Happy Foss-hmmmm-Crowley Day

We bloggers are a narcissistic bunch. My co-blogger has started a tradition of wishing our readers “Happy Hayek-Klein Day ” on his birthday, and obviously I wish to start a similar  tradition. Unfortunately, no famous Austrian economists were born on October 12. The closest we can get is the granting of the Ph.D. to Murray Rothbard, but that was Oct. 11 (1956).

I am afraid the perhaps most famous person with an intellectual occupation born on 12 October is . . . the notorious Aleister Crowley (b. 1875), “The Great Beast 666,” “The Wickedest Man in the World,” a libertine rather than a libertarian — and the grandfather of George W. Bush (at least according to this blog). 

How I will celebrate? Well, I have a nice 4-hours lecture on transaction cost economics to deliver. Such joy . . .
