Description:
Professor Mises searches for the roots and consequences of the common anti-capitalist bias. What makes so many people unhappy in the private property order? It is precisely the fact that it grants to everyone the opportunity to secure maximum income and obtain the most desirable position. In such a system, the failures need a scapegoat. People whose ambitions have not been fully satisfied and whose dreams are not fully realized blame the system. Frustrated intellectuals, writers, and literati become vocal foes of the system.
