Ludwig von Mises
1. According to preliminary estimates, our goal is 300,000 hryvnias (the development of a sketch, the creation of a monument with a height of 1.8 meters in bronze, transportation, a pedestal, installation work and other expenses)
2. Transparent reporting – we will monthly publish the flow of funds and will report back for every penny.
3. The choice of the sculptor will hold throughout the year by open vote. Such a mini tender – price / quality ratio.
4. Sketch is chosen together by voting.
5. We will keep everyone informed about the process of raising funds, obtaining of permission to install and other news.
Lviv is not only the place where Mises was born and spent his first years of life. Moreover, throughout his life, Mises had a definite connection. His first scientific work concerned the situation of the villagers in Galicia, later on the fronts of the First World War, Mises studied the Ukrainian language, and even for a short time was an adviser to the Hetman Skoropadsky government on monetary reform. Monument to Mises in Lviv will be an ornament to the city, a tribute of honor and gratitude from Ukrainians and all who love and appreciate scientific truth, freedom and capitalism.
Also, by this monument we want to show the Ukrainians in which direction the country should move. To draw attention to the works and ideas of Mises, his understanding of democracy, the importance of a free market economy. The times of the Soviet Union ended – it is time to take responsibility for your life for yourself.

Ludwig Heinrich Edler von Mises(1881-1973)
One of the most prominent economists and social philosophers of the twentieth century, Ludwig von Mises, during his long and highly productive life, developed an integrated deductive science of economics, based on the fundamental axiom that certain people purposefully act to achieve their desired goals. Although his own economic analysis was “free from values” – in the sense that values should not affect the economists ’conclusions, Mises concluded that the only viable economic policy for humanity is a policy of non-interference, free markets and unhindered the exercise of private property rights, while the government is strictly limited to the protection of life and property.
