    Mises Institute Announces Dr. Thomas DiLorenzo as President
    {Mises Insttitute | 30 October 2023}

    Auburn, Ala. – The Mises Institute announced that Thomas DiLorenzo has been named its next president, following approval by its Board of Directors.

    DiLorenzo has a long and distinguished career as an academic economist, author, and speaker. He was Professor of Economics at Loyola University, Maryland, from 1992 to 2020. He served previously as the Probasco Chair of Free Enterprise at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Assistant and Associate Professor of Economics at George Mason University, John M. Olin Visiting Professor of American Business at Washington University, St. Louis, and Assistant Professor of Economics at the State University of New York at Buffalo. A specialist in political economy, public choice economics, and economic history, his books include The Real Lincoln (2002) and Lincoln Unmasked (2008), Hamilton’s Curse (2009), The Politically Incorrect Guide to Economics (2022), How Capitalism Saved America (2004), Destroying Democracy (1985), Underground Government (1983), and many others.

    DiLorenzo’s research has been published in journals such as the American Economic Review, Public Choice, Southern Economic Journal, Economic Inquiry, Journal of Labor Research, and other outlets. DiLorenzo is a Senior Fellow of the Mises Institute and has been associated with the Institute for many decades. He received his Ph.D. in Economics from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 1979.

    “Tom DiLorenzo is a brilliant scholar, writer, and speaker and has long been dedicated to the Mises Institute’s mission,” said Lew Rockwell, Founder and Chairman of the Mises Institute. “We’re delighted that Dr. DiLorenzo will be joining us as our next president. His scholarship, leadership abilities, and commitment to the cause of liberty make him the ideal person to continue the excellent work of the Institute. He joins us after a thorough and comprehensive search led by the Board of Directors.”

    “The Mises Institute continues to be a beacon of liberty and the leading center of research, teaching, and outreach in the tradition of the Austrian School of economics,” said Peter Klein, chair of the search committee. “Tom has the academic and professional experience to spearhead this effort in the years to come.”

    Based in Auburn, Ala., and reporting to the Board of Directors, DiLorenzo will oversee all aspects of the Mises Institute’s programs and operations.

    “It is the honor of a lifetime to be entrusted with continuing the mission of the Mises Institute that Lew started forty-one years ago,” said DiLorenzo. “In the back of my mind I will always be thinking that Murray Rothbard and Ludwig von Mises are looking over my shoulder every day. In fact, I intend to have framed portraits of both of them on the wall behind my desk at the Institute. I am forever grateful to Lew and the board of directors for giving me this opportunity to expand the scope and impact of the Misesian/Rothbardian tradition of Austrian economic scholarship and education.”

    About the Mises Institute

    The Mises Institute, founded in 1982, teaches the scholarship of Austrian economics, freedom, and peace. The liberal intellectual tradition of Ludwig von Mises (1881–1973) and Murray N. Rothbard (1926–1995) guides us. Accordingly, we seek a profound and radical shift in the intellectual climate: away from statism and toward a private property order. We encourage critical historical research, and stand against political correctness. The Institute serves students, academics, business leaders, and anyone seeking a better understanding of the Austrian School of economics and libertarian political theory.
