Dr. Reinhard Schumacher (Universität Potsdam): The life of Carl Menger: New Insights into the Biography of the Father of Austrian Economics
Veranstaltungsort: Walter Eucken Institut, Goethestraße 10, 79100 Freiburg

Abstract: Nearly one hundred years after Carl Menger’s death, comparable little is known about his life, even though he was one of the most influential economists and founder of the Austrian school of economics. Based on three hitherto unknown or unexamined sources, we will try to close this gap. These sources consist first and foremost of the draft of a biography by Carl Menger’s son, Karl Menger. He had spent the last years of his life writing a biographical account about his father, which he did not finish before his death in 1985. However, he left behind drafts of several chapters. Second, we use Carl Menger’s diaries and personal papers, which are part of the Carl Menger Papers at Duke University. Third, we include contemporary newspaper articles that report on events in Carl Menger’s life. Based on these sources, we give a new insight into the life, thought and political views of Carl Menger.
