Collectivism and interventionism emphasize the importance of national boundaries. Indeed, they make territorial expansion once more worthwhile because, within the wider area, there are more resources and a greater scope for planning, writes Michael A. Heilperin.

This audio Mises Daily is narrated by Jeff Riggenbach.


Michael A. Heilperin

Michael Heilperin was born in 1909 in Warsaw, Poland. He was a friend and colleague of Ludwig von Mises's in Geneva, and his specialization was the international monetary system. He applied the Austrian theory of the business cycle along with his knowledge of the balance of payments to warn against the rise of monetary nationalism. See his literature archive.
