The Human Action Podcast – Mises, Praxeology and the Method of Economics

Ludwg von Mises

Waarin Ludwig van Mises afweek van veel moderne economen, is dat hij uitging van een set vastliggende axioma’s, en van daaruit verder bouwde.

Dr. Joe Salerno joins Jeff Deist to explore another foundational topic: the method of economics. Mises developed praxeology, perhaps his most controversial contribution to economic science. Praxeology starts with fundamental axioms, then derives economic theory by working logically through a deductive process. As such, praxeology is at odds with logical positivism and empiricism—and presents a markedly different approach to economics.
