I was recently asked to write a few words of recommendation for Dr Barbara Kolm of the Hayek Institute in Vienna, and I was more than happy to oblige!
As well as heading up the Hayek Institute, Barbara is also a board member of the Austrian Economics Centre, a member of the Mont Pelerin Society, and President of the European Centre for Economic Growth, so it comes as no surprise that she has been dedicated to the promotion of free markets and deregulation.
In 2015 I had the pleasure of interviewing Barbara in Budapest after we had both attended the Freemarket Roadshow. Any of you living in Europe should seek the next opportunity to attend these events featured annually in Europe’s leading cities.
In 2010, Barbara travelled to our shores to speak at The Sun Rises in the West conference in Perth, and her speech is available below in two parts. Her overview of Western Civilisation’s contribution to the world’s living standards and prosperity is truly an inspiration in these times when many are unsure about our immediate future.
At Mannkal we often use our links to Barbara’s videos and written material to introduce our scholars to the remarkable world of individual responsibility, and we look forward to our next opportunity of spending time in the presence of Dr. Barbara Kolm.
