On September 29, 2020 we celebrated 139 years from the birth of the economist Ludwig von Mises. Among other things, he was one of the first economists who systematically studied the phenomenon of bureaucracy. He published his findings in the book Bureaucracy. Therefore, we have decided to celebrate the International Bureaucracy Day on this date.
It has ambition to be a moral encouragement for entrepreneurs, accountants, administrators, lawyers and all those who are forced to sacrifice the precious time of their lives on the altar of bureaucracy by filling out of forms and documents.
Our ultimate goal is to turn this commemoration into an international event. Therefore, we contacted several foreign organizations with the offer of parallel co-organization of the International Bureaucracy Day in many countries.
The International Bureaucracy Day has been celebrated since 2016, attracting large interest by media and public in the Streets of Bratislava (please turn on English subtitles).
