The Mises Institute lacks billionaire backers and certainly receives no state grants. We are supported by a grassroots network of people like you who simply believe in our mission and recognize the importance of fighting for a free society.
Ludwig von Mises spent his life fighting the horrors of socialism, statism, and central planning. He never gave up, he never lost faith. Neither will we.
The Mises Institute exists to promote teaching and research in the Austrian school of economics, and individual freedom, honest history, and international peace, in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Murray N. Rothbard. These great thinkers developed praxeology, a deductive science of human action based on premises known with certainty to be true, and this is what we teach and advocate. Our scholarly work is founded in Misesian praxeology, and in self-conscious opposition to the mathematical modeling and hypothesis-testing that has created so much confusion in neoclassical economics.
