Human Action: The Antidote to Progressivism

Joe Salerno at the Human Action Conference, 2024
Joseph T. Salerno

Human Action is the foundational work of modern Austrian economics, and that is reason enough for reading it. But there is an equally compelling reason for carefully studying Mises’s great treatise. For it is the antidote to the real and immediate threat to human liberty and society, represented by the prevailing social philosophy of progressivism.”

Presented at the 2024 Human Action Conference on Friday, 17 May 2024, at the Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama.
