Volume 9, No. 3 (Fall 2006)


This issue of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics features the debut of a section on “Remembering,” which recognizes the life, career, and achievements of little-known or forgotten  individuals who have made direct or indirect contributions to the advancement of Austrian economics in their capacities as writers, teachers, mentors, translators, or editors. The first to be so  recognized is the Irish economist, George Alexander Duncan, the first professor of political economy at Trinity College Dublin, a lifelong member of the Mont Pelerin Society and a devoted  follower of the Austrian School of economics during the heyday of Keynesianism. Future issues will feature, among others, essays on Ludwig Mai, an expatriate German economist who for many years was an influential college professor in the United States and Patrick James Stirling, the nineteenth-century British translator of Frédéric Bastiat’s works.
