Richard Ebeling on the Intellectual Roots of Spontaneous Order

Richard Ebeling is currently a professor of economics at Northwood University. He was the president of the Foundation for Economic Education from 2003 to 2008 and has published several books on Ludwig von Mises and Austrian economics. In this lecture at a 1996 conference hosted by the Center for Market Processes, Ebeling reviews the economic traditions out of which Ludwig von Mises and F.A. Hayek’s conceptualizations of the principle of spontaneous order arose.
