The Mises Institute exists to promote teaching and research in the Austrian school of economics, and individual freedom, honest history, and international peace, in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Murray N. Rothbard. These great thinkers developed praxeology, a deductive science of human action based on premises known with certainty to be true, and this is what we teach and advocate. Our scholarly work is founded in Misesian praxeology, and in self-conscious opposition to the mathematical modeling and hypothesis-testing that has created so much confusion in neoclassical economics.

    TAGS  Calculation and Knowledge Interventionism Political Theory  Hans-Hermann Hoppe's first treatise in English — actually his first book in English — and the one that put him on the map as a social thinker and economist to watch.

The capitalist model he defines as pure protection of private property, free association, and exchange — no exceptions.
