  2. Feminist Economics: An Austrian Perspective.Steven Horwitz - 1995 - Journal of Economic Methodology 2 (2):259-280.
    This paper attempts to assess the recent literature on feminist economics from the perspective of modern Austrian economics. Feminists and Austrians share many epistemological and methodological criticisms of neoclassical theory, although Austrians have never linked those criticisms to gender. Both groups argue that the attempt to mimic the methods of the natural sciences has been a particular source of trouble for neoclassicism. The paper suggests that these common points of criticism can serve as a starting point for dialogue between the (...)

    Two Worlds at Once: Rand, Hayek, and the Ethics of the Micro- and Macro-Cosmos.Steven Horwitz - 2005 - Journal of Ayn Rand Studies 6 (2):375-403.
    Although both Rand and Hayek supported capitalism, their ethical systems were distinctly different. This paper explores these differences and how they apply to the institution of the family. It concludes that Rand 's ethical system matches very well with what Hayek sees as necessary in the "Great Society" of the macro - cosmos, but that our understanding of the institution of the family seems better suited to a more altruistic ethical code. The challenge for a Hayekian ethics that pays attention (...)

    Comment on Boettke and Subrick and Faulkner.Steven Horwitz - 2002 - Journal of Economic Methodology 9 (1):81-86.
    The papers by Boettke and Subrick and Faulkner explore productive links between John Searle's philosophy and economics. Further lines of exploration could include bringing in evolutionary insights to explain the sorts of probability biases identified by Faulkner and linking Searle more closely to work by Hayek and Polanyi, as noted by Boettke and Subrick. In particular, Searle's notions of the Background, Intentionality and the Network can enrich Hayek-inspired Austrian microeconomics by providing an epistemological basis for the Austrian emphasis on the (...)

    Entrepreneurship, Exogenous Change and the Flexibility of Capital.Steven Horwitz - 2002 - Journal des Economistes Et des Etudes Humaines 12 (1).
    This paper applies Israel Kirzner’s theory of entrepreneurship and the Austrian theory of capital to the theory of the firm. In particular, it explores why some firms are better able to react to exogenous change than others, especially when that change is negative. The argument is that firms that have structures of physical and human capital that are more “flexible” are better able to adapt to exogenous change. In this context, flexibility is understood in terms of Lachmann’s notions of the (...)

    Ludwig Lachmann as a Theorist of Entrepreneurship.Steven Horwitz - 2019 - Studies in Logic, Grammar and Rhetoric 57 (1):19-40.
    One of the distinctive features of the Austrian School of Economics has been its emphasis on the entrepreneur as central to the market process. One 20th century Austrian whose work is normally not thought of as making a major contribution to the Austrian theory of entrepreneurship is Ludwig Lachmann. However, a careful reading of his 1956 book Capital and its Structure can tease out a theory of the function of the entrepreneur that is distinctly different from that of Israel Kirzner, (...)

    Systemic Rationality and the Effects of Financial Regulation: Rejoinder to Kindleberger.Steven Horwitz - 1994 - Critical Review 8 (4):615-621.
    In his Reply, Kindleberger falsely ascribes to me the views that political actors are utterly incompetent, while market actors are completely rational; and that political processes are pure chaos, while market processes are perfectly efficient. My point was that the relatively better performance of the market is a result of systemic factors, not the rationality of individuals. Kindleberger fails to address the historical evidence indicating the comparatively poor performance of government intervention in the monetary order. ?Market manias? are, in fact, (...)
