In Honor of:

Ludwig Mises

September 29th, 1881 – October 10, 1973

“He was the greatest economist of his generation.” ~ Henry Hazlitt

“To none of us young men who read the book when it appeared was the world ever the same again.” ~ F. A. Hayek, on Mises’s book Socialism

“Mr. von Mises believed in choice. He believed that choosing among options determines all human decisions and hence the entire sphere of human action… While man could destroy himself and civilization, he could also ascend — in a free society, i.e., a free economy — to undreamed-of cultural, intellectual and technological heights.” ~ The Wall Street Journal

“In front of every socialist Ministry of Planning, there should be a statue of Ludwig von Mises.” ~ Oskar Lange

“As far as my economics and political economy are concerned, Ludwig von Mises is the most important thing that’s ever happened to me.” ~ Ayn Rand

“Mises was right.” ~ Robert Heilbroner, The New Yorker (1990)

“It is difficult to conceive of any person in our time who has given the world so much, yet been rewarded so little in return.” ~ Robert Bidinotto

“Mises and Hayek , together with Michael Polanyi in more recent years, have had the greatest influence on my thinking.”
“I vividly recall the first two life-changing books I came across: F.A Harper’s Why Wages Rise and Ludwig von Mises’s Human Action… Mises showed in unparalleled depth and scope that a free society based on scrupulous respect for private property, the consistent rule of law, and the right to freely exchange coogs and service is the system most conducive to human well-being, progress, civility, and peace.” ~ Charles Koch

“A deep understanding of the Austrian economic school is a tremendous competitive advantage in making long-term economic decisions. (You should read Human Action by Ludwig von Mises.)” ~ John Allison
