A Fairy Tale of the Austrian Movement, by Joseph T. Salerno, Mises Daily, 25 Sep 2007
Review of Brian Doherty's Radicals for Capitalism, in particular of the section in chapter 7 where Peter Boettke discusses Austrian economics
"Boettke's 'us against them' mentality was carried over to graduate school at George Mason University, which had just introduced a heterodox PhD program in economics. ... In 1980, the Kochs allocated substantial funds to set up an Austrian graduate program at GMU. By the mid-1980s, Koch money had built up a set of interlocking organizations at GMU and in Washington D.C. that Doherty (207, pp. 409, 413, 416, 417, 430) himself variously refers to as 'Planet Koch,' 'the Kochtopus,' and 'the Koch/George Mason machine.'"
