Hoppe and Hülsmann: holiday homework

Here's a bit of a treat; a series of 11 lectures given in September 2005 by Hans-Hermann Hoppe and Jörg Guido Hülsmann as an introduction to Austrian economics. The lecture below is the last of the series, but it's the first one I found, and the only one I've watched. I came to it via an article at Stephan Kinsella's Centre for the Study of Innovative Freedom, highlighting Hoppe's view, or rather his endorsement of Kinsella's view on intellectual property. Yet again, I marvel at the huge resources at my finger tips, and I celebrate the smashing of the information blockade which for so long allowed the BBC and their MSM allies to ration out the knowledge.

As I said, the above is Part 11. The whole series is as follows:

Part 1 - Mises and the Austrian School (by Jörg Guido Hülsmann)
Part 2 - Value, Utility and Price (by Jörg Guido Hülsmann)
Part 3 - Division of Labour and Money (by Hans-Hermann Hoppe)
Part 4 - The Theory of Banking (by Hans-Hermann Hoppe)
Part 5 - Capital and Interest (by Hans-Hermann Hoppe)
Part 6 - Praxeology: The Austrian Method (by Hans-Hermann Hoppe)
Part 7 - Business Cycle Theory (by Jörg Guido Hülsmann)
Part 8 - The Economics of Deflation (by Jörg Guido Hülsmann)
Part 9 -Theory and History (by Hans-Hermann Hoppe)
Part 10 - Welfare Economics (by Jörg Guido Hülsmann)
Part 11 -Law and Economics (by Hans-Hermann Hoppe)

With thanks to Nielso's channel, and The Copenhagen Institute and Liberator who first made it available.
