Ludwig von Mises Institute

U.S.A. - The Ludwig von Mises Institute is the research and educational center of classical liberalism, libertarian political theory, and the Austrian School of economics. The institute was founded by "anti-state, anti-war, pro-market" Llewellyn H. Rockwell in 1982. The institute has had the support of Margit von Mises, who chaired the board until her death in 1993, and such giants as F.A. Hayek, Lawrence Fertig, Henry Hazlitt, and Murray N. Rothbard, who headed its academic programs until his death in 1995. The institute says that it "...has grown into the leading scholarly center for research and teaching in the Austrian School of economics, as well as an important research center for classical liberalism and libertarianism." The "as well as" is important, because Ludwig von Mises was not, in his day, considered to be a libertarian (it was not a term then commonly used to refer to Capitalists of the day), and it could be argued that Mises would not have embraced libertarianism today (for example, its rejection of a moral code). That said, his economic ideas are cherished by some libertarians, and have seriously influenced the economic views of founder Lew Rockwell and Anarcho-Capitalist spearhead Murray Rothbard, both of whom are properly referred to as libertarians.

The Ludwig von Mises has taken over responsibility for publishing the Journal of Libertarian Studies. The journal is edited by anarcho-capitalist/libertarian Professor Hans-Hermann Hoppe.

It adds that "through Reason Magazine, with its growing and increasingly influential audience, we shape public opinion in favor of individual liberty in all areas of human activity."



Libertarian Party

Comprised of both Anarcho-Capitalists and Minarchists, the party's commitment to free-market economics renders it incompatible with collectivist libertarianism.
