Rothbard University 2018


“It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.’ But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.”  
— Murray Rothbard

Causal-Realist Economics, for the Real World
July 11-14, 2018
University of Toronto Campus

Rothbard University is the first instructional program of its kind in Canada: a 3-day collection of lectures, courses, and engaged discourse about the Austrian school of economics, in the past led by dynamic thinkers such as David Howden, Glenn Fox, Shawn Ritenour, and Pierre Desrochers.

Rothbard University will allow you to meet fellow-minded individuals, new friends and establish a network that you can draw on the rest of your life. Share your experiences and learn from others, all in the environment surrounded by like-minded aspiring Austrian economists. All accepted students will attend for free, including accommodations and tuition.


There is no tuition fee for Rothbard University for students who are accepted. All students who are accepted on full scholarship will receive complimentary admission to all sessions, lectures, refreshment breaks, and a double-occupancy dormitory room for 3 nights. Students are required to arrange for and pay any costs associated with travel and food.


Just as with last year’s inaugural program, we’ve opened the event to the public. Non-students are welcome to register to attend for only $400 for the full program or $200 for one day. Registration will open soon.
