Abstract

Roger Garrison has played a key role in advancing ideas in Austrian macroeconomics throughout his career. As contributors to this symposium, we discuss a number of “Garrisonian wisdoms” that have provided important lessons for economists in navigating a “middle ground” and seeking professional advancement within academic economics. Taken together, Garrison’s lessons reveal how one can successfully build and sustain an academic career while staying committed to the advancement and further development of the intellectual tradition of the Austrian School of Economics.
