 Our Mission
The Mises Institute exists to promote teaching and research in the Austrian school of economics, individual freedom, honest history, and international peace in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Murray N. Rothbard. Founded in 1982, by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr., with the blessing and aid of Margit von Mises, Murray N. Rothbard, Henry Hazlitt, and Ron Paul, the Institute seeks a free market capitalist economy and a private property order that rejects taxation, monetary debasement, and a coercive state monopoly of protective services.
Non-political, non-partisan, and non-PC, the Institute works with students and scholars from many countries, and reaches out to business leaders, professionals, and everyone else interested in our mission.
Our Principles
Mises developed praxeology, a deductive science of human action based on premises known with certainty to be true, and this is what we teach and advocate. Our scholarly work is founded in Misesian praxeology, and in self-conscious opposition to the mathematical modeling and hypothesis testing that has created so much misdirection in neoclassical economics.
We believe that our foundational ideas are of permanent value and oppose all efforts at compromise, sellout, and amalgamation of these ideas with fashionable political, cultural, and social doctrines inimical to their spirit.
