Tomado del texto: "Because I am not a scholar or an economist, I shall not speak about my husband's economics. I shall leave that to the economists. I am glad to see that so many understand my husband's ideas and realize their importance. I am also happy to know there will be more and more such economists. As you may know, there will be other meetings like this celebrating the 100th birthday of Ludwig von Mises. On September 20, under the guiding hand of Professor Israel Kirzner, a conference of scholars in New York jointly sponsored by New York University and the Liberty Fund, will discuss several papers written especially for this occasion. ... For five years, he fought in the First World War because he considered it his duty to follow the call to arms of his native country, which as you all know, was Austria. For those five years, he fought the troops of the Tsar of Russia. For the rest of his life he fought the Russian communists with his pen, his lectures, and his books. He did not hate the Russian people, of course. He hated socialism, which the Russian people were forced to accept. For sixty-four years, since the Russian Revolution, the Russian people have had no opportunity to learn the truth and enjoy the sweetness of liberty. I often wonder what Russia would be like today if my husband's books had been allowed to circulate freely in that country."
