    Ce texte répond aux critiques formulées par J.G. Hülsmann à propos de mon article Ludwig von Mises, Théoricien de la Banque Libre. J.G. Hülsmann me reproche une méthode scientifique douteuse sans voir que ses reproches ne sadressent quà luimême. Pour lui répondre, il me suffit de le paraphraser. Le commentaire de Hülsmann a néanmoins un léger mérite, celui de mettre en exergue deux courts passages de loeuvre de Mises que jomets involontairement dans mon article. Aussi il me revient de combler cette lacune, dinterpréter ces deux passages, daffiner et finalement dappuyer le propos et la conclusion de mon article.This article is a reply to J.G. Hülsmanns critics concerning my article Ludwig von Mises, Théoricien de la Banque Libre. J.G. Hülsmann blames me for an uncertain scientific method when these reproaches are aimed at himself. To respond, we just have to paraphrase. Nevertheless, for the credit of Hülsmanns commentary, we have to say that it makes appear two short citations of Mises work that we unintentionally ignore in our article. So, to fill the gap, I have to interpret these citations, improve and finally rest the purpose and the conclusion of my article.
