Eugen Ritter von Böhm-Bawerk (12 February 1851–27 August 1914) was an Austrian economist best known for his three-volume work Capital and Interest. He was a disciple of Carl Menger and made important contributions to the theories of subjective value, capital and interest, and criticized strongly the theories of Karl Marx. He was the mentor of Ludwig von Mises. Böhm-Bawerk served as the Austrian Minister of Finance from 1895 to 1904, and was pictured on the 100 schilling note until the introduction of the Euro.
