential threat of government and the current regulatory and compliance environment of Bitcoin to the economics of alt-coins.
Kicking off this journey into the economics of the digital age is a discussion with the legendary Jeffrey Tucker on what makes Bitcoin truly revolutionary, what we can learn about society from Satoshi Nakamoto, and what potential crypto-currencies offer to a world facing economic disaster.
Jeffrey Tucker is the executive editor of Laissez-Faire Books and distinguished fellow at the Foundation for Economic Education. He acted as editorial vice president of the Ludwig von Mises Institute for 15 years and authored a number of books including Bourbon for Breakfast, It’s a Jetson’s World, and A Beautiful Anarchy. He is also the organizer of the Crypto-Currency Conference in Atlanta, GA, on October 5th (Mises Circle co-founder Michael Goldstein and the “intellectual shaman” of the group, Daniel Krawisz, will be on a panel at this event.)
When: Monday, September 9th at 7pm CDT
Where: Garrison 2.112
