2019 Mises Institute Supporters Summit:
75 years ago, in October 1944, Ludwig von Mises addressed a select group of business leaders at The California Club in Los Angeles. In 2019, we returned to the same historic venue to celebrate him and his important work with friends from all around the world for this year's Supporters Summit. Featuring talks by Jeff Deist, Lew Rockwell, Tom Woods, Peter Klein, Michael Bolden, and Patrick Newman this event was not simply a great celebration of Mises the man, but the continuing legacy and importance of his work. Audio is available here.

Special thanks to the Harvey Allison family for making this event possible.
