The Social Framework of the Free Market

A Humane Economy offers an understandable and compelling explanation of how economies operate. Over and over, the great Swiss economist stresses one simple point: You cannot separate economic principles from human behavior.


Wilhelm Röpke

Wilhelm Röpke (1899-1966) was schooled in the tradition of the Austrians and made enormous contributions to the study of political institutions. His powerful anti-Keynesian writings in particular underscore what an outstanding economist he was and the extent to which he was influenced by Mises. Röpke defended sound money and free trade, and attacked welfare. He was a passionate advocate of laissez-faire.
