"The flowering of human society depends on two factors: intellectual power of outstanding men to conceive sound social and economic theories, and the ability of these or other men to make these ideologies palatable to the majority." - L. v. Mises, Human Action

This is former Texas Congressman Ron Paul's (very brief) panegyric to the thought of Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises. It is a fairly breezy read, and due to its length Paul only superficially treats Mises' ideas, and where he believes t

O livro é na verdade um curtíssimo ensaio em que Ron Paul conta como Mises e outros autores da Escola Austríaca (EA) influenciaram sua carreira política como defensor da liberdade. O texto é tão curto que não há espaço para grandes explicações de conceito que o próprio autor considera que são essenciais para compreender o legado da EA, como a Teoria do Valor Subjetivo.

De qualquer maneira é um texto que agrada pela perspectiva singular de um libertário que atua no meio político.
A very quick read; At only 23 pages I read it in an afternoon but it is very much worth the time. In very short order Dr. Ron Paul makes a very convincing case for capitalism while lauding the wisdom of his personal hero. As with his other literary works, highly recommended.

This is a real quick overview of Austrian Economics and mention of Ludwig Von Mises' influence on the Statesman Ron Paul. What we need to fix this nation is the clear logic of economics that Austrian Economics offers along with the understanding of individual rights and its source.

This (and Atlas Shrugged) helped form my views on economic policy.
