On the first of a three-part series on academia and libertarianism, Peter Boettke and David Prychitko share a conversation on their early experiences in graduate school. They discuss why the work of Don Lavoie was so instrumental in their formations as young scholars and how they both were introduced to various libertarian influences within economics. As part of the conversation, they also discuss the role of reading broadly in research and the importance of maintaining a multi-disciplinary approach to learning.
