Introduction: German neo-liberalism and its relevance for Austrian economics Rev Austrian Econ (2013) 26:105–108 DOI 10.1007/s11138-013-0219-7 Introduction: German neo-liberalism and its relevance for Austrian economics Michael Wohlgemuth Published online: 24 March 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York 2013 Why should (mostly American) readers of the Review of Austrian Economics take the pain and look at the following three papers dealing with German Neo-Liberalism? The short answer is: because they are likely to be “Austrians”. I take it that Austrian economists (like myself) show an interest in the history of economic ideas, in matters of methodology, and in big questions of politics and the institutional foundations of the social order that is hardly to be found in the realm of “pure” and “mainstream” economics. The following papers address these issues and present authors and views that are likely to be rather unfamiliar to most non-German- “Austrian” readers. But there are several good reasons why it might be useful for Austrian economists to look into German neo-liberalism. One is that the authors presented here (Walter Eucken, Wilhelm Röpke, Alexander Rüstow, Alfred Müller-Armack and others) were exposed to the same intellectual climate at roughly the same time as was the second generation of “Austrians”: Ludwig von Mises or Friedrich von Hayek.
