The Ludwig von Mises Institute (LvMI), or simply "Mises Institute", located in Auburn, Alabama, is an American organization named for Austrian School economist Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973). Its website states that it is "the world center of the Austrian School of economics and libertarian political and social theory," and that it is dedicated to advancing "the Misesian tradition of thought through the defense of the market economy, private property, sound money, and peaceful international relations, while opposing government intervention."
The Mises Institute was founded in 1982 by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr. It sponsors annual conferences, a physical library at its Alabama location, online study and research materials, various academic fellowships, and an active electronic and print publishing program. Although it has working relationships with individuals such as U.S. Representative Ron Paul and organizations like the Foundation for Economic Education, it does not seek to implement public policy and has has no formal affiliation with any political party. The "Mises Institute is funded entirely by voluntary contributions from individuals, businesses, and foundations."
The official motto of the Ludwig von Mises Institute is Tu ne cede malis sed contra audentior ito, which comes from Virgil's Aeneid, Book VI; the motto means "do not give in to evil but proceed ever more boldly against it." Early in his life, Mises chose this sentence to be his guiding principle in life. It is prominently displayed throughout the Institute's campus, on their website, and on memorabilia.
The Ludwig von Mises Institute was established in 1982 with the support of Margit von Mises, widow of Ludwig von Mises, who chaired the Institute's board until her death in 1993. The Founder was Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr who had become acquainted with Mises' work while working as an editorial assistant at Arlington House Publishers. Rockwell is the former president, and since 2009 has been Chairman, of the Institute. Economist Murray Rothbard was a prominent influence on the Institute's early activities and served as its academic vice president until his death in 1995. Friedrich von Hayek, Lawrence Fertig, and Henry Hazlitt are among others who assisted in its development.
Lew Rockwell has stated that the Institute met strong opposition from parties affiliated with the Koch family in the wake of a dispute which occurred between Murray Rothbard and the Cato Institute, another libertarian organization, in the early 1980's. Rothbard had been a founder of the Cato Institute, and although the members of the two Institutes had been staunch allies throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, a rift subsequently developed between the two organizations and their affiliated individuals.
Mission and activities 
|Part of a series on the|
The Institute is critical of democracy, which authors in Mises Institute publications have called coercive, incompatible with wealth creation, replete with inner contradictions, and a system of legalized graft.
With 80 academic staff and affiliates (fellows), the Institute has sponsored numerous conferences and seminars on subjects ranging from monetary policy to "Lincoln and the Growth of Statism." The Institute has published dozens of books, hundreds of papers and thousands of articles covering economic and historical issues.
The Institute's website went online in 1995 and it has produced many videos, including Liberty and Economics: The Ludwig von Mises Legacy, The Future of Austrian Economics and Money, Banking, and the Federal Reserve.
Institute scholars typically take a critical view of most U.S. government activities, foreign and domestic, throughout American history. The Institute characterizes itself as libertarian and expresses antiwar and non-interventionist positions on American foreign policy, asserting that war is a violation of rights to life, liberty, and property, with destructive effects on the market economy, and tends to increase the power of government. The Institute's website offers content which expresses support of individualism and is explicitly critical of democracy, collectivism, fascism, socialism, and communism.
The website offers online articles and books by Ludwig von Mises, Murray N. Rothbard, and many other scholars who cite the Austrian school in their writings. The Institute's current campus was built in 1998; its main building is a Victorian-style villa. Before that, the Institute's offices were located in the business department at Auburn University. A 2006 article in The Wall Street Journal discusses the rationale behind its strategic placement in rural Alabama. The author suggests that "a charming downtown, low prices for room and board, easy access to Atlanta's international airport, and good ol' Southern hospitality" were among the reasons for locating in Alabama. In addition, he suggests that "Southerners have always been distrustful of government," making the South a natural home for the organization's paleolibertarian outlook. The institute is not affiliated with Auburn University.
In 2007, the Institute's annual revenues were $3,583,575 and its expenses were $2,852,751. These expenses went to programs (75.5%), administration (13.6%) and fundraising (10.7%); it does not receive public money.
The Mises Institute publishes several periodicals and Daily Articles, or blogs. Its Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics is dedicated to the promotion of Austrian economics. Its Journal of Libertarian Studies claims to be the preeminent platform for historical revisionism and the reconstruction of the history of ideas from an Austrian point of view.
The Institute has published nearly 50 books and pamphlets, most of which deal with topics covering political and economic topics. Others deal with history, from early American settlements to the Great Depression. A catalog appears on the Mises.org website. 
Other resources 
- The "Are You An Austrian?" quiz is designed to test an individual's economic reasoning. Its questions include topics covering many fundamental tenets in economic thought (e.g., property rights, the role of state intervention, value of money). It has been criticized by economists such as Arnold Kling.
- The Austrian Literature Guide is a freely-accessible comprehensive selection of Austrian-oriented literature comprising videos, audio lectures, books, papers and more. As of May 2008, it comprises approximately 3,000 unique items and the entire contents of 239 books and seven academic journals.
- The Mises Academy, started in March 2010, is a fee-based Moodle e-learning initiative of the Institute which provides access to material sourced from past Mises Academy conferences and other works created by fellows of the Institute. Mises Academy instructors include Thomas DiLorenzo, David Gordon, Stephan Kinsella, Robert P. Murphy, Thomas Woods, and Peter G. Klein.
- The Ward and Massey libraries are an on-site archive of nearly 35,000 volumes.
|Part of a series on|
- The Austrian Scholars Conference is an annual event held for several days each spring at the Institute's campus and featuring lectures and moderated panels on diverse subjects.
- Mises University, started in 1986, is a week-long summer instructional program. The schedule of events includes lectures from senior and adjunct faculty members, reading groups, discussion panels and various social functions. It takes place twice each summer, and typically hosts 100–125 students from around the world (reportedly nearly 30% are from Europe).
- Throughout the year, the Institute hosts numerous symposia. These range on topic from the history of taxation to free speech and dissent during wartime. They are typically hosted by a senior faculty member or noted scholar (such as historian Charles Adams and literary critic Paul Cantor).
Academic awards 
In maintaining a tradition of recognizing scholarly achievement, each year the Institute awards several individuals for their accomplishments. The annual Schlarbaum Prize for lifetime defense of liberty, awards $10,000 to a public intellectual or distinguished scholar. The Kurzweg Family Prize awards $5,000 for the defense of liberty, property, and personal responsibility. The Elgin Groseclose Award, a $20 Liberty Head Double Eagle, goes to the best piece of money writing in the previous year. The Lawrence W. Fertig Prize in Austrian Economics awards $1,000 to the author of a paper that best advances economic science in the Austrian tradition. The O.P. Alford III Prize in Libertarian Scholarship awards $1,000 to the author of the paper best advances libertarian scholarship.
Individuals such as Congressman Ron Paul and philosopher Antony Flew are among past laureates.
Views espoused by founder and organization scholars 
Institute scholars have been highly critical of Abraham Lincoln's conduct of the American Civil War (e.g. suspending habeas corpus), asserting that his policies contributed to the growth of statism in the United States. Senior faculty member Thomas DiLorenzo, in his critical biographies The Real Lincoln and Lincoln: Unmasked, argues that the sixteenth president substantially expanded the size and powers of the federal government at the expense of individual liberty. Adjunct faculty member Donald Livingston shares a similar view, blaming Lincoln for the creation of "a French Revolutionary style unitary state" and "centralizing totalitarianism." Institute scholars have also taken a more general anti-war stance. Many works espousing a general anti-war view such as John Denson's A Century of War and H.C. Engelbrecht's The Merchants of Death can be found on the institute’s website and purchased through its bookstore.
The Institute's publications argue that fascism and National Socialism (Nazism) are branches of socialist political philosophy. They assert that these ideologies are based on collectivist rejections of the individual in favor of some "greater good", and that they incorporate central control over the economy and often also society. This line of argument is discussed in more detail at Fascism and ideology.
Not to be confused with a republic, a democracy is a system in which, theoretically, what the majority says goes. The reality, however, is more complex and much uglier. In a democracy, various political elites struggle for control of the state apparatus by appealing to the material interests of large voting blocks with promises of legalized graft.
Institute scholars disagree on the subject of immigration. Walter Block argues in favor of open borders. Hans-Hermann Hoppe argues that in a stateless society individuals would only be able to travel with permission of individual land owners.
Faculty and administration 
The Institute has a staff of 16 senior scholars and about 200 adjunct scholars from the United States and other countries. There are several other Institutes with the same name throughout the world, including those in Belgium, Poland, Argentina, Brazil, Romania, Ecuador, Czech Republic & Slovakia, and Portugal. However, the Institute has no formal ties with any of them.
The Institute has been characterized by some writers as "right-wing," a label which individuals associated with the Institute, including Lew Rockwell, say is inaccurate. This claim is also disputed by sources published in the Mises Institute working papers, which cite Institute faculty member Roderick Long and others whom they describe as "left libertarians."
Views on the Confederacy 
The Claremont Institute's Harry V. Jaffa has debated on Lincoln with LvMI's Thomas DiLorenzo and writers from both organizations have sparred in editorial publications. DiLorenzo's references to the American Civil War as the "War to prevent Southern Independence" and Mises faculty member Thomas Woods's presence at the founding of the League of the South were cited by James Kirchick, writing for the New Republic, as suggesting a "disturbing attachment to the Confederacy." Woods has stated that he was present at the meeting at which the organization was founded, and later contributed to its newsletter, but that his involvement was limited.
Lew Rockwell responded to these criticisms by writing "We have published revisionist accounts of the origins of the Civil War that demonstrate that the tariff bred more conflict between the South and the feds than slavery. For that, we were decried as a dangerous institutional proponent of “neoconfederate” ideology. Why not just plain old Confederate ideology."
