A friend familiar with Austrian school economics sends along the following tentative syllabus for a course on "Austrian economics" taught by Daniel Smith, an associate professor of economics at Troy University and an associate director of the Koch-funded, Troy affiliated, Manuel H. Johnson Center for Political Economy.
Smith received his Masters and PhD from the Koch-funded economics department at George Masom University,
His course ECO6661 Austrian Economics will in Week 5 cover Natural Disasters and Recovery, Week 6 covers Prisons Gangs.
Notes an observer: There is no coverage of price theory, capital theory, product theory or the theory of entrepreneurship.
There are no assigned readings of Mises, Rothbard or even Kirzner.
