Mises and His Understanding of the Capitalist System

  • Israel M. Kirzner
Keywords: Ludwig von Mises, Prices, Market, Equilibrium, Subjective Value, Consumer Sovereignty

We shall find that the resolution of this tension is, once it has been explained, fairly obvious, but we also discover that a careful consideration regarding this resolution can help us to more fully appreciate the uniqueness (and the intellectual integrity) of Mises’ understanding of the capitalist system.
