The more the Murrayer?[edit]

As the article stands, it seems no section cannot end without a sentence or paragraph of "what would Rothbard say?" This places undue weight on his views and gives them undue emphasis relative to the other Austrian views and scholars on these subjects. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SPECIFICO (talkcontribs) 16:18, June 6, 2013

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Austrian School. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

Economics is mostly gas?[edit]

I recall while reading Austrian thought somewhere I found a quote, "Economics is mostly gas",or "economics is gas", or something similar. I can't find the source. Could ardent students of the Austrian economic thought might easily identify the source and develop on this topic please? It would be a good and interesting read.

Removed reference of Church-Turing computability as indicator of human actions[edit]

The text read "Mainstream economists have argued that Austrians are often averse to the use of mathematics and statistics in economics.[1] However, independent scholar Martin Sibileau, in 2014, offered a formal proof that, based on the Church-Turing thesis, human action is not "decidable", "computable" and therefore cannot be mathematized. He also suggested a logics-based approach for a definitive formalization of the Austrian thought."

Whether human action is decidable or computable has nothing to do with whether statistics can be applied. As shown by the indeterminacy in quantum state measurements, whether something *can* be known or computed has nothing to do whether it can be statistically modeled.
