Nobel Prize for Mises!!

Prof Pete Boettke of George Mason University says that:

  • Important to recognize that Mises, despite the fact that he was always a little bit out of step with the profession, he also was recognized. He was the Distinguished Fellow of the American Economics Association (AEA) in 1969; there was a large segment of people who pushed to try to get him the first Nobel Prize in economics. He won the highest medal of honor for scientific accomplishment from his own country, Austria. 
Listen the talk here. Also another one on Hayek is here.
