George Reisman on Capitalism’s Bad Rep

I could have tried to write a treatise on how the current financial crisis is being positioned by our media and political machines as the last, great failure of laissez-faire capitalism. I don’t need to, however, because George Reisman, perhaps the foremost economist of our time, has already done it for me.

I won’t bother posting any clips, because you really just need to read the whole thing. I don’t believe I’m being overly dramatic when I say that the future of America as envisioned by the Founders depends on these kinds of ideas getting widespread distribution.

This blog won’t do it, of course. I think I’m averaging five visitors a day so far. But, if you know of someone who can post this more broadly, please send a link to Reisman’s blog.
