A Theory of Socialism and Capitalism
TAGS  Calculation and Knowledge Interventionism Political Theory  Hans-Hermann Hoppe's first treatise in English — actually his first book in English — and the one that put him on the map as a social thinker and economist to watch. He argued that there are only two possible archetypes in economic affairs: socialism and capitalism. All systems are combinations of those two types. The capitalist model he defines as pure protection of private property, free association, and exchange — no exceptions. All deviations from that ideal are species of socialism, with public ownership and interference with trade. Narrated by Jim Vann. Download audio file  READ MORE
