Today in the History of Economics

It's the birthday of Eugen von Bohm-Bawerk. He was a leading member of the Austrian School, and his focus was on interest rates. If you're interested, you can access his major work, Capital and Interest, here. (I've not read it.) He was also one of Schumpeter’s teachers. There's a good bio of Bohm-Bawerk here.

It's a busy day today so there's just time for this short post. (If some extra time pops up, I may post again later.)

As always, I welcome your comments.
