A pesquisa em economia austríaca que funciona
Peter Boettke tem uma excelente resenha sobre a economia austríaca (e sobre porque Paul Davidson continua sem entender nada sobre muita coisa). Está aqui. A prova cabal de que austríacos legítimos não são dogmáticos, mas se submetem ao teste do mercado das idéias está aqui.
But Mises nowhere imposed a freezing of economic knowledge around his theories. In fact, as Mises explicitly said: “Science does not give us absolute and final certainty. It only gives us assurances within the limits of our mental abilities and the prevailing state of scientific thought. A scientific system is but one station in an endless progressing search for knowledge. It is necessarily affected by the insufficiency inherent in every human effort. But to acknowledge these facts does not means that present-day economics is backward. It merely means that economics is a living thing — and to live implies both imperfection and change.” (p. 7)
Later on Mises states again clearly that in matters of science: “All that man can do is to submit all his theories again and again to the most critical examination.” (p. 68)
