The Mises Institute has Murray Rothbard’s copy of John Maynard Keynes’ The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money. Rothbard was not afraid to make comments in the margins, so looking inside is like listening in on Murray’s private thoughts. A quite a few thoughts there are:
If you liked the portrait of Keynes on the top of page 316, you’ll love the doodles on the cover pages:
One of my favorite comments is Rothbard’s reply to Keynes when Keynes wrote, “Those who are strongly wedded to what I shall call ‘the classical theory’, will fluctuate, I expect, between a belief that I am quite wrong and a belief that I am saying nothing new.”

Murray Rothbard was a prolific writer. Thanks to the Mises Institute, much of his work can be found online, but there are still many articles that anarcho-capitalists have never read because only physical copies exist. For one such article, that changes today.
Simon Franek sends along this article that he found in the FEE archive. It is from the May 1973 edition of New Libertarian Notes. Click the image below for the PDF.

Exciting news! The Mises Institute will be running a libertarian research conference on Saturday, October 20th, 2018 in New York City. Called the Libertarian Scholars Conference, it will be a forum for discussing ideas on liberty from any discipline.
The conference is calling for paper submissions so, if you have an article that you have been working on or some idea that has been brewing, this event will be your opportunity to get feedback from the world’s libertarian thought leaders. Even if you don’t want to write or present a paper, you can still attend to get an early look at cutting-edge libertarian research and spend some quality time with your fellow liberty-lovers.
