Professor Peter Klein from Baylor University joins the show to discuss Part Six of Human Action, where Mises presents his exposition of interventionism in all its manifestations. Mises breaks socialism down into Soviet and German versions; the first purely bureaucratic (state ownership) and the second nominally private but state-directed. He gives us a contrasting definition of laissez-faire, the choice of freedom over government omnipotence. Successive chapters take readers through taxation, restrictionism (tariffs, regulations, labor laws), and price controls (goods, wages, interest rates).
Dr. Klein is a fascinating guest with great insights into Mises and "the Hampered Market Economy." This is a conversation you don't want to miss!
