Comment: Worth Every Penny!

Worth Every Penny!

I think that it is wonderful that an advocate of liberty like Ron Paul can credibly demand a speaker's fee of $50,000 (hopefully including some book, movie, or TV rights when the time comes) per appearance!

We have come a long way since the shameful days when NYU had to be paid by outside charity to keep on the world-renowned economist and philosopher Ludwig von Mises as a "visiting professor".

In their time F.A. Hayek at the University of Chicago and Murray Rothbard at Brooklyn Polytech were neglected almost as shamefully!

It is WONDERFUL that one of ours has finally made it into a celebrity speaker's circle.

Way to go, Ron Paul!

All our love, and with wishes for...
