In November 13 and 14 took place the Eighth International Conference "The Austrian School of Economics in the 21st Century" in Vienna. It was organized by the Bases International Foundation, Austrian Economic Center, and the Hayek Institute.
My brother (Adrián Ravier) and I have participated by offering a conference each, but we also had the opportunity to meet the University of Vienna and remember the great Austrian thinkers who were an important part of the tradition of the Austrian School of Economics, such as Carl Menger, Eugen Böhm von Bawerk (Ludwig von Mises's teacher) and Friedrich August von Hayek (novel economics award).
The congress took place at the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB), where I offered the conference entitled "A Redefinition of the Entrepreneurial Function Concept". This was the abstract:
Within the Austrian school of economics, the concept of entrepreneurial function has been evolving and improving, to the point of requiring a redefinition that better responds to the current state of its meaning. In this work, the entrepreneurial function concept is presented as the human ability to associate and/or combine ideas and/or matter (creativity) under the general principles of law, which has coordinating effects on society and/or markets. Simultaneously, the entrepreneurial function is distinguished from coercive function, in that both are exercised in an uncertain environment and have a creative essence, but the coercive function is uncoordinating.

At the end of the congress, I had the opportunity to participate in the gala dinner at "Palais Liechtenstein" where the "2019 Hayek Lifetime Achievement Award Gala" was given to Tom Woods in recognition of his work in defense of freedom.
In the same event I shared a table with Bob Murphy, and with both I had the opportunity to take a photo in memory of this extraordinary event in Vienna.
