What's Austrian about Austrian economics?

While many of its early proponents hailed from that historic nation, Austrian economists today tend not to be, well, Austrian. Instead, this school of thought is characterized by a set of propositions about economics, including methodological individualism, subjective utility, and entrepreneurial discovery.

But what do these mean, and what are the issues that Austrian economists are interested in today? We hope this month's collection helps shed some light on these questions. And we hope you'll let us know what else you might want to see. Perhaps you have a suggestion for a virtual or online reading group? Is there someone you'd like us to interview? Maybe a suggestion for a book review? Whatever it is, we always love to receive your feedback. Let us know at econlib@libertyfund.org or on social media. We're listening.
