As I mention in today’s Daily, one of the really exciting developments in the continued growth of the Austrian school is what is going on in Brazil.I just did a Google trend search to see how Paul Krugman matches up against Mises. The chart speaks for itself:
In one his last works, Theory and History, Mises wrote:
Thoughts and ideas are not phantoms. They are real things. Although intangible and immaterial, they are factors in bringing about changes in the realm of tangible and material things.
We are seeing in Brazil today the real impact ideas can have on a nation.
While their appearance this week in the Wall Street Journal is a testament to the respect Mises Brasil is earning across the world, I think the best testament to the work of Helio Beltrão and the incredible organization of Austro-libertarians is the fact that Ludwig von Mises is now searched more in their country than either John Maynard Keynes or Milton Friedman.
