The Mises Institute, founded in 1982, is an educational institution devoted to advancing Austrian economics, freedom, and peace in the classical-liberal tradition. Our website offers many thousands of free books and thousands of hours of audio and video, along with the full run of rare journals, biographies, and bibliographies of great economists.
 
Muse and Hearth is a podcast for Christian women who want to extend the ideas behind classical education and the Great Books tradition into all of life. Too often we leave the intellectual rigor of the liberal arts in the towers of academia, or in the textbooks. But what if we as women, as wives, as mothers, made that intellectual tradition a part of our own habits and our family culture?

On the E4B podcast #117, he…
 
The US has millions of idle workers. In a normal economy this would put a damper on demand. But in our money-printing economy, consumer demand is surging even as production falls behind. An employment bubble is the result. Original Article: https://mises.org/wire/how-trillions-newly-printed-money-created-labor-shortageThis Audio Mises Wire is gener…
 
What does it mean to have luck? Good luck, or bad? Is luck something that only happens selectively, or is our entire existence a kind of luck that we've had zero control over? And if that's true - what does it mean for our society? What does it say about our educational system, our criminal justice system, and how we treat and empathize with each o…
 
Do huge wealth redistribution schemes like Biden's new plan actually make people better off? Some people will get a net benefit. How how numerous are they? How many millions will take a net loss?

Now that the average American voter is barely paying attention—and that the US is facing an economic crisis and weak recovery—it has become politically expedient to move further toward wrapping up a couple more lost wars.

Representative democracy cannot subsist if a great part of the voters are on the government payroll.

America's "Old Right"—rooted in 19th century liberalism but birthed in the 1930s to oppose the New Deal—was strongly laissez-faire and non-interventionist. Murray Rothbard wrote the comprehensive story of that movement, it's influences and influence, and its destruction at the hands of Buckleyite Cold Warriorism. Modern conservatism sadly bears lit…
 
People must still compete for resources in a socialist economy. In fact, the competition is intense.

Jason Stanley's book on fascism is a jumbled mess which seems primarily to exist for the purpose of smearing everything Stanley doesn't like with the label of "fascism."

We can gain useful insights by winding business models back in time to see how they emerged and evolved. In the case of competing business models, we can analyze the different outcomes and perhaps assign some cause and effect analysis to interpret why one model variant performed better than another. How do we do that? Through the technique of entre…

Rothbard called Mises's The Theory of Money and Credit "the best book on money ever written."

How do we define our "tribes"? That's a word that gets thrown around a lot these days - political tribes, ideological tribes, religious tribes, national tribes... it's just tribalism all the way down. Tribalism, factionalism - whatever you want to call "strong loyalty to one's own social group" - has been with us forever, and we'll never be rid of …

Profit-seeking entrepreneurs move factors of production to their highest and most economical uses.

Politics degrades our lives in innumerable ways, from personal relationships to work to places of worship. Even sports and movies now seem to have become deeply politicized.

How often do you think about how you access the internet? Not in the general sense, but the actual act of accessing it: the descriptive text you read underneath an item for sale, the buttons you click or tap to signal an intent or complete an action, or an input field to type a credit card number, select a country or state, or scroll through a set …

Ryan McMaken joins the show for a lengthy discussion of Rothbard's brief but devastating essay Anatomy of the State.

Jeff Deist comments on the latest Democrat agenda of increasing the number of judges in SCOTUS. Does the expansion bill stand any chance in the house?
