A Hayekian Analysis of the Term Structure of Production

The Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics

Volume 5, No. 2 (Summer 2002)


Empirical analysis and interpretation of employment and interest data based on the Hayekian triangle have proved highly fruitful in revealing new information about the structure of U.S. production. Statistical inference has demonstrated the Hayekian triangle’s strong explanatory power. Demonstration of stable, long-run equilibrium relationships among sectoral employment rates and interest rates indicate the data used are amenable to this kind of analysis.

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.
