Professor Hoppe’s latest book, The Great Fiction: Property, Economy, Society, and the Politics of Decline, was published today by Laissez Faire Books. It is available for purchase in print or ebook form here; a free epub of the book, along with epubs of many other books, is available to members of the Laissez Faire Club.
As Jeff Tucker’s Editorial Preface indicates:
The title comes from a quotation by Frederic Bastiat, the 19th century economist and pamphleteer: “The state is the great fiction by which everyone seeks to live at the expense of everyone else.”
