This group is for everyone curious about economics, regardless of previous knowledge.

There are various schools of economic thought, of which we find the Vienna School  the most convincing, due to its predictive track record and elegant theory. It was founded by Carl Menger (group photo) and most prominently represented by Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich A. Hayek. Of course, critical questions and objections from any other perspective are always welcome.

A great introduction to the principles of sound economic thinking is given in the videos The Broken Window Fallacy (here with Spanish subtitles) and I, PencilYou can learn more about the Vienna School in our Pages section.
