A relevância dessa análise está na verificação das consequências que pode advir do descumprimento de obrigações contratuais, e nos possíveis efeitos da iminente crise econômica, ambos relacionados com as determinações estatais que afetaram a continuidade das atividades empresariais.</p> <p> </p> <p>This scientific article aims to demonstrate the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic on the daily</p> <p>lives of Brazilian companies, focusing on the impacts detected in contracts already set and in force during the dispersion of the mentioned disease, as well as in the crises generated by measures of social isolation to contain its spread. The study addresses the State’s intervention in economic and social activities as a policy to face the pandemic. This analysis’s relevance rests on the verification of the consequences that may result from the breach of contractual obligations and on the possible effects of the imminent economic crisis, both related to the state determinations that affected the continuity of business activities.</p> 2021-04-14T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2021 MISES: Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy, Law and Economics The role of the State in the Origin and Institutional Evolution of Money in the Light of the Austrian School of Economics 2021-02-21T14:51:51-03:00 Otavio Ferrari Piaskowski <p>This paper aims to discuss the State’s role in the origin and in the institutional evolution of money in the light of the Austrian School of Economics. This research developed from the context of virtual currencies, which has attracted considerable academic interest in the last few years. Therefore, we employed the theory of the origin of money according to Menger (1985, 2007, 2009), the concept of extended order proposed by Hayek (1948, 1948a, 2017), the theory of market processes as stated by Barbieri (2001), and the theory of institutions developed by Angeli (2007). Considering the context of the virtual currencies and the behavior of the fiat money, it is understood that the State acts as a clog in the process, performed by the market, of the selection of currencies that best carries out their essential functions of medium of exchange, unit of account and storage of value. Similarly, the State harms the process of correction of flaws in the functioning of the financial system.</p> 2021-04-14T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2021 MISES: Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy, Law and Economics Monetary policy and currency (non) neutrality 2021-02-21T14:52:39-03:00 Bernardo Santana Elaine Arantes <p>The purpose of this article is to clarify the relationship between the different views of the following schools: Austrian, Post-Keynesian; New-Classical; and New-Keynesian on the impact of currency on the economy and monetary policy recommendations. The theoretical framework addresses these four schools and allows us to understand their perceptions regarding the neutrality or non-neutrality of money. Differences in perceptions are linked to recommendations or rejections of governmental interference through monetary policies. These perceptions are presented, comparing the long-term effects of monetary expansion according to each school. The role of the Central Bank as a stimulating economic agent according to each school is discussed. Treating money as neutral or non-neutral does not mean having the same view about its economic system impacts. Each school has its hypotheses and a specific and differentiated understanding of currency manipulation consequences through government interventions via accommodative monetary policies. A clear view of money and its role is essential to avoid misguided government policies that at times can aggravate or create more problems than solutions. It is qualitative research with explanatory scope based on a bibliographic survey.</p> 2021-04-13T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2021 MISES: Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy, Law and Economics The Anastomosis of Austrian Entrepreneurship with Organizational Agility 2021-02-02T15:28:00-03:00 Andre Barcaui Dennys Xavier <p>This paper seeks to analyze the concepts of entrepreneurship at the Austrian School under the lens of<br />a contemporary management format called “agility.” The methodological procedure adopted was theoretical,<br />with an exploratory and descriptive character using a bibliographic review of the leading Austrian authors<br />and a bibliometric survey of publications related to agility. From an analytical-interpretative reading, it did an associative analysis of Austrian entrepreneurship with agility. The research findings suggest that the Austrian authors at several points anticipated the ideas proposed by business agility, particularly concerning value creation, customer focus, and adaptation.</p> 2021-04-13T00:00:00-03:00 Copyright (c) 2021 MISES: Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy, Law and Economics Catolicismo Romano e a Livre Iniciativa 2021-02-26T11:31:53-03:00 Andrei Roberto da Silva <p>Resenha do Livro:</p> <p>WOODS JR, Thomas E.
