Learn The Foundations of Liberty and Free-Market Economics

Most universities teach a biased version of political economy that promotes big government and failed Keynesian policies. In response, the Australian Taxpayers' Alliance (with the support of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation) is pleased to offer a new course that tells the rest of the story.
The new course "Foundations of Liberty and Free-Market Economics" will introduce students to free-market ideas, and the people behind those ideas. 

Run between April and October in Sydney, the course will include 10 interactive 2-hour evening seminars that will involve guest lecturers, student-led discussion, stimulating debate, and structured material that will ensure you get the most out of your time. The seminar will be followed by further discussion over beer and free pizza. Between seminars, students will be given recommended reading and YouTube videos, and have the opportunity to ask questions from our panel of academic advisors and the ATA staff.

Guest lecturers and academic advisors include Professor Sinclair Davidson (RMIT), Dr Stephen Kirchner (CIS), Professor Jason Potts (RMIT), Tom Switzer (USyd), John Humphreys (UQ),  Julie Novak (IPA) and more to be announced shortly.

This course will cover a lot of material and provide students with the intellectual ammunition needed to take on the left, but it will also be an opportunity for networking, enjoyment and building friends within the Australian pro-freedom community. 


The 2013 program is only available in Sydney, however in 2014 shall be rolled out in other major cities. The cost of the full program is $750. However, full scholarships will be awarded to 12 deserving applicants. Applications close on 5pm AEST Monday 15th of April and the first seminar is on Thursday the 25th of April. There will be a winter break during university exams and the mid-year holidays.

Build new friendships. Gain valuable career and intellectual skills. Challenge the status quo. Enrol today.
