Dr. Tom DiLorenzo has a fantastic new book out entitled The Problem with Socialism, and his talk summarizing it was a great hit recently at Mises University. This is Tom at his best: witty and provocative, but always bravely revisionist when it comes to skewering sacred cows like welfare, minimum wage, and progressive income taxes. His book—and this talk—are a must for anyone who wants a concise and easy refutation of the enduring myths surrounding socialism.

Note: The views expressed on Mises.org are not necessarily those of the Mises Institute.
