On Friday, October 8, at 3:00 p.m. CDT, Jeff Deist and Bob Murphy will discuss Mises's views on interventionism and their continued relevance today, particularly after the last year and a half of economic intervention resulting from covid tyranny.
"[Interventionism] preserves some of the labels and the outward appearance of capitalism. It maintains, seemingly and nominally, private ownership of the means of production, prices, wages, interest rates, and profits. In fact, however, nothing counts but the government’s unrestricted autocracy... This is socialism in the outward guise of capitalism. It is the Zwangswirtschaft of Hitler’s German Reich " —Ludwig von Mises, The Middle of the Road Leads to Socialism
The seminar will include time for questions from the audience. Video will be available after on Mises.org.
