Bettina Greaves on Ludwig von Mises’s Life

Bettina Bien Greaves attended Ludwig von Mises’s New York University seminars for many years and has translated, edited, and compiled several of his works, including Mises: An Annotated Bibliography (1993). She is currently a resident scholar and trustee of the Foundation for Economic Education.

In this talk from a 1994 Future of Freedom Foundation event, Greaves shares collected stories from the Austrian economist’s life, including his interactions with Ayn Rand, Israel Kirzner, Henry Hazlitt, and Murray Rothbard. Greaves also talks about Mises’s seminars at New York University and offers a glimpse at the wide array of topics the economist lectured on throughout his lifetime.
