The Journal of Peace, Prosperity and Freedom is an academic journal that treads a similar path as the Congressman, in the sense that it tries to promote understandings that will bring about greater amounts of peace, prosperity and freedom. It seeks to advance, in a non-partisan fashion, research that contributes to this objective. This means the journal is necessarily interdisciplinary in its scope, covering virtually all the social sciences and is open to any article that is within its broad mandate.
That said, the journal has a particular affinity for the ideas associated with the Austrian School of economics and libertarian political philosophy. Using the latest insights from Austrian economics and libertarianism, the journal seeks to cultivate scholarship which applies to current events in Australia and around the world. In the process it will inject new ways of looking at public policy debates and encourage more rational thinking by publishing cutting edge papers that go beyond traditional mainstream perspectives.
Although the ideas we hope to cultivate are located within a specific school of thought – mainly associated with Ludwig von Mises and his followers F.A. Hayek and Murray Rothbard – I strive to encourage discussion and debate of opposing perspectives. Papers from opposing viewpoints will not be excluded and in some cases will be actively solicited.
