The Nationalökonomische Gesellschaft (Austrian Economic Association, NOeG) in the Interwar Period and Beyond
Abstract: The Nationalökonomische Gesellschaft (Austrian Economic
Association, NOeG) provides a prominent example of the Viennese economic
circles that more than academic economics dominated scientific discourse in
the interwar years. For the first time this paper gives a thorough account
of its history, from its foundation 1918 until the demise of its long-time
president, Hans Mayer, 1955, based on official documents and archival
material. The topics treated include its predecessor and rival, the
Gesellschaft österreichischer Volkswirte, the foundation 1918 soon to be
followed by years of inactivity, the relaunch by Mayer and Mises, the
survival under the NS-regime and the expulsion of its Jewish members, and
the slow restoration after 1945. In particular, an attempt is made to
provide a list of the papers presented to the NOeG, as complete as
possible, for the period 1918-1938.
