Recently, I was interviewed by Lex Hoogduin, professor in monetary economics at the University of Groningen and former director of the Dutch central bank (DNB), about the publication of the first Dutch edition of Ludwig von Mises’ magnum opus, Human Action. Despite the fact that this book appeared for the first time in 1949, the lessons of Mises are as relevant as ever. How relevant exactly? Let’s look at five quotes from Mises’ masterpiece to see just how relevant his work still is today.


Ludwig von Mises on the Pain of Savers and Pensioners

Ludwig von Mises on Sovereign Debt

Ludwig von Mises on the Manipulation of Interest Rates by Central Banks

Ludwig von Mises on “Monetary Coordination”

Ludwig von Mises on War
