Next Call to Action

Once the current 'call' is over, we can focus on any number of topics. Here are some possibilities:

Objectivism Wiki, courtesy of David Veksler, can be mined for useful material (it is public domain, too). Most content is specific to Objectivism, but some may be useful:

The One Minute Case is a bunch of blog posts David Veksler wrote (also public domain). They would make excellent Argumentation pages (see ex. here).

Mises Made Easier is a nice little resource that is ideal to base stubs on. The task would be to go through the list and pick the more interesting/relevant ones and... make the stubs.

Good stuff! Pestergaines 12:02, 16 September 2011 (MSD)

Another suggestion for the next time:
Austrians were right a.k.a. Navel-Gazing Time - gather instances of Austrians predicting important economic and other developments. Pestergaines 12:56, 11 November 2011 (MSK)


I'm still not clear what "take apart book X" means. You added "to get more examples", but what exactly would one have to do before this task can be considered "done"? How do we know this isn't already done?

If this is just a suggestion for where to get more ideas, it may be better placed in a section for that...as opposed to be being labeled as something to be completed. --John James 08:32, 14 October 2011 (MSD)

Sorry, I should have been clearer. It's what I did with Against Intellectual Property - read through the book and use the most useful bits - which may involve jumping to other articles and studies, etc. I'm still somewhere around the beginning of the book due to combing through other resources as well... I'll set it as done when I'm done with it - unless somebody wants to step in and take that over. :) Pestergaines 13:25, 14 October 2011 (MSD)

Next topic

As the next project, I'd like to pick the Austrians were right a.k.a. Navel-Gazing Time page - gathering instances of Austrians predicting important economic and other developments. It would be a single major page (with outliers on other key pages).

However, it occurs to me that it might just use a better name than "Austrians were right". Ideas? :) Pestergaines 01:42, 24 November 2011 (MSK)

Another idea for later on: make a page for all or most of economists from the List of Austrian School economists. Pestergaines 01:46, 13 December 2011 (MSK)

Free market

Some day it may be interesting to gather a large bunch of examples of a free market in action. Here's one resource to start off with. Pestergaines (talk) 10:24, 10 August 2012 (MSD)

Robber barons

A small topic could be robber barons. Here's a list to start with. Pestergaines (talk) 21:24, 6 February 2013 (MSK)

Coming along: Robber barons. Pestergaines (talk) 02:03, 24 May 2013 (MSD)

Notable libertarians

One day it would be useful to have an extensive list of libertarian thinkers, along with some biographical details, works, etc. This book would be a good start in that direction. Pestergaines (talk) 10:59, 3 August 2013 (MSD)
