What is Freedom Fest?

FreedomFest is an annual festival where “free minds meet” to celebrate “great books, great ideas, and great thinkers” in an open-minded society. It is independent, non-partisan, and not affiliated with any organization or think tank.

Founded and produced by Mark Skousen since 2002, FreedomFest invites the “best and the brightest” from around the world to talk, strategize, socialize, and celebrate liberty. FreedomFest is open to all and is purely egalitarian, where speakers, attendees, and exhibitors are treated as equals.

“The Best & the Brightest” Meet Annually in the World’s Most Libertarian City – Las Vegas.

Who should attend FreedomFest? It’s open to anyone who enjoys a wide interest in books, art, music, film, and drama in all topics, including science, philosophy, economics, health, sports, technology, business, religion, law, and politics. FreedomFest attracts people of all walks of life and across the political spectrum to learn, debate and honor great books, great ideas, and great thinkers.

What does A.E.I.O.U stand for?

A.E.I.O.U. comes from the tombstone of Frederick III, the first Hapsburg emperor. Many believe it is Latin or German for “Austria will rule the world.” For me, it means, “Austrian Economics Is Overall Universal.” I write about this in my book, “Austrian Economics for Investors” (Laissez Faire Books, 800-326-0996, $12) and mention it in my newsletter, Forecasts & Strategies, on occasion.
