The Social Crisis of Our Time
The Social Crisis of Our Time
By Wilhelm Röpke
University of Chicago Press, 1950, 260 pp

Written originally in 1941, this analysis of the world's plight by an eminent Geneva economist seeks to define "an economic and social structure which releases us from the sterile 'either-or' of collectivism and laissez-faire." In general, the author remains loyal to the ideals of a free market economy, multilateralism and the Redemptio Proletariorum.
