Raico and Hoppe


Robert Wenzel reviews Ralph Raico's new book, Classical Liberalism and the Austrian School,  a a masterful summary and synthesis of Raico's lifetime work. The book reflects not only Raico's erudition and keen intellect, but also his wisdom and dry wit. Notes Wenzel: "in addition to the wit of Raico that keeps you turning the pages for more, I consider Raico a Grand Master quotesmith. He is a master at the demolition of  incorrect ideas by placing a well selected quote at the exact spot where it will cause a bad idea to come crumbling down at freefall speed."

Also, here's Andy Duncan talking about Hans Hoppe's Democracy: The God that Failed, the book Alberto Mingardi calls "[t]he ultimate account of what democracy really amounts to."
