  • WWII Blockade of Britain, Rationing, Agriculture, etc.

    So I've been watching a documentary series called "Wartime Farm" from the BBC. It's quite enjoyable (as were the previous ones: Victorian Farm, Edwardian Farm, etc). Wartime Farm of course deals constantly with the rationing, the regulations and such imposed by the central agricultural...

  • Non-Interventionist Starter Kit

    My father, an avid reader of history and unwitting owner of many Ludwig von Mises published works, still has trouble getting on the same page as me in regards to American military excesses. Although he is not a Neo-con, per se, he believes that interventionism is justifiable in certain circumstances...

  • The Federal Reserve has been lifted into outer space by intergalactic invaders.... what happens next?

    Here's a post I saw on Yahoo! Answers the other day I haven't considered it yet, but what does happen next? This post jumps out: "If Ron Paul holds the view that abolishing a central bank is a good idea, then he is even more naive than I gave him credit for. Money has the property of collecting...

  • Re: WWII Ended the Great Depression

    Funny you should ask...There was a Mises Daily published on this a little more than a week ago: World War II Did Not End the Great Depression (also, Tom Woods has spoken a lot on this...)

  • WWII Ended the Great Depression

    Ok, so if my understanding is correct, Higgs argues that World War II did in fact stimulate a recovery, just not in the sense that Keynesians believe. The war essentially allowed for a renewed confidence in America's ability to produce, which, in combination with "forced savings," allowed...

  • Icebreaker: Who Started the Second World War?

    Has anyone on here read Viktor Surovov's controversial book Icebreaker: Who Started the Second World War? ? Link: http://www.amazon.com/Icebreaker-Who-Started-Second-World/dp/0241126223 . It looks incredibly interesting. A very different take on WWII than we're taught in school. If anyone has...

  • Re: Did FDR Force Japan to Bomb Us By Cutting Off Their Oil Supply?

    [quote user="limitgov"] Could Japan simply have gotten their oil from another supplier? Did they really need to bomb us? [/quote] It is easy to get bogged down in "who, what, why,if" type speculations about these and other historical events. But in my opinion the reason{s} for the...

  • Re: Was it right of the US to enter WW2?

    I would argue (from the minarchist perspective that a state is necessary) that fighting the Japanese was necessary. Japan attacked American soil, and seemed to have every intent of conquering and subjugating America. Fighting the Japanese was an act of self-defense, in terms of nations being "selves"...

  • 1948 recession and post WWII economy
