Human Action Conference 2024

Students apply for a scholarship here.
"Once in a great while, a book appears that both embodies and dramatically extends centuries of accumulated wisdom in a particular discipline, and, at the same time, radically challenges the intellectual and political consensus of the day. Human Action by Ludwig von Mises is such a book, and more: a comprehensive treatise on economic science that would lay the foundation for a massive shift in intellectual opinion that is still working itself out fifty years after publication."
So begins the introduction to the 1998 scholar’s edition of Mises’s Human Action, written by Jeffrey Herbener, Hans-Hermann Hoppe, and Joseph Salerno. These words still ring true today.

Selections from The End of the Dollar Era

Government-Managed Digital Currency: A Further Threat to Our Freedom
by Paul Gottfried
Whatever the modern self-described liberal democratic administrative state claims to be doing in the name of disadvantaged people is intended primarily and perhaps exclusively to increase government control. Further, whenever the same regime purports to be making our lives more comfortable, more agreeable, we may assume that our freedom and property rights are under assault.
Therefore, when I read about an executive order issued by the Biden administration last year regarding a plan for digital currency, I naturally suspected something quite dire.
The attempt to present central bank digital currencies (CBDC) as a courtesy that the state will be providing grateful citizens is patent nonsense. The

Get Your Free Booklet by Joe Salerno!

There has been a radical change in the social and political landscape in this country, and any person who desires the victory of liberty and the defeat of Leviathan must adjust his strategy accordingly. New times require a rethinking of old and possibly obsolete strategies.–Murray N. Rothbard
Murray Rothbard wasn’t only a brilliant economist, historian, and political philosopher; he was a man driven to defend the cause of liberty against the authoritarian threats of his age. He frequently wrote on strategy, applying his keen intellect to unraveling the greatest dangers of the time.
In The Progressive Road to Socialism, Joseph Salerno builds upon Rothbard’s work to expose the threat of modern progressivism, which seeks “to combine socialism with the appealing virtues of ‘democracy’ and

Three Cheers for Mises

Today marks the birthday of Ludwig von Mises, and day 5 of our annual Fall Campaign.
The intellectual achievements of Ludwig von Mises make him one of the greatest minds in human history. His contributions to Austrian economics inspired new generations of scholars, from Murray Rothbard and F.A. Hayek to current leaders like Joe Salerno, Ron Paul, and Patrick Newman. He is the most powerful intellectual opponent to socialism the world has ever known, and his work on money and credit remains essential to understanding the corruption of the modern economy. Thanks to our generous donors, the Mises Institute continues to publish his great works, inspiring generations of freedom champions around the world, from the United States to China, from Eastern Europe to South America.

Donate $5, Get Rothbard’s Greatest Myths!

Rothbard destroys the greatest myths of our time.
America has been captured by economic denialism. The political class has driven the debt to a point that was once thought unimaginable. Inflation continues to eat away at the paychecks of everyone. The weaponization of the dollar has driven other countries to seek to abandon it.
In 1984, Murray Rothbard wrote Ten Great Economic Myths, a succinct attack on the fallacies perpetrated by the politicization of the economy. The political agenda continues to seep into all facets of our lives and needs to be unmasked. With your donation today, you will receive a copy of this Rothbard classic.
The power of Ten Great Economic Myths is in its brevity. It is short and to the point. The timeless wisdom will sharpen the skills of the most veteran reader

Our Fall Campaign Starts Today!

The mission of the Mises Institute is simple. We want to spread the ideas of Ludwig von Mises and the scholars he inspired. Ideas that are vital for a free and prosperous civilization.
We do this through our student programs, our popular articles, our podcasts, one of the largest free economic libraries available online, and our new animated videos for beginners.
Online and in person, we attack the state, the political class, and their crony clients—without exception and without apology. We reach more people than some DC organizations with ten times our budget. Now our mission of education is more important than ever.
Unfortunately, just as Ludwig von Mises was attacked by the Left, the Right, and even his own fellow libertarians for his “intransigence” in defense of free markets, we are

The White House, the Fed, and the Economy: Mises Circle in Fort Myers, FL

Every day, Americans feel the political capture of the economy. Inflation, taxes, and regulatory costs hit our paychecks and savings. The regulatory capture of medical industries; food and energy production; and the various instruments of Big Tech empowers the regime with new tools to promote their latest ideological cause. The ever-growing burden of government debt has become a crisis without any political will to address it.
This November, the Mises Institute will be in Fort Myers, Florida, to cut through the campaign talking points and offer an uncompromising look at what is coming next. Speakers include Bob Murphy, Patrick Newman, Jonathan Newman, and Murray Sabrin. Join fellow travelers from around Florida and beyond for a dose of sanity before we hit the peak of the 2024 political

Against Our Limitless Regime: An Empire of Lies

From war across the globe to regulating speech to printing trillions of dollars, the American regime accepts no limits on its power. As Ludwig von Mises understood, the state will take as much power as the people will let it, and in recent years the American regime has clearly concluded it can get away with unilaterally adopting vast new powers.
Join the Mises Institute in Nashville on September 23rd for an event inspired by this siege of power and one of Ron Paul’s favorite lines: truth is treason in the empire of lies.
We will be joined by a group of brave speakers who have dedicated their careers to rejecting the regime’s propaganda at personal cost: Ted Galen Carpenter, Michael Rectenwald, Karen Kwiatkowski, and Jonathan Newman. Carpenter will cover the national security state’s global

Join Us for the Medical Freedom Summit!

The tyrannical threat of the biomedical security state is ever present.
While those that cheered for lockdowns, vaccine mandates, and the shutdown of the global economy retreat to the back pages of the news, the World Health Organization and their ilk are already gearing up for the next crisis. The covid scare may have lost its political potency, but you can be sure that "public health emergencies" will continue to be a powerful tool for future control.
Join us for a Medical Freedom Summit featuring two brave leaders in the fight against medical tyranny.
Dr. Peter McCullough is one of the most respected truth tellers in the profession, making him a frequent target of censorship from regime-controlled traditional and social media. One of America’s most published cardiologists, Dr.

Myth #7: Deflation — Falling Prices — Is Unthinkable, and Would Cause a Catastrophic Depression

Recorded by the Mises Institute in the mid-1980s, The Mises Report provided radio commentary from leading non-interventionists, economists, and political scientists. In this program, we present another part of "Ten Great Economic Myths". This material was prepared by Murray N. Rothbard.

The public memory is short. We forget that, from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the mid-18th century until the beginning of World War II, prices generally went down, year after year. That’s because continually increasing productivity and output of goods generated by free markets caused prices to fall. There was no depression, however, because costs fell along with selling prices. Usually, wage rates remained constant while the cost of living fell, so that "real" wages, or everyone’s

Myth #6: There Is a Tradeoff between Unemployment and Inflation

Recorded by the Mises Institute in the mid-1980s, The Mises Report provided radio commentary from leading non-interventionists, economists, and political scientists. In this program, we present another part of "Ten Great Economic Myths". This material was prepared by Murray N. Rothbard.

Every time someone calls for the government to abandon its inflationary policies, Establishment economists and politicians warn that the result can only be severe unemployment. We are trapped, therefore, into playing off inflation against high unemployment, and become persuaded that we must therefore accept some of both.
This doctrine is the fallback position for Keynesians. Originally, the Keynesians promised us that by manipulating and fine-tuning deficits and government spending, they could and

Myth #5: Economists, Using Charts or High Speed Computer Models, Can Accurately Forecast the Future

Recorded by the Mises Institute in the mid-1980s, The Mises Report provided radio commentary from leading non-interventionists, economists, and political scientists. In this program, we present another part of "Ten Great Economic Myths". This material was prepared by Murray N. Rothbard.

The problem of forecasting interest rates illustrates the pitfalls of forecasting in general. People are contrary cusses whose behavior, thank goodness, cannot be forecast precisely in advance. Their values, ideas, expectations, and knowledge change all the time, and change in an unpredictable manner. What economist, for example, could have forecast (or did forecast) the Cabbage Patch Kid craze of the Christmas season of 1983? Every economic quantity, every price, purchase, or income figure is the

Myth #4: Every Time the Fed Tightens the Money Supply, Interest Rates Rise (Or Fall)

Recorded by the Mises Institute in the mid-1980s, The Mises Report provided radio commentary from leading non-interventionists, economists, and political scientists. In this program, we present another part of "Ten Great Economic Myths". This material was prepared by Murray N. Rothbard.

The financial press now knows enough economics to watch weekly money supply figures like hawks; but they inevitably interpret these figures in a chaotic fashion. If the money supply rises, this is interpreted as lowering interest rates and inflationary; it is also interpreted, often in the very same article, as raising interest rates. And vice versa. If the Fed tightens the growth of money, it is interpreted as both raising interest rates and lowering them. Sometimes it seems that all Fed actions,

Myth #3: Tax Increases Are a Cure for Deficits

Recorded by the Mises Institute in the mid-1980s, The Mises Report provided radio commentary from leading non-interventionists, economists, and political scientists. In this program, we present another part of "Ten Great Economic Myths". This material was prepared by Murray N. Rothbard.

Those people who are properly worried about the deficit unfortunately offer an unacceptable solution: increasing taxes. Curing deficits by raising taxes is equivalent to curing someone’s bronchitis by shooting him. The "cure" is far worse than the disease.
For one reason, as many critics have pointed out, raising taxes simply gives the government more money, and so the politicians and bureaucrats are likely to react by raising expenditures still further. Parkinson said it all in his famous "Law":

Myth #2: Deficits Do Not Have a Crowding-Out Effect on Private Investment

Recorded by the Mises Institute in the mid-1980s, The Mises Report provided radio commentary from leading non-interventionists, economists, and political scientists. In this program, we present another part of "Ten Great Economic Myths". This material was prepared by Murray N. Rothbard.

In recent years there has been an understandable worry over the low rate of saving and investment in the United States. One worry is that the enormous federal deficits will divert savings to unproductive government spending and thereby crowd out productive investment, generating ever, greater long-run problems in advancing or even maintaining the living standards of the public.
Some policymakers have once again attempted to rebut this charge by statistics. In 1982–83, they declare, deficits were

Myth #1: Deficits Are the Cause of Inflation; Deficits Have Nothing to Do With Inflation

Recorded by the Mises Institute in the mid-1980s, The Mises Report provided radio commentary from leading non-interventionists, economists, and political scientists. In this program, we present another part of "Ten Great Economic Myths". This material was prepared by Murray N. Rothbard.

In recent decades we always have had federal deficits. The invariable response of the party out of power, whichever it may be, is to denounce those deficits as being the cause of our chronic inflation. And the invariable response of whatever party is in power has been to claim that deficits have nothing to do with inflation. Both opposing statements are myths.
Deficits mean that the federal government is spending more than it is taking in in taxes. Those deficits can be financed in two ways. If

Property, Civilization, and Culture: Mises in Reno

"The foundation of any and every civilization, including our own, is private ownership of the means of production. Whoever wishes to criticize modern civilization, therefore, begins with private property." — Ludwig von Mises
Every day, more and more Americans are awakening to the reality that the institutions in control of this nation are failing them. From violence in the streets, inflation in our stores, increasing tyranny and censorship, and absolute buffoonery on public display in halls of political power. The ruling class is getting richer while most of us suffer, and new generations are becoming increasingly warped by the dangerous ideologies of the left.

The Great Reset: Mises in Birmingham

Students apply for an admission scholarship here.
In recent years, Americans have suffered from the horrors of covid tyranny, government-directed corporate censorship, and now our current banking crisis. The global elite have never been more obvious in their intentions for the greater control over society. Their aim is further consolidation of power and wealth into the hands of radical ideologues and to transform almost every aspect of human society. 
They are not subtle in their ambition. They call it The Great Reset.
