Overview

Roepke's The Social Crisis of Our Time is a series of blasts against the "malfor-mations" of economics: the Nazi and Communist forms of collectivism both come in for severe criticism. Roepke shows the process by which the Western liberal tradition itself makes possible these rebellions against open economic systems. The drive toward social welfare, full employment policies, and the state management of fi scal fl uctuations all lead away from free societies no less than market economies.
