We continue our survey of Human Action by finishing up Part Six of the book, Mises’s analysis of interventionism—or the so-called “third way” between capitalism and socialism.
Mises exposes how state intervention in the market economy makes us all poorer, even while it claims to act against poverty and inequality on behalf of social justice. That perverse “justice” takes the form of currency manipulation, confiscation of land and capital, protectionism for syndicates and unions, and civilization-destroying total wars. This is a solo episode with Jeff Deist, who enjoys Mises’s demolition of the hampered market economy masquerading as laissez-faire capitalism.
