Carl Menger (1840-1921) was born in Nowy Sacz, Małopolska Voivodeship, Poland, during the former period of Austrian Galicia. His life achievements are most well known as a remarkable economist and the founder of the Austrian School of Economics, at the time a set of personal beliefs built during his time studying a doctorate of law (jurisprudence) at Jagiellonian University in Kraków.
Menger is credited as the most prominent figure in the influence of Economic Liberalism, and as such, has made profound impact on economics, business, law, personal liberty and liberal democracy since first releasing his theories publicly in 1883.
Currently based as a student run study group, for students, locals and supporters of the study of Austrian School beliefs, theory, history, practice, impact and future, we operate as an independent non-instutitional group of peers with a common interest, with regular meetings held at the historic Jagiellonian University in Kraków.
While economics is not a feature of the universities study areas in the current day, our study group is a small society based around the common interest and continuation of Austrian School Economics.
We aim to publish a wide range of completed study topics here in short article and detailed formats, on all areas we cover, as previously mentioned (core beliefs, existing theory, past history, current and historical practice, current and historical impact and the future of Austrian School Economic beliefs).
