I’m on my way back to Vienna after a few -but very fruitful- hours in Skopje (Macedonia). The reason I came to this lovely part of the Balkans is that the International Balkans University in association with the Austrian Economics Center held the “International Roundtable” on March 31st.
The event focused on Austrian Economics, Open Society and the economic and political situation in the Balkans. The speakers were Barbara Kolm, Gunther Fehlinger, Federico N. Fernández, and Violeta Madzova and Mevludin Ibish — both professors at the International Balkan University.
The AEC’s fundamental goal is to promote a free, responsible and prosperous society. Through education and improving public understanding of key economic questions, the AEC promotes the idea of a free market economy and the ideal of a free society.
