From Theory to Reality: Barriers Confronting Libertarians

The Journal of Libertarian Studies

Classical Liberalism, especially of the Austrian inclination, and Libertarianism are by now recognized as the most influential research traditions of our time. While it would be superfluous here to repeat the reasons for such widespread significance, it should not be overlooked that, so far, the significance of these traditions has been recognized mainly in the academic world. There are numerous countries in which these ideas have yet to achieve the impact we wish for on public opinion and the electorate at large.

What is the Mises Institute?

The Mises Institute is a non-profit organization that 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. 

Non-political, non-partisan, and non-PC, we advocate a radical shift in the intellectual climate, away from statism and toward a private property order. 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.
