Roy A. Childs, Jr. (1949–1992) was a libertarian essayist and critic who counted among his early influences Ayn Rand, Ludwig von Mises, Rose Wilder Lane, and Robert LeFevre. In the 1960s, Childs became friends with Murray Rothbard, and Childs's controversial paper, "The Invisible Hand Strikes Back," was published in the inaugural issue of the Journal of Libertarian Studies. In 1977 he became a research associate of the Center for Libertarian Studies.
Ludwig von Mises: "In the capitalist society there is a place and bread for all. Its ability to expand provides sustenance for every worker. Permanent unemployment is not a feature of free capitalism." - Socialism
