The Austrian School is a school of economic thought that is based on the analysis of the purposeful actions of individuals (see methodological individualism). It originated in late-19th and early-20th century Vienna with the work of Carl Menger, Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk, Friedrich von Wieser, and others. Current day economists working in this tradition are located in many different countries, but their work is referred to as Austrian economics.
