Australis Libertas

April 20, 2015

I am pleased to announce that I am currently on my way to Sydney, Australia! The Centre for Independent Studies in Australia has invited me to deliver a talk about The Morality of Capitalism on Thursday, April 23rd. If you are interested in attending the event or learning more about it, then you can visit the event-page here.

I was able to deliver a lecture entitled “Foundations of Modern Political Economy” at Zaman University in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The program was organized by ZamanU Political Science and International Relations Department and the Professional Research Institute for Management & Economics (PRIME). It was a great experience and my first visit to the wonderful country of Cambodia. A video of the entire lecture can be found below or you can watch it on Youtube here. If this is a topic that interests you, then you should look into obtaining a copy of The Morality of Capitalism for free here or you’d rather have a physical copy then you can obtain it through Amazon, here, very cheaply.

After the Welfare State has now been translated into French and is downloadable at zero price. France, in its current state, is in desperate need of liberal attitudes, especially for the problem of the Welfare State. This book offers a glimpse of how France can operate after the welfare state. If you are interested in an English translation, it can be found here.

Why Liberty - Russian Translation

I am always pleased when my writings can be read in new languages. Pictured is the new Russian translation of Why Liberty–just in time for a country that is suffering from an increasingly despotic leadership. Thanks to some good friends in Moscow for translating it.

Why Liberty in Portuguese

Many people do not realize that Portuguese is a major worldwide language, labeled an official language in nine countries, including Portugal, Brazil, and Angola. So I am pleased that Why Liberty has now been translated into Portuguese as well.

Why Liberty’s English translation can be downloaded for free here.

This is the front cover of the Hindi translation of Peace, Love & Liberty, which was launched during my recent trip to India. I had the chance to visit with many liberty lovers in India and attend several conferences that were extremely worthwhile. I was also present for the launch of the Hindi version of Peace, Love & Liberty, which can be downloaded for free here. There were a number of articles printed in Indian media about the newly published book, those can be found here.

This link contains various essays by yours truly, in Chinese, thanks to The Babel Institute. Any time my essays are translated, I am pleased that people that speak that language are able to read them. So, if you know anyone who speaks and reads Chinese, feel free to send this along to them.

Speaking of Asia, I will be there in the coming days. I’ll be heading to the Asia Liberty Forum in Kathmandu, Nepal. The event occurs from January 8th through 10th and will include a range of speakers and thinkers from all over Asia.

Later, on January 17th and 18th, I’ll be attending the First Annual South Asia Students for Liberty Conference. It will be held in Delhi, India, and should be a momentous event for liberty in the subcontinent. I’ll be joined by other speakers, like Barun Mitra, Ken Schoolland, Christopher Lingle, Jerry Johnson. If you’re interested in going, this is the Facebook page for the event, which has more details.

I was able to film this interview with Espreso.tv in the Ukraine. I speak in English, which is then translated into Ukrainian, about Putin, collapse in Russia, Ukrainian politics, and free markets.

Over the past few days, I’ve been pleased to be able to participate in a number of events, first in Ukraine and then in Greece. In Ukraine, I was fortunate to be able to address the European Students for Liberty conference in Kyiv. Ukraine is a country and region in crisis that is desperately in need of the liberty message and I was pleased to be able to play a role in the conference. European Students for Liberty is doing some great work in Ukraine in regards to free markets and liberty.

As you can see from some of the pictures, there was a healthy attendance and the students seemed to enjoy themselves greatly. We were able to distribute many copies of The Morality of Capitalism in Ukrainian. There was a review published of the Ukrainian edition of The Morality of Capitalism, as well. The only negative from the conference was that Kakha Bendukidze, who had plans to attend the event, had recently passed away. While the conference was occurring, The New Yorker printed this article of appreciation about our hero Kakha Bendukidze, whom we honored that weekend in Ukraine. After the lecture at Kyiv National University and interview on EspresoTV with Mykola Veresen’. I had a meeting with Ukrainian economists working on reforms.

There were a few opportunities for interviews in Greece, which gave me the opportunity to explain libertarianism in a country that has been plagued with debt, anarchism, and state failings for years now.

I was able to conduct a number of interviews in Greece. Amongst them were this interview in in.gr, which is the major news portal in the country, with more than three-million unique visitors per month. Athens Voice is the largest free press (one that was recently attacked by anti-capitalist anarchists when their offices were reduced to ashes) and I was pleased to be able to do an interview with them as well, found here. MarketNews.gr is one of the most well respected financial websites in the country, I gave an interview for them which has now been published.

We were able to see Greek translations of Why Liberty and Peace, Love & Liberty printed and on display. Both of those books can be downloaded for free in English here. I was able to attend a few more events in Greece, including an event at The Amalia Hotel called “A static Europe in a progressive world? How much freedom is good for a society?”

Next was the Greek Students for Liberty Conference, also in Athens. This is an organization of students organizing for liberty who I am very proud to be associated with. Their conference was well attended and gives me hope for the future of free markets and liberty in Greece.

I am proud to be associated with so many liberty and free market-oriented groups, events, and people. This trip to two countries and regions that have struggled with these issues recently gives me hope that we can spread the message of liberty to every corner of the globe.

I’m pleased to announce that in January I’ll be speaking at events in Nepal and India. These are countries that have a budding interest in liberty and free markets, so it is wonderful to see student organizations and events occurring there.
