Mises as Applied Economist
Richard Ebeling has served as the editor of a Liberty Fund project dealing with Mises's Selected Writings. There are 3 volumes in the set. Vol. 1 has just been released to complete the set. Ebeling's work on these volumes is a major contribution to the scholarship of the Austrian school of economics, and to Misesian economics in particular.
Monetary and Economic Policy Problems Before, During, and
After the Great War
By Ludwig von Mises
Edited by Richard Ebeling
The present volume is devoted to some of Mises's earliest writings. As with the second volume in the series, the articles that compose this book include Mises's policy memoranda, essays, and speeches that were found in a formerly secret KGB archive in Moscow. The articles have two primary focuses: First, they reveal Mises's thoughts on the monetary, fiscal, and general economic policy problems of the Austro-Hungarian Empire before and during World War I; and second, they focus on his thoughts on the new postwar Austrian Republic after the dismantling of the Habsburg monarchy.
An appendix to the volume includes a curriculum vitae that Mises's great-grandfather prepared for the Habsburg emperor in 1881 as part of his ennoblement, which gave him and his heirs the hereditary title of "Edler von." Also included is a talk that Mises delivered at his private seminar in his office in the Vienna Chamber of Commerce in the spring of 1934 on the topic of the methodology of the social sciences.
For those who may be familiar with Mises's more theoretical works on various themes of monetary theory and policy - capitalism, socialism, interventionism, market economy, and the like - the general nature and workings of the articles found in this volume offer a different perspective on Mises as an applied economist.
Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) was the leading spokesman of the Austrian School of economics throughout most of the twentieth century. He earned his doctorate in law and economics from the University of Vienna in 1906. In 1926, Mises founded the Austrian Institute for Business Cycle Research. From 1909 to 1934, he was an economist for the Vienna Chamber of Commerce. Before theAnschluss, in 1934 Mises left for Geneva, where he was a professor at the Graduate Institute of International Studies until 1940, when he emigrated to New York City. From 1948 to 1969, he was a visiting professor at New York University.
