Hans Sennholz

Hans F. Sennholz (February 3 1922June 23 2007) (born in Brambauer, Germany) was an economist from the Austrian school of economics who studied under Ludwig von Mises. After serving in the Luftwaffe in World War II, he took degrees at the universities of Marburg and Köln, then moved to the United States to study for a Ph.D. at New York University. He taught economics at Grove City College, 1956–1992, having been hired as department chair upon arrival. After he retired, he became president of the Foundation for Economic Education, 1992–1997.

Fellow Austrian Joseph Salerno has notably [http://www.mises.org/story/1155 praised] Sennholz as an under-appreciated member of the Austrian school who "writes so clearly on such a broad range of topics that he is in danger of suffering the same fate as Say [Jean-Baptiste Say] and Bastiat [Frederic Bastiat] . As Joseph Schumpeter pointed out, these two brilliant nineteenth-century French economists, who were also masters of economic rhetoric, wrote with such clarity and style that their work was misjudged by their British inferiors as 'shallow' and 'superficial'."

2008 U.S. presidential candidate Ron Paul [http://www.usagold.com/gildedopinion/taylorpaulintrvw.html credits] his fascination with economics to meeting Sennholz and getting to know him well.
