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 Free Markets Monopoly and Competition Subjectivism Walter BlockThe true test of our commitment to personal liberty doesn't come when we permit others to engage in those peaceable, voluntary acts with which we agree. It comes when we permit others to engage in peaceable, voluntary acts we find offensive. Walter Block's Defending the Undefendable II contains thirty chapters defending behavior that is probably offensive to most Americans, and many that are downright illegal. This book features a foreword by Ron Paul. Narrated by Patrick Smith.

The Great Economic, Philosophical, & Historical Works of Mankind

Everything released on this podcast is gold (or Bitcoin if you prefer)! The Mises Institute deserves our attention for so many reasons. These masterful scholars are allowing some of the most important knowledge of all time (save the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ) to be disseminated at the cost of your own minuscule trouble of downloading the many free podcast episodes, books, articles, etc. They are saving the Western Civilization we love, and I praise them for their Herculean efforts. I also suggest becoming a regular donor and following their every move. They are truly one of the greatest organizations in existence today. Lew Rockwell will be remembered for many amazing and great accomplishments, but the creation of this institute is easily the greatest among those.

Thought provoking

The Austrian School is bringing back a renewed focus on the basic and elementary blocs at the foundation of the modern (or even post-modern) political economy of the globe. With the onslaught of AI, global climate change and the rise of a plethora or schisms which - we do not yet - whether are permanent features or temporary shocks - as yet, the podcast creates a much needed set of angles and scopes through which to view of the architecture of life and living as we know of. I usually do not write long sentences. But the previous one was necessary for delineating the complexity that is actually associated with the conflicted and oft-contradictory theoretical lenses we are forced to deploy to interpret the practical. A must ‘listen’ for anyone seriously thinking of updating his or her understanding of the many views which make us who we are. The only drawback and a serious one is that it completely overlooks the BoP economies and what we call in Oxford, the “institutional voids”. But discussion of these I shall reserve for a future episode.
