In this paper, we reconsider Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek's theories of business cycles in the light of their methodological approach. In the first part, we clarify Mises and Hayek's methodological frameworks in order to provide a better understanding of their programmatic approach of business cycles. The second part is dedicated to their respective theoretical framework, as applied to capital, interest and monetary theory. Finally, in the last part, we investigate the mechanisms at work in Mises and Hayek's explanations of the different hases of the trade cycle, by underlying the role played by knowledge and individual behaviour within marketadjustments.
