Is there any chance of the Mises Institution releasing a spanish edition of Human Action? Perhaps in the nifty paperback version? I know that the Mexican Mexican Institution had it on hardcover, but their version was for about 80$.

Pardons. The Mexican Mises Institute; they've gone defunct in the past year I believe. As I stated in my original post, they were the only ones that I knew of printing the spanish translation of Human Action. Does anyone know if there are any plans for a new printing by the American or other counterparts?

Edit: After some more searching it seems that the Spanish Mises also has a spanish version for 70 euro.

I know you're looking for a hard copy, but does this help?

There's a Mexican Mises institute?

To paraphrase Marc Faber: We're all doomed, but that doesn't mean that we can't make money in the process.

There was, it's defunct now. They hosted a yearly Milton Friedman Award and dinner. If I remember correctly they were based in Monterey.

Edit: Correction, it was based in the DF and its proper name was The Cultural Institute of Ludwig von Mises. It actually printed several spanish translations of Mises and other Austrian works. Not exactly the best evidence, but below reference the existence of the Institute before it became defunct.

There is also a Mises Institute of Ecuador.  You might contact someone there as well.  (Mises Global)

I've sent an inquiry to Ecuador. By the look of their website they don't seem to publish any books though.

On the subject of translations, does anyone know which other languages Human Action/Mises' work has been translated into? I know besides the English and Spanish versions there is a Catalan. Czech, Portuguese and Polish version. Is there a german translation of it? Not of the work which Mises based Human Action on, National Economy I believe, but a translation of Human Action.
