Relevance as a Virtue in Economics

The Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics


Volume 5, No. 4 (Winter 2002)


Dr. Sennholz, successfully blended his knowledge of the science of economics with a deep commitment to the moral principles governing a society of free and responsible individuals. To those students who were open, Dr. Sennholz’s message was transformative. As the history of the Austrian School in the mid-to late-twentieth century is written, the contributions of Dr. Hans Sennholz as a teacher and popular writer must be accounted for as well. He provided scores of young people with the opportunity to learn the teachings of the Austrian School of Economics at a time when Mises’s name was no longer recognized by economists.

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.
