Happy Birthday to Ludwig Von Mises!

Today, 129 years ago, the distinguished economist and the leader of the Austrian School of Economics was born. His work is outstanding. It is very broad ranging from topics of socialism to the quantity theory of money. Ludwig Von Mises taught at the University of Vienna, Austria, and later at New York University, USA. If you have not read his work, please, start reading it now. 
It's a very interesting fact that Ludwig Von Mises was born in Lemberg in Galicia province of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Now,  Lemberg is know as .... Lviv, Ukraine. I wonder whether anybody celebrates his birthday in Ukraine?
