8. Misinterpretation of the Climate of Opinion

Online Text Page from The Ultimate Foundation of Economic Science, Ch. Chapter 5: On Some Popular Errors Concerning the Scope and Method of Economics

One does not explain a doctrine and actions engendered by it if one declares that it was generated by the spirit of the age or by the personal or geographical environment of the actors. In resorting to such interpretations one merely stresses the fact that a definite idea was in agreement with other ideas held at the same time and in the same milieu by other people. What is called the spirit of an age, of the members of a collective, or of a certain milieu is precisely the doctrines prevailing among the individuals concerned.

9. The Role of Time in the Economy

Online Text Page from Epistemological Problems of Economics, Ch. 4. On the Development of the Subjective Theory of Value

Classical economics distinguished three factors of production: land, labor, and capital. Inasmuch as capital can be resolved into land and labor, two factors remain: labor and the "conditions of well-being" made available by nature. If consumption goods are disregarded, these alone, according to the view to be found in the older literature, are the objects of economizing.

The Role of Intellectuals

Online Text Page from What Must Be Done, Ch. What Must Be Done

Before explaining this answer as another step in the direction of this goal, a second sociological fact has to be recognized: the change of the role of intellectuals, of education, and of ideology. As soon as the protection agency becomes a territorial monopolist—that is, a State—it is turned from a genuine protector into a protection racket.
