Something Austrians, Socialists, and I Can Apparently Agree On

"It will be evident, even in the socialist society, that 1,000 hectolitres of wine are better than 800"

- Ludwig von Mises, Economic Calculation in the Socialist Commonwealth

True, it's only monotonic preferences. But that's still something. Plus it's wine.


  1. Since when do you bother with Mises?

  2. As I understand, Daniel has copies of Human Action and other books of von Mises with him.

  3. I actually can't claim to own a single book of Mises's - but thanks to the Ludwig von Mises Institute I don't have to.

  4. I would think that one day you would just get tired of me referring Human Action to you day in and day out and just read the darned thing.
