That's Pete Boettke commemorating the teaching career of PERC's very own P.J. Hill, who is retiring from teaching at Wheaton College this week. Here is an excellent tribute to Prof. Hill written by a former student.
There are a few very special teachers of economics. Paul Heyne was one. Ken Elzinga is another. And PJ Hill is another.
In honor of P.J.'s celebrated teaching career, here are some of P.J. Hill-related readings:
- The Not So Wild, Wild West: Property Rights on the Frontier -- a fascinating book by Hill and Terry Anderson on order in the Wild West.
- Morality and Capitalism -- an interview with P.J. Hill by Nick Schultz.
- Cowboys and Contracts -- building on Demsetz's work on property rights with a focus on the frontier.
- Re-run: "The Not So Wild, Wild West" -- P.J. reflects on earlier work on property rights in the early West.
