I am still in the process of organizing the lectures and creating the classes. I will eventually add reading materials and supplementals to the lecture series. Currently I have around 150 individual lectures posted.
Here is a free online treatise on Austrian economic theory by Rothbard, Man, Economy and State. This book will teach you everything you need to know about Austrian theory from the ground up. It is written at the junior college level, suitable for the intelligent layman. You can order a hardbound version here (which I HIGHLY recommend doing) for a very reasonable price.
The following link will open your iTunes program and take you to the Mises Institute’s iTunes University store page where you can download hundreds of free lectures on Austrian economics. Obviously you must have iTunes installed for the link to work correctly:
If these lectures have piqued your interest, you can buy a professional 52 week home study course in Austrian economics from the Mises institute here.
After many years of preparation, we are very pleased to introduce a complete curriculum and method for your first year of study in Austrian Economics.
There is no better way to learn Austrian economics than from this organized curriculum that takes you from A to Z in the Austrian tradition. This in-depth overview of the modern Austrian School, its theory, approach to history, and policy implications will train you to think through all economic problems. Whether you are preparing for college, graduate school, professional life, or just want to learn, this is the ideal program. It is structured to take you step-by-step through the entire range of the Austrian world view.
The coursework is divided into 52 lessons to cover 52 weeks, a complete year of study that can be pursued at home. With the Home Study Course, you can stick to the schedule or go at your own pace.
The year-long course is prepared by Professor Robert Murphy (PhD, NYU) in consultation with Mises Institute staff and other faculty.
Each week covers one topic, and is tied to an hour-long lecture and related readings. It includes study questions to guide your learning and research. The audio lectures are selected from among hundreds of hours of lectures so that you are given access to the best of the best, with lectures by great Austrian economists ranging over 30 years.
This course gives you what no live classroom can, which is the opportunity to study with a huge faculty of specialists and their lectures over a long span of time and at a pace that is right for you.
The lessons are divided into these general areas: The Core of Austrian Theory, Ethical Foundations, Applied Economic Topics, Government Distortions, Economic History, Alternative Schools of Thought, and Perspectives on the Past and Future. Within each are the 52 lectures tied to readings from the Austrian literature.
The set arrives with a 52-week Lesson Plan and Study Guide, 16 books, a Supplemental Readings packet, and 52 hours of audio lectures (format: MP3, which is standard for computers, and newer CD players in home and car). Everything is included. You do not need internet access to undertake and complete the course.
