Virginia Job Listing

3 Oct
A friend tells us:

Speaking of getting involved with allied organizations in order to win endorsements and spread the gospel…

I attended a NOVA NORML monthly meeting last evening (Allen St Pierre, President of National NORML, was the guest speaker) and I learned that Jeremy Grandstaff will be stepping down as President of Virginia NORML. Yes, that’s the top statewide position in Virginia. An election is planned to be held at the Annual Virginia NORML Conference next month in Williamsburg. There is no heir apparent and no one I spoke with — including Jeremy — knows where we’ll find the interest/capability/commitment.


And, no, I’m not interested.


However, this still seems like an opportunity. Do any of you have thoughts or suggestions on an available libertarian with these qualities? Good organization skills? It might also be nice if s/he is also a member of NORML…

Editorial job opening

Are you interested in becoming an editor of a prestigious journal? The founder of the American Review of Political Economy is now looking for a successor. This is not an Austrian economics journal, nor it is one solely dedicated to libertarianism, my own two major interests. Instead, while it is very much open to these perspectives and will continue to be, its pages are available, also, to other heterodox viewpoints as well as to orthodox ones. The new editor would have to undertake to be true to this long-established mission of the American Review of Political Economy.  However, I think this is altogether a good thing. It is important for us Austro libertarians not only to focus on our own interests (happily, there are now many journals that do precisely that), but also to be open to the views of others, and have a vehicle that will introduce our own viewpoints to them.
I myself have since 2008 been involved with publishing in this journal, under the splendid editorship of
Zagros Madjd-Sadjadi, Ph.D.
Professor of Economics &
Chair, Department of Economics and Finance
