Tom G. Palmer is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, and director of Cato University, the Institute’s educational arm. Palmer is also the executive vice president for international programs at the Atlas Economic Research Foundation, and is responsible for establishing operating programs in 14 languages and managing programs for a worldwide network of think tanks. Before joining Cato he was an H. B. Earhart Fellow at Hertford College, Oxford University, and a vice president of the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University. He frequently lectures in North America, Europe, Africa, Latin America, India, China, and throughout Asia and the Middle East on political science, public choice, civil society, and the moral, legal, and historical foundations of individual rights. He has published reviews and articles on politics and morality in scholarly journals such as the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, Ethics, Critical Review, and Constitutional Political Economy, as well as in publications such as Slate, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Die Welt, Caixing, Al Hayat, the Washington Post, and The Spectator of London. He is the author of Realizing Freedom: Libertarian Theory, History, and Practice, published in 2009, and the editor of The Morality of Capitalism, published in 2011. Palmer received his B.A. in liberal arts from St. Johns College in Annapolis, Maryland, his M.A. in philosophy from The Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C., and his doctorate in politics from Oxford University.

T.J. Rodgers and Valeta Massey will not be able to attend this year as they did last year, but in their stead they've generously donated plenty of very good wine from their own vineyard for us to enjoy!


Ludwig von Mises was born September 29th, 1881.  As Henry Hazlitt said, “He was the greatest economist of his generation. He was more than that. He was one of the social thinkers of our age… I never heard a word of personal bitterness or resentment from his lips… It was this powerful challenge, forcing socialists to face their central problem that once caused a Marxist economist, Oskar Lange who later became a member of the Polish Politburo, to declare in admiration that 'in front of every socialist Ministry of Planning there should be a statue of Ludwig von Mises.'"

"It is difficult to conceive of any person in our time who has given the world so much, yet been rewarded so little in return." ---Robert Bidinotto

w"Mr. von Mises believed in choice. He believed that choosing among options determines all human decisions and hence the entire sphere of human action...  While man could destroy himself and civilization, he could also ascend -- in a free society, i.e., a free economy -- to undreamed-of cultural, intellectual and technological heights."  ---The Wall Street Journal

"Mises was right." ---Robert Heilbroner, The New Yorker, 1990

Called the last knight of classical liberalism, Mises did more to defeat totalitarianism than perhaps any other man of his age.   Though he once said "we are the spoiled scions of past savings," we, here, now, can likewise appreciate that we are the spoiled scions of Mises.
