Faculty Ambush

Faculty Ambush

New Liberty Classroom subscriber Eric Durtche emailed the website a week ago about the Real Dissent giveaway promotion and quickly received a personal response from Dr. Woods.  He then tweeted, “I emailed  and got a personal reply from @ThomasEWoods. Classy guy. Never deleting! Lol.”

I took the personal touch a step further.  Eric lives nearby (we don’t know each other), so I ambushed him today at his house with a signed copy of my Founding Fathers Guide to the Constitution.


Join Liberty Classroom, get educated, and maybe get ambushed by one of the faculty with a free book.  Who can beat that?

What’s Wrong with Textbook Economics: An Austrian Critique (Our Newest Course!)

Our most recent course — our eleventh! — is already being downloaded by our members: “What’s Wrong With Textbook Economics?

I consider the idea for this course to be among the ten best ideas I have ever had.

Until now, there has been no systematic Austrian response to a mainstream economics text. The major Austrian treatises do not touch upon many of the concepts that students will encounter in their classroom texts. We need a resource that sifts out what is correct from what is incorrect or confused in the mainstream text. And now we have it.

Professor Jeffrey Herbener has taken the highly popular Samuelson/Nordhaus Economics textbook and subjected it to a chapter-by-chapter critique. (See the topics below.) It is the tool we Austrians have been waiting for.

Save yourself lots of trouble and agony by hearing the Austrian reply to what is routinely presented to students. Learn how to respond to typical claims by non-Austrians. Deepen your knowledge and understanding of Austrian economics.

Not to mention: ask the professor all the questions you like, in our discussion forums. And for this month’s live Q&A session we’ll bring on Professor Herbener and you can ask your questions live!

Of course, we have ten other courses, too, in both video and audio, for easy listening on the go.

I now even find myself constantly correcting my own textbooks. This resource is invaluable!

- J.L.

Tom Woods and company should have their heads examined for practically giving away college level lectures on real history.
