Something For the Weekend: Thomas Woods on Culture and Enterprise

Last Thursday I attended the Culture of Enterprise event at the Cato Institute, “What Should Be a Culture of Enterprise in an Age of Globalization.” Thomas Woods gave a talk that was an absolute tour de force and, fortunately, it’s available on-line. Hear it here (MP3), or watch it here (Real video). Those links also inclue Olaf Gersemann’s talk following Tom’s; Gersemann was thought-provoking in his own right, though he acknowledged that coming after Tom’s talk put him at a tremendous disadvantage.

The later panel with Ed Stringham, Bryan Caplan, and the Acton Institute’s Kevin Schmiesing is also worth a viewing or a listen, particularly for Caplan’s discussion of “political culture” versus “personal culture” as factors in producing prosperity.

    Dan, great seeing you in D.C. Many thanks for the kind words. FYI, the link to the mp3 of my panel is actually a link to the Real Video.

    Ah, I must have mixed up the link. I’ll correct that later today. Good to see you too, Tom.

    Any clues when Tom Woods’ new book will be out, and what the title will be?

    “I’m sworn to secrecy!”

    We’ll just have to ask the NSA then.
