What is an Austrian School Economist? What principles do they believe in and what do they think of our current situation?

I've heard on many podcasts and interviews someone refer to themselves as an Austrian Economist and wondered what that meant. Sure, I understood those from the Austrian School were non-interventionalists and anti-bailout but what else do they stand for?

In this interview Douglas French, President of the Ludwig Von Mises Institute stops by to talk about the Austrian School of Economics. We discuss many issues concerning Austrian Economics including libertarianism, liberalism, and free markets.

If you have never been to the Mises.org website then please spend 4-5 minutes cruising the vast resources of excellent material. You'd be amazed at the amount of information that is availbale for free on their website, and don't forget to pick up a Rothbard Flask in the Site Store, Two Beers Approved!
