The Progressive Era | Chapter 1: Railroads: The First Big Business and the Failure of the Cartels
Progressivism brought the triumph of institutionalized racism, the disfranchising of blacks in the South, the cutting off of immigration, the building up of trade unions by the federal government into a tripartite of big government, big business, big union alliance, the glorifying of military virtues and conscription, and a drive for American expansion abroad. In short, the Progressive era ushered the modern American politico-economic system into being. http://mises.orgPlaylist link for complete presentation: http://tinyurl.com/wd53r7vFull text of "The Progressive Era" available online:HTML version: http://tinyurl.com/ydhn5aobPDF version: http://tinyurl.com/v2873ayEPUB version: http://tinyurl.com/v5pukey* * * * *Murray N. Rothbard (1926-1995) was America's greatest radical libertarian author -- writing authoritatively about ethics, philosophy, economics, American history, and the history of ideas. He presented the most fundamental challenge to the legitimacy of government, and he refined thinking about the self-ownership and non-coercion principles.Links to more online writings by Murray Rothbard:Man, Economy, and State: A Treatise on Economicshttp://tinyurl.com/y8zg569hAudio version: http://tinyurl.com/axhdzg3For a New Liberty: The Libertarian Manifestohttp://tinyurl.com/y7mpkkajAudio version: http://tinyurl.com/ph9k2zuThe Ethics of Libertyhttp://tinyurl.com/pekmz3jAudio version: http://tinyurl.com/pwt6pzzThe Case Against the Fedhttp://tinyurl.com/r6phs4bAudio version: http://tinyurl.com/na9ds33What Has Government Done to Our Money?http://tinyurl.com/p3mkr6zAudio version: http://tinyurl.com/pku6eypEconomic Thought Before Adam Smith: An Austrian Perspective on the History of Economic Thought, Vol. Ihttp://tinyurl.com/ngqzfupAudio version: http://tinyurl.com/a3obfguClassical Economics: An Austrian Perspective on the History of Economic Thought, Vol. IIhttp://tinyurl.com/np6a898Audio version: http://tinyurl.com/bd44b6sA History of Money and Banking in the United Stateshttp://tinyurl.com/ot23t9pAudio version: http://tinyurl.com/o8xj73sThe Betrayal of the American Righthttp://tinyurl.com/r33fgptAudio version: http://tinyurl.com/yx6vjudzConceived in Liberty, Vol. 1http://tinyurl.com/prrc32pAudio version: http://tinyurl.com/nhv65atConceived in Liberty, Vol. 2http://tinyurl.com/nh8bst5Audio version: http://tinyurl.com/pdo4xupConceived in Liberty, Vol. 3http://tinyurl.com/qj9dfhmAudio version: http://tinyurl.com/q5kw4keConceived in Liberty, Vol.4http://tinyurl.com/pkhlb2pAudio version: http://tinyurl.com/ns5gkuvConceived in Liberty, Vol. 5http://tinyurl.com/tuel93cAudio version: http://tinyurl.com/qtlup2hAnatomy of the Statehttp://tinyurl.com/tjvfrp4Ludwig von Mises: Scholar, Creator, Herohttp://tinyurl.com/obyk7ypThe Origins of Individualist Anarchism in Americahttp://tinyurl.com/wdwyym9Mises and Austrian Economicshttp://tinyurl.com/yynktddeWar Collectivismhttp://tinyurl.com/rgkzu7xTen Great Economic Mythshttp://tinyurl.com/nnr9dh9The Economics of Warhttp://tinyurl.com/otzpgctEconomic Depressions: Their Cause and Curehttp://tinyurl.com/ogo5ku2Education: Free and Compulsoryhttp://tinyurl.com/qmojaf2Science, Technology, and Governmenthttp://tinyurl.com/qof8f5pLeft, Right, and the Prospects for Libertyhttp://tinyurl.com/pdxlthgMyth and Truth About Libertarianismhttp://tinyurl.com/ybbop99uNations by Consent: Decomposing the Nation-Statehttp://tinyurl.com/htdmzagWar, Peace, and the Statehttp://tinyurl.com/jr6kp4gKingdom Come: The Politics of the Millenniumhttp://tinyurl.com/nhps5voEgalitarianism as a Revolt Against Naturehttp://tinyurl.com/oqxsjl3Murray N.
