Remember: George Alexander Duncan, 1902–2005

The Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics


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.

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.
