Peter Klein is the Carl Menger Research Fellow of the Mises Institute and Professor of Entrepreneurship at Baylor University. He is an Adjunct Professor of Strategy and Management at the Norwegian School of Economics. He earned his PhD in economics at the University of CA in Berkeley and is a former Associate Editor of The Collected Works of F. A. Hayek. This is the first interview in what I hope is a long line of in-depth interviews with various figures in the greater Austro-Libertarian movement. This was transcribed from a podcast I had done with Peter Klein earlier this year. I have long been a fan of the specific types of content that can be drawn from a long-form interview and attempted to create a podcast around this. I discovered, however, that podcasting is just too much for me. So I am attempting the interview model again, this time in writing. –CJE
Editor’s note: the following answer was a little bit difficult to transcribe in a way that made sense, given the oral nature of its original expression. Brackets are where I summarize the statement.
