This week, Mises Weekends features a 1988 lecture from Dr. Hans-Hermann Hoppe on Marxist and Austrian class analysis.

It might surprise some that Dr. Hoppe sees some "intellectual affinities" between Austrianism and Marxism, in the way that each identifies exploitation among a ruling class. Of course, for Austrians, we identify that it is the state — not the bourgeois — that is the threat to the masses. Tune in for a fascinating talk.
