P20 Biographical Archives


"Ludwig Heinrich Edler von Mises (German: [ˈluːtvɪç fɔn ˈmiːzəs]; 29 September 1881 – 10 October 1973) was a theoretical Austrian School economist. Mises wrote and lectured extensively on behalf of classical liberalism. He is best known for his work on praxeology, a study of human choice and action. Mises emigrated from Austria to the United States in 1940. Since the mid-20th century, the libertarian movement in the United States has been strongly influenced by Mises's writings. Mises's great student, F.A. Hayek, viewed Mises as one of the major figures in the revival of liberalism in the post-war era. Hayek's 1951 work, \"The Transmission of the Ideals of Freedom\" pays high tribute to Mises influence in the twentieth century liberal movement. Mises's Austrian School was a leading group of economists. Many of its alumni, including Friedrich von Hayek and Oskar Morgenstern, emigrated from Austria to the United States and Great Britain. Mises has been described having approximately seventy close students in Austria, and the Austrians as the insiders of Chicago School of economics. The Ludwig von Mises Institute was founded in the United States to continue his teachings." (from Wikipedia)
