Ludwig von Mises was born September 29th, 1881. As Henry Hazlitt said, “He was the greatest economist of his generation. He was more than that. He was one of the social thinkers of our age… I never heard a word of personal bitterness or resentment from his lips… It was this powerful challenge, forcing socialists to face their central problem that once caused a Marxist economist, Oskar Lange who later became a member of the Polish Politburo, to declare in admiration that 'in front of every socialist Ministry of Planning there should be a statue of Ludwig von Mises.'"
"Mr. von Mises believed in choice. He believed that choosing among options determines all human decisions and hence the entire sphere of human action... While man could destroy himself and civilization, he could also ascend -- in a free society, i.e., a free economy -- to undreamed-of cultural, intellectual and technological heights." ---The Wall Street Journal
"Mises was right." ---Robert Heilbroner, The New Yorker, 1990
"It is difficult to conceive of any person in our time who has given the world so much, yet been rewarded so little in return." ---Robert Bidinotto
