Ludwig von MisesWelcome to the Discover Ludwig von Mises project!

If you've never heard of Mises before, but you've studied some economics (or you just follow the news), you'll need to know that the capitalism that Mises is talking about is different in many ways from that portrayed in the mainstream media. (If you want to argue against Mises, it's as well that you know this so that you're arguing against Mises' actual position rather than what you might assume to be his view.)

A good place to start is this (very!) short biography: Who is Ludwig von Mises?. His classic treatise on economics Human Action is now available on this site (you can find it here).

If you get bogged down in the philosophy, set it aside for a while, kick off your shoes and relax with our Fun Stuff. We're looking for really daft limericks that capture something of the Mises essence.

Discover Ludwig von Mises is an ongoing project. We're continually looking for new ideas, and we welcome any submissions (such as Mises-related articles) that you might be able to help us with. Please, let us know if you want to help in any way.

Enjoy the site!

Silly limericks that tell you absolutely nothing useful about Mises, and they're of no poetic value at all.

Still, it's a laugh.
