An erudite free-marketeer who embraced methodological individualism, Leland B. Yeager always insisted that he was not an Austrian School economist but only a “fellow traveler,” and yet his affinity for Ludwig von Mises runs deeper than that of many scholars who proclaim “Austrian” credentials. He was also an architect of public choice and Virginial School political economy, one whose importance has been underestimated.
