Description
‘The book can be recommended both to those who know something about Austrian economics already, and to those who know nothing.’
– David Simpson, Economic Affairs

‘Mr Boettke’s very readable compendium consists of short articles by mostly young scholars, selected to illustrate the diversity and fecundity of modern Austrian economics.’
– Michael Prowse, The Financial Times

The Elgar Companion to Austrian Economics is a major new reference work which highlights the common ground between all the branches of the school while demonstrating the breadth and diversity within it.

The Companion reflects the many areas where Austrian economists have made contributions, including technical economics, methodology of the social sciences, political theory and political science. This book includes contributions from an international group of scholars whose work demonstrates a basic similarity and interest in questions which have historically been associated with the Austrian approach to economics, although many of the contributors would not consider themselves to be strictly of this school.

Contents
The distinguished team of contributors commissioned by the editor includes: K.D. Hoover, I.M. Kirzner, A. Klamer, D. Lavoie, M. Rizzo, C.K. Rowley, M. Rutherford, R.E. Wagner, U. Witt, L. Yeager
