Caplan and Responses

The Mises Institute receives a constant stream of correspondence from around the world, and in this one item keeps coming up again and again. People often ask whether there have been any responses to Bryan Caplan’s essay “Why I’m not an Austrian Economist“ (thanks to Google, the version on his personal site is far more widely circulated than the one that appeared in the Southern Economic Journal).

The answer is yes. See

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.
