Happy Birthday Ludwig von Mises

“True, man cannot escape death. But for the present he is alive; and life, not death, takes hold of him… It is mans innate nature that he seeks to preserve and to strengthen his life, that he is discontented and aims at removing uneasiness, that he is in search of what may be called happiness”.- Ludwig von Mises, Human Action (page 877)

Happy Birthday Ludwig!

Born on September 29, 1881, Mises changes everything.  It is amazing that a book I read shortly after graduating from college continues to give me insights and mentors me.  It gives clarity which provides me happiness.

Below are a couple videos which introduce the science of human action.
