Meet The Team
Originally from Turin, I am currently enrolled for my third-year student of International Economics and Finance major in Economics at Bocconi University. Radical libertarian, I have made mine Milton Friedman’s words “A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will end up with a high degree of both”.
Augusto De Bellis
Born in Taranto, I’m currently enrolled for my second year of the undergraduate program Bachelor in International Economics and Finance (major in Finance). Great supporter of political and individual freedoms, deeply interested in its various applications in the world of Finance. I also really enjoy history, running and coding.
Born and raised in New York City, I am in my second year of the International Economics and Management program at Bocconi. As a libertarian, I am a staunch believer in individual liberty and minimal domestic government interference. I am particularly interested in diplomacy and economic development. On a personal note, I love to cook and run.
Born and raised in the Czech Republic and having lived in 5 countries, I am a first-year MSc Accounting, Financial Management & Control student at Bocconi. I am deeply concerned about the current political situation in Eastern Europe, and probably use Milton Friedman's quote “The government solution to a problem is usually as bad as the problem” way too much. In my free time, I enjoy skiing, reading, and watching the NHL.
Eduardo David Dana
Born in Switzerland, but living my whole life in the US, I am a first-year International Economics and Management student here at Bocconi. For the most part, I believe in traditional values, a limited government, and low taxes. In my free time, I enjoy working out, watching Suits, and listening to Ben Shapiro talk really fast.
Born in Belluno, a small town at the foot of the Dolomites, I am currently enrolled for my fourth year of Law at Bocconi University. I am interested in political freedoms and individual autonomy, with special regard to their implementation in the EU, and AI. I dream of working for the EU and contributing to its global relevance.
Economics, Politics and Liberalism
From Bologna, I am currently enrolled in the second year of the DES-ESS course. I consider myself a classical liberal, but what I have always enjoyed about Friedman Society is the diversity of opinions you will find in the broader world of liberalism. My main interests are historical processes, monetary policy, global trade, and the economics of energy resources.
Raised in Germany's financial capital, Anton spent plenty of his time wondering about how to successfully build and manage a business. In his father he found a mentor who amplified these interests and guided him through the ideological aspects of economics using extensive examples from his studies under Merton Miller and Eugene Fama.
