Bio: Fred loves pro-liberty activism and is also an advocate for healthcare reform towards the free market. He joined the Mises Forum at the University of Bayreuth in Germany during his first semester and enjoyed learning more about human action and monetary policy. He is also a junior-scholar of the Hayek Foundation in Germany, which provides an academic forum for young Austrian Economists and Classical Liberals. Fred also loves to combine his two major passions: Liberty and traveling. Thus you will most likely see him in some spot in Europe, North America or Asia working with libertarian friends there, planning new activism groups or brainstorming about business ideas in emerging markets.
Favorite Figures in Liberty: The writings of Ludwig von Mises helped me a lot to understand many things in the world, but Milton Friedman’s “Free to Choose” and Robert Nozick’s “Anarchy, State and Utopia” were the initial books, which inspired me. Though I am not a big fan of politicians, I would also consider Maggy Thatcher as one of my favorite figures in liberty.
On Students For Liberty: “Best thing ever! No seriously SFL brings so many great people together and provides students all over the world with resources. I know so many people (and I was one of them) who thought that they are the only libertarian in the world and that they are crazy. SFL helps to get in touch with other liberty-minded people and helps them to outreach even more on their campuses.”
