Ludwig von Mises as Feminist Economist
By Vicente Moreno-Casas
This article appeared in the Fall 2021 issue of The Independent Review.
Ludwig von Mises can be considered a feminist economist. Mises was a great promoter of womens development and freedom, as shown by his book on socialism, which addresses both marriage and violence toward women. More fundamentally, the epistemological and methodological foundations of Misess praxeology are compatible with Feminist Economics theory and claims. Feminist theory could be enriched with many of Misess ideas to make it more rigorous.
