Abstract

Little is known about the relationship between Carl Menger, founder of the Austrian School of Economics and one of the three fathers of marginal utility theory, and Karl Menger, whose Vienna Mathematical Colloquium was crucial to the development of mathematical economics. The present paper begins to fill this gap in the literature.

Keywords: Carl Menger, Karl Menger, Austrian School of Economics, Mathematical Colloquium, Vienna Circle
