Happy Birthday, Ludwig von Mises!

Today, it is exactly 130 years since the greatest economist of the 20th century (and perhaps of all time) Ludwig von Mises was born. Let’s hope that in the heaven of economists where he has gone, the free and unhampered market economy is not just an imaginary construction, but reality.
If you haven’t already read it, take a look at George Reisman’s homage to Mises, Ludwig von Mises: Defender of Capitalism.
There is also a long essay by Murray Rothbard on Mises’ life and achievements on the Mises Institutes’s web site: Ludwig von Mises: Scholar, Creator, Hero.
