- Joseph Salerno
In an autobiographical essay, Salerno describes his parents as "first generation
Italian-Americans." Salerno says that after witnessing his " New DealDemocrat" father's disdain for a relative who declared himself a communist,
:"I quickly became an ardent anti-Communist but knew little else about politics or political philosophy until
Barry Goldwaterbegan to campaign for the Republican nomination for President when I was 13 years old. His firebrand anti-Communism greatly appealed to me at the time and after reading an article about him in Life Magazinein late 1963, I became aware of the conservative-liberal political spectrum and immediately proclaimed myself a conservative, much to my father’s chagrin." Salerno, Joseph. "It Usually Ends With Murray Rothbard." " LewRockwell.com". 23 June 2005. [http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig6/salerno1.html] ]
It was while he was a
high schoolstudent that Salerno read Goldwater's " Conscience of a Conservative" as well as Ayn Rand's "Anthem" and " Atlas Shrugged" and determined that he wanted to study economics. In 1968, Salerno began his freshman year at Boston College. While attending Boston Collegeas an undergraduate, Salerno encountered an article written by Murray Rothbardand was converted to what Salerno describes as "the pure libertarianposition... anarchocapitalism." It was this experience that Salerno credits with piquing his interest in the Austrian School.
Upon his graduation from Boston College in 1972, Salerno enrolled in the graduate economics program at
Rutgers Universityfrom which he received his M.A. in 1976 and his Ph.D. in 1980. Salerno was one of a handful of economists to attend the seminal June 1974 Austrian economics conference in South Royalton, Vermont.

Praise of Hans Sennholz
He has notably praised
Hans Sennholzas an under-appreciated member of the Austrian School who,
:"...writes so clearly on such a broad range of topics that he is in danger of suffering the same fate as Say and
Bastiat. As Joseph Schumpeterpointed out, these two brilliant nineteenth-century French economists, who were also masters of economic rhetoric, wrote with such clarity and style that their work was misjudged by their British inferiors as "shallow" and "superficial." [Salerno, Joseph. "Hans Sennholz, Teacher and Theorist." "Mises.org". 3 February 2003. [http://www.mises.org/story/1155] ]
