1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By John Matlock on April 7, 2015
Format: Paperback
Written during World War II, von Mises examines the nature of governments that lead to totalitarian rule based on control of the economy. His main point of reference is the Nazi party in Germany but also covers the actions of other states such as Italy and Japan. Less directly, his basic thesis that nearly total control of the economy by a government leads to a situation where the government has to try to use its military power to take over other more productive countries that it can then steal from just to feed its owns citizens.

Obviously these theories lead to the Soviet Union, Cuba, many African states and others that proved to be unable to even feed their citizens.

This book is a reprint of the 1944 edition that is almost uncanny in its prediction of what was going to happen in the following decades.
