Video: The Magnificent Tenacity of Ludwig von Mises

Written by Gary North on July 30, 2016

This is my presentation at Mises University, the week-long conference for undergraduates. It is sponsored yearly by the Ludwig von Mises Institute.

Here, I survey the remarkable legacy of Professor Mises. He hit many brick walls. None of them stopped him except death.

He died on October 10, 1973. It seemed to be the low point in his influence. The following spring, a gathering of about 40 young Austrian School scholars, plus about eight established Austrian instructors, met at South Royalton, Vermont for a week. I was one of them. The story of that conference is here. That fall, Mises’ disciple F. A. Hayek was the co-winner of the Nobel Prize in economics. The great reversal of Austrian economics had begun.

Had Mises not been tenacious, none of this would have happened.
