Comment: About Mises and Hayek being funded by Rockefeller:

(See in situ)


About Mises and Hayek being funded by Rockefeller:

I have no idea who all funded them, but, I do know that if Rockefeller had "funded" Mises, he wouldn't have been teaching as an unpaid, "visiting professor" teaching in the basement of a tiny, insignificant school that few have ever even heard of.

However, if I were Rockefeller, I would be giving boatloads of funding to free market economists because free market economists are one of the few ideological checks on ambitious, power-hungry, opulist politicians who like to rabble rouse the poor and lower, middle class and capitslize on envy against successful rich people.
