Academic Economics at the University of Vienna, 1917-1950

Project Details


While in the time between the wars the Austrian School of Economics experienced a final period of flourishing, albeit outside academia, academic economics at the University of Vienna was characterized by a process of crisis and decay. This project examines the general political climate as well as the imponderables of academic politics as determinants of this development, mostly by drawing on unpublished material and on archival sources.
