The technique of the historicists' indictment of capitalism is simple indeed. They take all its achievements for granted but blame it for the disappearance of some enjoyments that are incompatible with it and for some imperfections that still may disfigure its products, writes Ludwig von Mises (1881–1973).

This audio Mises Daily, excerpted from the audiobook version, is narrated by John Pruden.
