Mises Canada aspires to inform the next generation of great thinkers. As part of that mandate, STUDENTS ATTEND OUR PROGRAMMING FOR FREE. Students are encouraged to register today to attend for the International Conference of Prices & Markets for free, on the campus of the University of Toronto.
The International Conference of Prices & Markets is designed to combine the opportunities of a professional meeting, with the added attraction of hearing and presenting new and innovative research, engaging in vigorous debate, and interacting with like-minded scholars who share research interests.
ICPM will present papers that seek to improve the understanding of the role of markets in the economy. Submissions will shed light on contemporary issues while being grounded in a praxeological reasoning. Papers will be from a variety of fields such as politics, sociology, and psychology, where ever they can bring relevance to economic and financial questions.
Select papers from the conference will be published as Papers and Proceedings of the conference in the Journal of Prices & Markets, the flagship journal of Mises Canada.
