Austrian Economics Seminar | An advanced epolicy certificate course
Rooted in the tradition of Austrian-born economists Carl Menger, Ludwig von Mises, and F.A. Hayek, “Austrian” economics is not a specific field within economics, nor is it a set of conclusions. It is an entirely different approach to understanding the social reality that dissents from the mainstream method, theory, and policy.
Austrian economics aims to understand society using realistic premises, instead of making unrealistic assumptions such as “perfect knowledge,” “perfect competition,” or “perfect governments.” It focuses on understanding dynamic social processes of coordination, learning, and discovery ubiquitous in a world of constant change, rather than stressing on static models. And most essentially, Austrian economics views human beings as unique, conscious, choosing agents, not as undifferentiated data to be aggregated or manipulated mathematically or politically.
The AES will illustrate the fundamental theoretical insights of the Austrian school of economics in an introductory way and show the usefulness of these insights in terms of their relevance to creating either prosperity and freedom or poverty and oppression in India
