Ludwig Heinrich Edler von Mises was an Austrian School economist, historian, and sociologist. He was one of the last members of the original Austrian School of Economics. Mises believed that economic truths are derived from self-evident axioms and cannot be empirically tested. Mises had a strong influence on young people. The resurgent Austrian school in the United States owes itself in no small part to Mises’s persistence.
