Ludwig von Mises
Ludwig von Mises (1881–1973)

From 2012 to 2014, I had the pleasure of hosting the Mises Circle at the University of Texas at Austin with Pierre Rochard, Daniel Krawisz, George McHugh, and many other Austrian longhorns. We covered a wide array of literature from Austrians and fellow travelers, as well as begin comprehensively analyzing Bitcoin through an Austrian lens, which later formed the basis of the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute.

The continued explosion of interest in Bitcoin has also fueled an increased interest in Austrian economics among bitcoiners. Here I have collected all of the readings from Mises Circle meetings. The list is not intended to be a cohesive curriculum, but instead serves to guide readers down rabbit holes they may have not seen before. For a self-guided introductory course in Austrian economics, I recommend combing through Saifedean Ammous’s “A Beginner’s Guide to Austrian Economics” and of course reading his book, The Bitcoin Standard. If you are looking for other people to read with, I recommend checking out the Bitcoin Reading Group managed by Justin Moon.

Happy reading!
