The other participants (except for this one) have advertised it, so I might as well, too: This Saturday, April 9th, I’ll be speaking at the Boston University Libertarian Society’s Liberty Conference. My topic will be “Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss: Thoughts on the New Paternalism.”
ADDENDUM: Someone in the BU Libertarian Society has studied economics, because their compensation system provides excellent incentives. Most of the time when I travel to give a lecture, I am provided with a fixed honorarium for the lecture itself, plus reimbursement for travel and lodging (sometimes with a ceiling, sometimes not). The result is that I pay little or no attention to the price of travel and hotel, as I have no incentive to compare the value of amenities to their price. The BU Libertarian Society, however, is providing me with a lump-sum that is a noticeably larger than my typical honorarium, out of which I must cover my own travel and lodging. The result, of course, is that I chose a somewhat less convenient flight and a somewhat less attractive hotel than I normally would, in order to keep the extra cash.
