Hoppe the Great

-Lew Rockwell
On March 14th, the final day of the 2015 Austrian Economic Research Conference at the Mises Institute, I presented Hans-Hermann Hoppe with the Murray N. Rothbard Medal of Freedom. There can be no more fitting tribute to Hans. Indeed, during his introduction of Hans, Joseph Salerno described him as “the great living embodiment of Rothbard’s thought.”

​Before the medal’s presentation, Hans treated the AERC audience to a libertarian masterpiece on “Man, Nature, Truth, and Justice.” It was the Ludwig von Mises Memorial Lecture, and very much worth watching.
