Fascists Hate Capitalism.


From the Ludwig Von Mises Institute on Youtube:

“Capitalism was seen as a bad episode…the future belonged to the state…all others were to be regulated in a way that would prevent businessmen from exploiting workers and consumers.”

“Fascists hated laissez-faire capitalism.”

This short program (about 37minutes) on Ludwig Von Mises highlights many of his economic ideas and how the free-market was just as suspect and distrusted by the German and Austrian society of the early 20th century as it seems to be today in our 21st century society.
