Steve Mariotti writes in Huffington Post about the discovery of Mises’s personal papers in a Moscow archive. As discussed here, rumors that the Soviets had acquired Mises’s papers from the Nazis after World War II began swirling after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Two German scholars described the papers in a 1993 book, and American economist Richard Ebeling visited the archives in 1996 and brought back copies and a detailed report. Guido Hülsmann relies heavily on the archives in his 2007 biography of Mises. It’s an exciting story, and an indication of Mises’s importance in the eyes of his Nazi and Soviet opponents.
