Murray Rothbard | Libertarian Society Singapore
“It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.’ But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.” - Murray RothbardThe Death Wish of the Anarcho-Communists

Murray Newton Rothbard was an American heterodox economist of the Austrian School, a revisionist historian and a political theorist whose writings and personal influence played a seminal role in the development of modern libertarianism.

Rothbard rejected mainstream economic methodologies and instead embraced the praxeology of his most important intellectual precursor, Ludwig von Mises. To promote his economic and political ideas, Rothbard joined Llewellyn H. "Lew" Rockwell, Jr. and Burton Blumert in 1982 to establish the Ludwig von Mises Institute in Alabama.

Murray Rothbard passed away on January 7, 1995.
