Lord Miller's review
Jul 25, 2016
Rothbard is a brilliant economist and does not suffer fools. He is bombastic, erudite, humorous, and wields the logic of economic analysis, especially within the Austrian tradition, like a war-hammer. He crushes all foes and explains in painstaking detail the severe consequences of rejecting economic law based upon nothing more than good intentions. Rothbard also distinguishes the limits of utilitarian ethics as typified by his mentor and economic master Ludwig von Mises and shows the ad hoc normative dimension hidden in many supposed 'neutral/scientific' economic analysis. Rothbard covers many topics and ranges for and wide, but he never disrespects his audience nor takes them for granted; he has the heart of a true teacher.
