Power and Market: Government and the Economy
by Murray Rothbard
Publisher: Von Mises Institute 2007
Number of pages: 346
What can government do to enhance social and economic well being? Nothing, says Murray N. Rothbard. Power and Market contains the proof. It will inoculate the reader against the even the slightest temptation to invoke the state as a solution to any social or economic problem. It is ultimate manual for completely de-mystifying the myth of the state. The Rothbardian claim is perhaps the most radical made in the history of political economy.
