John Nash (“A Beautiful Mind”): Influenced by Austrian economics

At the following link find a paper that finds a connection between Ludwig von Mises and John Nash, whose life was featured in the book and movie “A Beautiful Mind”. It wraps up with a quote from John Nash referring to his teacher from Austria, and distinguishing Austrian economics from ¬†mainstream economic thought, and crediting its influence in his thinking. Nash received a Nobel Prize in Economics.
