Abstract

Lieben was born on 6 October 1842, in Vienna; he died there on 11 November 1919. After studying mathematics and engineering sciences, he became a partner in the Jewish family bank and a respected member of the Viennese business community. In 1892 he advocated the adoption of a gold standard. He married late and had no children. He seems to have been of scholarly and artistic tastes, more contemplative than active.
