The twentieth century revolution in America was bureaucratic, not ideological. And in 1944, a new American—Ludwig von Mises—published Bureaucracy, the most important and devastating critique of administrative rule ever written. Clocking in at just over 130 pages, this is Mises at his hard-hitting best. Professor William Anderson joins the Human Action Podcast for an in-depth discussion of both the book and the bureaucratic capture of America it warned against.
