D. Brady Nelson
Darren is a liberty entrepreneur and economist with almost two decades of working for/with government regulated businesses, government policy-makers and regulators, and those bodies trying to influence government regulation, taxation and inflation in Australia, UK, USA and New Zealand.
Darren first started down the path, in the late 1980s, of understanding, appreciating and promoting (the politics of) liberty when he took a strong interest in the Reagan and Thatcher administrations (the latter person he was fortunate enough to meet in London in January 2010, and get an autograph from on his Union Jack wallet). The next milestone on this path, in the early 1990s, was his formal studies of (the microeconomics of) liberty, including history of economic thought, especially that of Adam Smith and Milton Friedman. The next milestone, in the mid 1990s to late 2000s, was his work in and around government in terms of competition reforms and regulation implementation, articularly that of so-called ‘natural monopoly’ price regulation.
The most recent milestone over the past several years or so was his rediscovery of the American liberty culture and the Austrian School of economics (microeconomics, macroeconomics and ethics), especially the thinking of Ludwig von Mises and Murray Rothbard.
