The phrase "last knight of liberalism" was commonly applied to the person and writings of Ludwig von Mises during his last years in Vienna. It implied that he was one of the few defenders of 19th-century style laissez-faire economics and liberal economic policy remaining in the world, along with the implication that he would have no disciples in the years ahead. The phrase serves as the title of Jorg Guido Hulsmann's 2007 biography of Mises.
