19 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents the theoretical and practical arguments for liberalism. Mises contrasts liberalism with other conceivable systems of social organization such as socialism, communism, and fascism.

Serves as a primer of the fundamental thought of Ludwig von Mises and an anthology of the writings of the best-known exponent of the Austrian School of economics. This volume contains forty-seven articles, and includes Mises's expositions of the role of government, his discussion of inequality of wealth, inflation, socialism, welfare, and more. This work serves as both a primer of the fundamental thought of Ludwig von Mises and an anthology of the writings of perhaps the best-known exponent of what is now known as the Austrian School of economics. This volume contains forty-seven articles edited by Mises scholar Bettina Bien Greaves. Among them are Mises's expositions of the role of government, his discussion of inequality of wealth, inflation, socialism, welfare, and economic education, as well as his exploration of the 'deeper' significance of economics as it affects seemingly non-economic relations between human beings. These papers are essential reading for students of economic freedom and the science of human action

The anti-capitalistic mentality by Ludwig Von Mises( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 segments of the general population 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
Theory and history; an interpretation of social and economic evolution by Ludwig Von Mises( Book )

15 editions published between 1958 and 2008 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theory and History is primarily a critique of Karl Marx, his materialism, and his prediction of the inevitability of socialism. Marx attributes the creation of tools and machines, as well as the economic structure of society, to undefined "material productive forces;" Mises rejects this materialistic view; he points out that tools and machines are actually created by individuals acting on the basis of non-materialistic ideas. This book discusses the theory of economics, i.e., the study of purposive human action, and with history, the record of the past actions of individuals. All actions are determined by ideas. Thoughts and ideas are "real things," Mises writes. "Although intangible and immaterial, they are factors in bringing about changes in the realm, of tangible and material things." Rather than rejecting the study of historical change as a "useless pastime," Mises considers it of the utmost practical importance. "History looks backward into the past, but the lesson it teaches concerns things to come." History opens the mind to an understanding of human nature, increases wisdom, and distinguishes civilized man from the barbarian. Moreover, historical knowledge is of the utmost importance in helping to anticipate and plan for the future. -- Publisher description
Planning for freedom : let the market system work : a collection of essays and addresses by Ludwig Von Mises( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this anthology, Mises offers an articulate and accessible introduction to and critique of two topics he considers especially important: inflation and government interventionism. According to Mises, inflation, that is monetary expansion, is destructive; it destroys savings and investment, which are the basis for production and prosperity. Government controls and economic planning never accomplish what their proponents intend. Mises consistently argues that the solution to government intervention is free markets and free enterprise, which call for reforming government. For that, ideas must be changed to "let the market system work." There is no better "planning for freedom" than this. - Publisher
Nation, state, and economy : contributions to the politics and history of our time by Ludwig Von Mises( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nation, State, and Economy, published less than a year after Austria's defeat in World War I, examines and compares prewar and postwar economic conditions and explicates Mises's theory that each country's prosperity supports rather than undercuts the prosperity of other countries. Mises's humanitarian recommendations in this book, born from a classical liberal perspective, provide a striking example of how supposedly "hardnosed" economic theory, based on the reality of experience, is in fact far more supportive of human flourishing than seemingly more "idealistic" but actually impractical social theories. Specifically, Mises warned of the consequences of the punitive terms of the Treaty of Versailles by victors more interested in punishing their defeated enemies than in building a Europe that would be able to meet the challenges of the future. With the benefit of hindsight we see how different European and world history might have been

Omnipotent government, the rise of the total state and total war by Ludwig Von Mises( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Mises's primary target is Nazism, there is a much broader application for his theories regarding the stifling effect totalitarian governments have on the development of technologies for improving the well-being of citizens. What he wrote in 1944 is still true today: "Mankind has not reached the stage of ultimate technological perfection. There is ample room for further progress and for further improvement of the standards of living. The creative and inventive spirit ... flourishes only where there is economic freedom."
