On this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, we'll listen to an archived episode, featuring Israel Kirzner, discussing his career as an Austrian economist. Kirzner shares how he started his studies from an accounting focus, having never heard of Austrian economics, until a chance class with Ludwig von Mises changed the course of his career. He goes on to explore the process by which Austrian economics has developed over the years and explains the one insight from Mises it took him 10 years to fully understand. Join us for this exciting trip down memory lane as we hear from one of the key thinkers in Austrian economics!
