Chronological Bibliography

1925

ARTICLES:

"Antimarxismus" [Anti-Marxism]. Weltwirtschaftliches Archiv. 21:2(April 1925)266-93. Marx's labor theory of value has been thoroughly refuted by Bohm-Bawerk. His other doctrines are equally unsound. But not only does Marxism have to be rejected. So do all attempts to interfere with the market. Criticisms of Marxism based on nonindividualist assumptions, e.g., Wemer Sombart's work, are of limited value in spite of their erudition. Reprinted in Critique of Interventionism.

"Bemerkungen zum Grundproblem der subjektivistischen Wertlehre" [Remarks on the Fundamental Problem of the Subjective Theory of Value]. Archiv für Sozialwissenschaft und Sozialpolitik. 59:1(February 1928)32-47. Discusses in brief the a priori nature of the subjective theory of value. The aim of the theory of value is to explain prices as they actually are. There is thus no possibility for compromise with romantics such as Othmar Spann. Reprinted in Epistemological Problems of Economics , German version(1933), English translation(1960).

"Neue Schriften zum Problem der sozialistischen Wirtschaftsrechnung" [New Papers on the Problem of Economic Calculation under Socialism]. Archiv für Sozialwissenschaft und Sozialpolitik. 60(1928)187-90. Discusses in brief the a priori nature of the subjective theory of value. The aim of the theory of value is to explain prices as they actually are. There is thus no possibility for compromise with romantics such as Othmar Spann.

"Währung und Finanzen des Bundesstaates Oesterreich" [The Currency and Finances of the Federal State of Austria]. Deutsche Wirtschafts-Zeitung. 25:38/39(September 20, 1928)913-15.

Review of Eduard Heimann's Die sittliche Idee des Klassenkampfes und die Entartung des Kapitalismus [The Ethical Idea of the Class Struggle and the Decline of Capitalism]. Zeitschrift für die gesamte Staatswissenschaft. 85(1928)167-68. Eduard Heimann deserves praise for being more aware of the problems of economic calculation than most socialists. The idea that class cooperation and 'good feeling' can solve economic problems, which Heimann holds along with other religious socialists, is erroneous. Incidentally, Heimann had a high opinion of Mises.

1929

BOOKS:

"Soziologie und Geschichte: Epilog zum Methodenstreit in der Nationalökonomie" [Sociology and History: Epilogue to the Methodological Controversy in Economics]. Archiv für Sozialwissenschaft und Sozialpolitik. 61:3(1929)465-512. A very important piece, probably the most important of Mises's earlier articles on methodology. "Sociology" was Mises's earlier name for what he later called praxeology, i.e., a deductive science of human action. He here criticizes those who deny the need for a deductive approach, attempting to reduce economics to history. These include Sombart and Arthur Vierkandt. Included in Epistemological Problems of Economics .

"Verstaatlichung des Kredits?" [Nationalization of Credit?]. Zeitschrift für Nationalökonomie. 1:3(1929)430-439. A plan to make credit available through government provision, in order to promote increased investment, has aroused much discussion. It is unsound and the work of monetary cranks. Included in 1976 German-language reprint of Critique of Interventionism and also in the 1977 English translation.
