Friedrich  A. Hayek  was  an  Austrian and  received  a  Nobel Prize  in
Economics  for his  economic  theory  of the  business  cycle, which  he
developed  based on  Ludwig von  Mises' Austrian  Business Cycle  (ABC).
Clearly, other economic schools of thought have more recognition.

Also, with respect to belief... there were quite a few *real* economists
who  believed in  the  economics  of Communism  and  Socialism until  it
imploded economically. :-)
