Beschreibung

Austrian Economics 150 Years after Carl Menger brings together essays by distinguished scholars from around the world to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the publication of Austrian School founder Carl Menger’s Principles of Economics. Based on the Tenth International Conference of “The Austrian School of Economics in the 21st Century”, held on 4-5 November 2021 in Vienna, Austria, this volume includes the latest research on Austrian Economics, highlighting especially the scholarship produced in Continental Europe and Latin America, complemented by chapters addressing the most pressing issues of our time, from monetary policy in the European Union, to populism, to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. New light is also shed on matters of perennial importance, such as the calculation debate, inflation, debt, and the classical liberal tradition. This volume is invaluable for academics, policymakers, and businesspeople who wish to familiarize themselves with the most up-to-date research currently conducted by leading experts in the Austrian School of Economics.
