The New Austrian School of Economics is a series of lectures established by Professor Antal E. Fekete which examines a branch of
economic science mainly based on the work of Carl Menger (1840-1921) and the theories of Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich August von Hayek.
Professor Antal E. Fekete is an expert on monetary science. In 1984 the American Institute of Economic Research in Massachusetts
appointed him to the Committee of Monetary Research and Education to spend a year as visiting fellow. After one year he was invited by
Congressman William E. Dannemeyer to work in Washington D.C. on fiscal and monetary reform of the United States.

Professor Antal Fekete is an intellectual heavyweight who could probably solve almost any problem to
which he puts his mind. In mathematics, just one of his unpublished theories has the potential to solve
the coming bottleneck in computing power and artificial intelligence. Yet it is to the science of monetary
theory that the professor has devoted most of his thinking in the past few years, and we are all fortunate
that he has done so. Personally, I feel especially lucky to have had a chance to collaborate with him over
the past year or two, and I eagerly look forward to many years more.|
I may only be exaggerating slightly when I say that the professor's exposition -- right in front of our
eyes -- of a unified economic and monetary theory may turn out to be as important scientifically as some
of the greatest discoveries in physics, chemistry or medicine. After attending the second Gold Standard
University Live session in Szombathely, Hungary, in August of 2007, I coined the phrase "prosperity theory"
in an attempt to capture the true meaning of Professor Fekete's work: nothing less than THE BLUEPRINT for
how society can have the best chance to prosper. This unified theory is so staggering in its importance
that I'm fairly certain people many centuries from now will look back at this period, and the professor's
work, as a "Golden Age" of monetary thinking. No, I did not take any drugs while writing this although
reading or listening to the professor's sage words can sometimes elicit some drug-like reactions!
I highly recommend that everyone attend as many of the professor's live seminars as possible because the
full effect of his greatness is best appreciated in person, especially for the layman. You never know, the
experience may turn out to be as priceless in retrospect as having attended a lecture by Adam Smith, Sir
Isaac Newton or Albert Einstein before they were recognized for their greatness. Whether you get a chance
to catch the professor live or not, all of his writings are must reading for the serious student of money,
gold, finance and economics.
