The article is a much needed and long overdue acknowledgement and appreciation of Rothbard’s contributions to the theory, including the calculation debate, and practice of socialism. Rothbard ranks as one of the foremost Austrian School economists of the twentieth century, and his contributions to these, as well as other topics, clearly deserve to be better recognized and understood. Boettke and Coyne have performed an important service in presenting and analyzing Rothbard’s contributions in these areas. My remarks regarding the Boettke and Coyne article are directed toward a relatively narrow topic, specifically, the reinterpretation of the socialist calculation debate by Rothbard and others.
