    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_Horwitz




    Steven "Steve" Horwitz (born 7 February 1964) is an American economist of the Austrian School.

    He received his M.A. (1987) and Ph.D. (1990) in Economics from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.

    In 1989, Horwitz joined the economics department of St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York, where he continues to be employed at present. In 1993, he was appointed the inaugural Flora Irene Eggleston Chair in Economics. He was promoted to associate professor with tenure in 1995 and to full professor in 2002. In 1999, he was awarded the annual Frank Piskor Lectureship, and in 2003 he was the recipient of the J. Calvin Keene award, which recognizes high standards of personal scholarship, effective teaching and moral concern. In 2007, Horwitz was elected by the faculty to one of six campus-wide Charles A. Dana Professorships.


    At St. Lawrence, Horwitz served as the Associate Dean of the First Year from 2001–2007, overseeing the university’s First Year Program. He has a national reputation as an expert on living-learning programs and on teaching research and communication skills to first-year students. He was also Interim Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning in 2003–04.


    Horwitz is a long-time faculty member at the summer seminars of the Institute for Humane Studies and the Foundation for Economic Education. In the summer of 2007, he was a visiting scholar at the Social Philosophy and Policy Center at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. Horwitz is also an Affiliated Senior Scholar of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia, where he has conducted nationally-recognized research on the role of Wal-Mart and the Coast Guard in the response to Hurricane Katrina. He is also a Senior Fellow of the Fraser Institute in Canada and has been a member of the Mont Pelerin Society since 1996.



    Most of Horwitz’s professional work has been in the area of monetary theory and macroeconomics from an Austrian school perspective, with his 2000 book

    'We endorse the idea of voluntarism; self-responsibility: Family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion: It never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person; it can't make you follow good habits.' - Ron Paul 1988
