Subject: Your Defense of the Undefendable

Hi Dr. Block! I finished reading your book, Defending the Undefendable, earlier this evening and I just wanted to say that, despite having had the urge to recoil in more than one occasion, I found myself agreeing with your analysis. Your chapters on the (non-government) counterfeiter, the curmudgeon, and the speculator struck me particularly as profound, although I found all other chapters to contain valuable insight into practical economic services as seen through the lens of the Austrian. I plan to attend the Mises University Summer Fellowship in order to further my knowledge of Austrian economics and to improve my prospects of doing research on that basis at a graduate program. Will you by any chance be there? Best regards, J

Dear J: Will I be there? Will I be there? I most certainly will be there, if I am invited back. I expect I will once again be on the program, since I’ve been a speaker at pretty much every Mises University (https://mises.org/events/mises-university-2017) since it started many years ago. Indeed, it is my second favorite gathering in the entire year, right after the AERC (https://mises.org/events/aerc-2018) which I suggest you attend as well. Thanks for your kind words about that book of mine. Hey, if you liked Defending I, you might also like Defending II: Block, Walter E. 2013.

I’m now working on Defending III, so you’ll have to wait a bit for that book.
