Although Austrian economists do a lot of teaching and public writing, a vital part of their activity is spreading ideas through scholarly research. Research is not just the way we add to the body of knowledge left by previous generations, but is also an effective means of engaging and challenging the ideas of mainstream economics (especially through books and peer-reviewed journal articles).

A number of my fellow bloggers are productive researchers who regularly publish in economics and other disciplines. If you want to catch up on what they’ve been doing, below is a list of books and articles published by Mises Institute bloggers during 2014. Most of the links are ungated, and apologies to my colleagues if I’ve left any of their writings out.

I’d also like to congratulate Nicolai Foss and Peter Klein for receiving an award for their 2012 book Organizing Entrepreneurial Judgment: A New Approach to the Firm!
