Ludwig Von Mises

The Anti-Capitalistic Mentality

The Anti-Capitalistic Mentality by Austrian School economist and libertarian thinker Ludwig von Mises is an investigation into the psychological roots of the anti-capitalistic stance that is widespread in the general populations of the capitalist world. Von Mises suggests various reasons for this mentality, primarily his claim that free competition in the market economy allows no excuses of one's failures. Rather, he argues, it creates great incentive for one's desire for improvement and greater effort to succeed, as well as a greater reward for that success.

    People must fight for something that they want to achieve, not simply reject an evil, however bad it may be.

    It never occurred to these authors that their narration implicitly describes all other Americans as perfect idiots whom every rascal can easily dupe.
