The Austrian tradition in ecomic thought had a profound influence on the development of post-war ecomics including neoclassical orthodoxy, game theory, public choice, behavioral ecomics, experimental ecomics and complexity ecomics. Much of what was once unique to the Austrian school has become part of the cognitive DNA of work-a-day ecomists. Because these Austrian roots have gone largely unrecognized, ecomists often wonder quite sincerely what the fuss is about when it comes to the Austrian school. In this sense, the Austrian school has been a victim of its own success. The papers in this volume reveal that the riches of the Austrian school have t been exhausted and further inquiry in the Austrian tradition will continue to yield much that is new and valuable. The volume publishes a carefully selected subset of papers presented at the inaugural Wirth Institute Conference on the Austrian School of Ecomics. The contributors are Lawrence H White; Hansjorg Klausinger; Martin Gregor; Peter Boettke, Christopher Coyne, & Peter Leeson; Roger Koppl, Torsten Niechoj, Steven Horwitz; and, Peter Lewin. These scholars explore issues in ecomic policy, applied ecomics, and pure theory from a variety of perspectives. Their explorations of the frontiers of Austrian ecomics reveal a rich tradition of scholarship with continuing relevance to social thought is all its dimensions.
