The Mises Institute: Making an Impact

Although he has some libertarian tendencies, Steve Forbes has to be classified as establishmentarian versus libertarian, which makes his latest book all the more interesting.

In his new book, Freedom Manifesto: Why Free Markets Are Moral and Big Government Isn't, written with co-author Elizabeth Ames, not only are Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek quoted but the Mises Institute is mentioned in the acknowledgements. And, get this, Mises Institute affiliated scholars Robert Higgs, Bill Anderson and Thomas DiLorenzo are all quoted in the book, by referencing papers they wrote for MI.
