  4. ^ “...we must greet enthusiastically the recent publishing of six essays written by Ludwig von Mises in the 1920s. Arlington House Publishers and translator Professor Hans Sennholz are to be congratulated for making these essays available to a whole new generation of economists and policymakers who could still profit, apparently, from their insightful analysis.”
