Boettke Honored by APEE with the Clark-Kent-Aronoff Service Award

The Mercatus Center at George Mason University is pleased to announce that Vice President Peter J. Boettke is the 2023 recipient of the Association of Private Enterprise Education’s Clark-Kent-Aronoff Service Award. 

Founded in the 1970s, APEE brings together teachers and scholars from colleges and universities, public policy institutes, and industry who share an interest in studying and better understanding the system of private enterprise. Each year since 1992, the Clark-Kent-Aronoff Service Award honors a member of APEE who has continuously contributed to the growth and perpetuation of the organization. Individuals who receive this award have invested their time and talent in efforts to ensure APEE’s continued growth and success.

“Peter Boettke's service to APEE over the last 20 years has been crucial to the growth and success of the organization,” said Ben Powell, Secretary-Treasurer of APEE. “He served in many roles, including as President in 2013-14.  He was also instrumental in funneling Ph.D. students, many of them from George Mason, into the APEE young scholars program in the early 2000s.  Many of the students he connected with the program have gone on to become leaders of APEE themselves.”

Boettke is Vice President at Mercatus and Director of the F. A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. He is also the BB&T Professor for the Study of Capitalism at the Mercatus Center and a University Professor of Economics and Philosophy at George Mason University. He received his PhD in economics from George Mason University.
