The Development of Austrian Economics: Revisiting the Neoclassical Divide

  • Peter Lewin


Recent developments in Austrian-market-process economics are discussed, and, despite the continuing difficulties of communicating with mainstream economics, some causes for optimism are discerned. Looking to a useful future for Austrian economics will require that further empirical work in applying its insights be done. The question of placing the burden of proof in policy discussions is examined.
