Free Market Masters: Ludwig von Mises

Here's an interesting video published by the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) about Ludwig von Mises and Austrian Economics. In the institute's own words:
Ludwig von Mises was one of the greatest economists and political scientists of the twentieth century. He revolutionised the understanding of money, inflation and recessions; comprehensively refuted the arguments for socialism; and provided a devastating critique of the methodologies of mainstream economics. His contributions to the Austrian School laid the intellectual groundwork for thinkers such as F. A. Hayek, Murray Rothbard and Israel Kirzner.
