Interesting how Austrian economists see themselves:

  • Ludwig von Mises was a genius (obviously)
  • a Man of the Mind — and that’s a good thing
  • “dignified ruthlessness”
  • seriousness … also a good thing … Serious about Reality
  • quoting Ayn Rand is OK (erm, quoting her straightforwardly, not mockingly)
  • “We’re not dogmatic … we’re consistent
  • People who call us dogmatic believe in relative truth, not absolute truth

^ The last one is the only really confusing one to me.
