Peter Boettke discusses an essay written by him, "Teaching Austrian Economics to Graduate Students". This paper was selected by the Dallas Federal Reserve in 2003, in a conference to honor Milton Friedman. Boettke uses this essay as a guide while explaining different techniques that can be applied in teaching and stresses that the fundamental role of economics professors is to show their students to appreciate the discipline of economics, so they can become informed participants in the real life's democratic process. He explains why it is important for educators to understand their students, in order to decide if the group would be more interested in an economics or a philosophical point of view, regarding the Austrian economy. Boettke believes that striving to work with the best minds and accepting criticism from peers will allow greater learning and to broaden knowledge.
