A Nice Letter About Me, Bob Murphy, Gary North, Lew Rockwell and Tom Woods

I invited M to a seminar I was holding at Loyola for high school teachers. Here is his response:

Dear Walter Block,
You have been a great teacher to me. You are one of the many who helped turn me to teaching Economics. I’ve been reading LRC and Mises.org since the early 2000s. More accurately, I’ve read Lewrockwell.com very nearly daily since around 2002 or 2003. I count you, Gary North, and Tom Woods as my three most influential economists. My current textbook is Lessons for the Young Economist by Roberty P. Murphy. So, it is with great enthusiasm that I answer your call.
However, I teach at a school in Shanghai, China. And in November 2016, classes will be in session and I will be unable to attend what would surely be a great event at Loyola. In my place, I heartily recommend one Mr. C, a high school economics teacher and video producer from ACDCLeadership on Youtube (and also a co-host of Crash Course Economics (also on YouTube). While he is not a pure Rothbardian, he does have a definite free-market lean. His videos are well done, and are highly viewed (especially before AP exam season). I have used many of his videos to help clarify different concepts in my classes. And even though my students are not native English speakers, they follow his meaning fairly well. Also, with ACDC’s following on YouTube, I’m sure Mr. C would have many connections who would be interested in the conference at Loyola.
Best regards to you, much appreciation, and many more thanks than one should reasonably write in the sign-off of an e-mail,
M
