The Clash of Group Interests and Other Essays by Ludwig von Mises

April 13, 2004 by

New Online (in text and pdf). From the Preface by Murray Rothbard:

Mises’s notable theory of classes has been curiously neglected by most of his followers. By bringing it back into prominence, we have to abandon the cozy view that all of us, we and our privileged rulers alike, are in a continuing harmony of interest. By amending Mises’ theory to account for time preference and other problems in his “rightly under­stood” analysis, we conclude with the still less cozy view that the in­terests of the State privileged and of the rest of Society are at logger­heads. And further, that only moral principles beyond utilitarianism can ultimately settle the dispute between them.
