|Virtual Networks A "Virtual Network" is a group of Think Tanks identified by certain semantic and normative (ideological) commonalities (e.g. climate change scepticism). Such a virtual network constitutes a research field that differs from the study of formal networks. Formal networks are real in the sense of officially acknowledged and immediately open to empirical validation. Virtual networks on the other hand display shared ideas. Social network analysis tools can be applied to find out if or to what extent virtual networks are real networks that display linkages (membership in networks, personnel, resources etc.). Unconnected think tanks in turn can be considered special cases in need of explanation independent from network structures (unless we have to assume invisible, hidden or covered ties).||Paleoliberal think tanks|
Ludwig von Mises Japan is the academic arm of the Tokyo Liberty Club. On facebook they say "We are inspired by, but not formally affiliated with, The Ludwig von Mises Institute, which is the research and educational center of classical liberalism and the Austrian School of economics".
