Hello. My name is Joseph Fetz, and if you’ve been around the more libertarian and/or Austrian oriented sites around the net, then you’ve probably seen me pop up here and there. I am a Marxist turned conservative turned libertarian, so I’ve essentially done a political 180º over the past 15 years or so. While I was always into learning the social sciences, I didn’t really get deep into Austrian economics until about 2006 or so, basically about the time I became more aware of Ron Paul. Before this time I was primarily a neoclassical economically. I am also a Navy vet, which you can read about at this link: http://lewrockwell.com/orig12/fetz1.1.1.html Today I work in the demolition field and I absolutely hate it. LOL
I’ve always been a student of history, but over the past 5 years I’ve gotten far more into economics, political philosophy, ethics and epistemology. However, lately I’ve been wanting to get back into studying history, but there is only so much time in the day. BOOM, next thing I know Tom is coming out with this thing, and he’s got Kevin Gutzman and Jeff Herbinger involved in it (sorry, I’m just getting familiar with the other guys). So, as you can imagine, it made sense to try it out.
Anyhow, that’s my abridged story, and I look forward to seeing you guys around. Hopefully, this thing turns into a success. I think that it will, because I have a pretty high standard and I am impressed thus far.
