Economist Discusses MTSU Alumnus Buchanan’s Work (video)

Donald Boudreaux, a professor of economics at George Mason University who also blogs at CafeHayek.com, delivered an April 22 lecture on the life and contributions of Nobel Prize winner and MTSU alumnus James M. Buchanan.

Buchanan, who passed away Jan. 9, was a professor emeritus at George Mason and a leading proponent of public choice theory, which assumes that politicians and government officials are motivated by self-interest. Boudreaux’s visit was sponsored by the Department of Economics, the Economics Club and the University Honors College, which awards the James Buchanan Fellowship to 20 undergraduate applicants each year in his honor.
