On this episode of The Tatiana Show, we welcome fellow promoter and defender of liberty, Jeff Deist. Jeff is the president of the Mises Institute, an organization created to educate in the Austrian school of economics, individual freedom, honest history, and international peace.

Jeff tells his story of his brother influencing him to the ideas of liberty, meeting Ron Paul in 1988, and eventually working for Dr. Paul on his congressional and presidential campaigns after a tenure as a private practice attorney.

We also get some history of the Mises Institute and its founding in the 1980’s by Lew Rockwell, Murray Rothbard, and Margit Von Mises to promote her husband’s dream of a graduate institute for Austrian economics.

We also get Jeff’s take on the current political climate and his opinions on:

Donald Trump and what led him to the presidency and if there’s any influence from Ron Paul or Austrian economics.
If the Libertarian party has a place in the 2020 election.
Why Libertarianism is a tough sell and does the liberty movement need a leader.
Be sure to listen for Jeff’s thoughts on the current candidates such as Bernie Sanders and Jacob Hornberger, what he sees as the most important war to get out of, and his hope for the future of cryptocurrency and Bitcoin.

  • It seems to me from what I have read that the neoclassical heritage of the Austrian School was hijacked after Bohm-Bawerk’s death and the elevation of Weiser to the position of ‘spokesperson’ for Mengerian economics. He was clearly a positivist.

  • Relevant reading: Should game theory be brought into the Austrian School, and if so, how? Should aspects of game theory which do not square easily with aspects of Austrian economics be rejected, or should those aspects of Austrian economics be rejected? Discuss.

  • The investor, Ray Dalio, who produced this video clearly has a solid grasp of credit cycles and some of the problems facing us in our economy today. He also is an extremely successful investor. I think what he is missing in this video is the Austrian Business Cycle theory. Please submit thoughts on how you would respond to this. Where is it inaccurate, and where is it accurate? It is certainly very well made and very clear.

  • I think the Mises Institute should present Israel Kirzner with one of their awards because since he is one of the last few who actually studied under Ludwig von Mises, and (despite differences of opinion in the Austrian School) has been one the main contributing players in the school. I suggest doing this because since he’s “getting on in life” I think it would be a good thing for the Mises Institute to recognise his contribution to Austrian Economics “before his time comes,” what do you think? Kirzner on Rothbard: The Intellectual Portrait Series: A conversation with Israel Kirzner “Seminar students such as Hans Sennholz, William Peterson, George Reisman, Israel Kirzner, and Ralph Raico eventually formed—together with Murray Rothbard—the solid core of Misesians to hold out through the long libertarian winter of the 1960s and 1970s, thus enabling the breakthrough of Misesian ideas of the 1980s and 1990s. At least three regular NYU students would eventually become important Misesians who, each in his own way, took up where their teacher had left off: Hans Sennholz, Israel Kirzner, and George Reisman.” Jörg Guido Hülsmann: Last Knight of Liberalism. “In his twenty-four years at New York University Professor Mises sponsored only four candidates who wrote their dissertations under his tutelage (Sennholz, Spadaro, Kirzner, Reisman).” Hans Sennholz.
