Abstract

Hans Herman Hoppe0 Reviewed by Walter Block00 In the pantheon of modern Austrian-Libertarianism, first there was Mises. He rigorously applied praxeology to realms of economics never before touched by such insights {e.g. money), and uncompromisingly applied free market principles to the issues ot the day (e.g. business cycles, socialism). His magnum opus Human Action, plus numerous other major works, constitute a body of thought unmatched to this day. Then came Rothbard. A veritable one man free enterprise industry, his Man, Economy and State is but the tip of the iceberg of a stream of publications over four decades which have changed the terrain not only of libertarianism in particular, but of the entire political economic edifice in general.

These two are truly "hard acts to follow". But with the publication of The Economics and Ethics of Private Property, Hoppe bids fair to one day claiming the mantle of worthy successor to these two pathbreaking thinkers. Over the years Hoppe has proven himself a non compromising radical free market advocate, and this
