Author: Strigl, Richard von
Richard Ritter von Strigl (1891-1942) was one of the most brilliant Austrian economists of the interwar period. As professor at the University of Vienna he had a decisive influence on Hayek, Machlup, Haberler, Morgenstern, and other fourth-generation Austrian economists.
Very few classic works on capital and business cycles in the Austrian tradition have been translated from the original German. Now Strigl's important contribution to Austrian capital theory is brought to the English-speaking world for the first time. The book links Eugen von Bhm-Bawerk's production theory and Mises's business cycle theory, and gives a pathbreaking account of the role of consumers' goods within the structure of production.
Translated by Hans-Hermann Hoppe, with an extended introduction by Jrg Guido Hlsmann, Capital and Production is the essential foundation, both in theory and in the history of thought, to Austrian macroeconomics.
