My introduction to Austrian ideas was Hayek under the guidance of Fred Glahe. Hayek led me to Mises and Rothbard. It was Mises, much more than Hayek, that enhanced my understanding of real world economics. When I first began my own intellectual journey, it required diligence and luck to develop a library of the important contributions of the leaders in Austrian thought. Now thanks to the Mises Institute it is easier and easier to share the insights of these intellectual, Mises, Hayek, and Rothbard, Salerno etc. with students, the public at large and “professional” economists.
To help make sure the Mises legacy continues to expand over the next 40 years do as I have done; donate to update and improve this important webpage.
