Who We Are

This blog is written by (current and former) members of the Colloquium on Market Institutions and Economic Processes at the Department of Economics, New York University. This colloquium has its roots in the Austrian Economics Colloquium which was established at New York University in the Fall semester of 1976. Over the years our concerns grew to include public choice economics, new institutional economics as well as many areas of the interface of economics with other disciplines. We have strong interests in philosophy, history, law, political theory, psychology, and language. We also expect to be commenting on current issues. We may even disagree with each other. From time to time we shall have guest bloggers.

The opinions expressed are those of the authors alone and do not necessarily represent the views of New York University, the Department of Economics or the organizations with which the contributors are affiliated.
