In diesem Artikel wird unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der Schriften von Friedrich August von Hayek und seines intellektuellen Umfelds verdeutlicht, inwiefern auf die Forderung nach Integration (oder auch Assimilation oder gar Schutz der bestehenden Kultur) der Vorwurf des „Konstruktivismus“ zutrifft, den Hayek den Verfechtern der Planwirtschaft macht. Weiterhin soll begründet werden, warum in einer Offenen (Karl Popper) oder der Großen (Hayek) Gesellschaft auf eine Steuerung von Verhaltensweisen, Lebensgewohnheiten und ähnlichem verzichtet werden sollte, und weshalb die spontane Ordnung auch außerhalb der Sphäre des Ökonomischen das erfolgreichste Modell zur Entwicklung einer Gesellschaft ist.

Transnational regulatory networks play important roles in multi-level regulatory regimes, as e.g, the European Union. In this paper we analyze the role of regulatory networks from the perspective of the economic theory of legal federalism. Often sophisticated intermediate institutional solutions between pure centralisation and pure decentralisation can help to solve complex trade off problems between the benefits and problems of centralised and decentralised solutions.

This paper constitutes the start of Stefan Kolev’s project dedicated to Austrian economist and economic sociologist Friedrich von Wieser (1851-1926). Its central claim is that especially in recent decades, Wieser has become a disproportionately underresearched scholar, and the paper provides a set of arguments why this is unjustified.

This paper explores the four decades of intellectual relationship between the Austrian School economist Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) and two major representatives of German ordoliberalism, Walter Eucken (1891-1950) and Wilhelm Röpke (1899-1966). The timespan covered starts in the early 1920s and terminates with Röpke’s passing in 1966. The central goal of the paper is to provide a more nuanced understanding of the reasons for the hostile climate and the confrontation patterns than earlier narratives in secondary literature.

This is the first-ever English translation of an 1891 essay by Carl Menger published in the most important newspaper of the Habsburg Empire, the Neue Freie Presse. Menger writes the piece as a defense of classical political economy in general and of Adam Smith in particular, focusing on misinterpretations of Smith’s work by the Younger Historical School in Germany.

We develop a model of insurrection markets and integrate the youth bulge as measured by the relative youth cohort size. As youth-specific characteristics we define the young person’s attitude toward revolutionary groups and the government, the degree of risk aversion and the relative productivity of young people on the insurrection market as compared to the official labor market.
