NEW BOOKS AND ARTICLES
THE FOLLOWING IS A SELECT LIST OF BOOKS AND ARTICLES WHICH, IN THE OPINION OF THE EDITORS, MAY BE OF INTEREST TO OUR READERS.
Yale Brozen, Automation: The Impact of Technological Change (Washington, D.C.: American Enterprise Institute, 1963), $1.00. A professional economist analyzes the arguments on automation, pro and con, and cites some remarkable statistics in its behalf. A noteworthy study.
James Dugan, American Viking (New York: Harper, 1963). The saga of the shipping magnate Hans Isbrandtsen, the rugged individualist who successfully challenged the international shipping cartel and took on the meddling bureaucrats of many nations with less success.
F. A. Hayek, ed., Capitalism and the Historians (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1963), $1.50, paper. A reprint of six essays, examining the “supreme myth which more than any other has served to discredit the economic system to which we owe our present-day civilization . . . the legend of the deterioration of the position of the working class in consequence of the rise of ‘capitalism’ . . .” Contributors to this valuable symposium are T. S. Ashton, Louis Hacker, W. H. Hutt, Bertrand de Jouvenal and the editor.
Helmut Schoeck and James W. Wiggins, eds., The New Argument in Economics: The Public vs. the Private Sector (Princeton, N. J.: Van Nostrand, 1963), $5.95. The latest in the stimulating and high-level symposia on various philosophical and political subjects edited by the two Emory University sociologists. This volume contains papers by George Stigler, W. Allen Wallis, Ernest van den Haag, and others, dissecting the “public squalor argument.”
Neil McInnes, “Half a Century of Rent Control,” Barron’s, July 8, 1963. A review of French rent control policies, which have “turned France into a nation of slum-dwellers.”
Benjamin A. Rogge, “Is Economic Freedom Possible?” The Freeman, April, 1963 (free copy on request from Foundation for Economic Education, Irvington-on-Hudson, New York). An examination of the charge that private monopoly will inevitably make free enterprise impossible.
Richard M. Weaver, “Two Types of American Individualism,” Modern Age, Spring, 1963. In his last published article, Prof. Weaver contrasts the aristocratic individualism of John Randolph with the “high but irresponsible thinking of Thoreau,” and argues for reinstitution of the former in our society, which has too curtly dismissed both. The same issue of Modern Age contains an article by A. A. Shenfield, “Economic Planning in Great Britain: Pretense and Reality.” Here the author, a noted English economist, reviews the elusive goals and chaotic results of Labor Party policies, and lauds the re-emergence of liberal principles up until 1955 under the Conservative Party Regrettably, he observes, it has since relapsed into a fascination with centralized planning, which often seems to have “the power of magic over men’s minds—and the inability of magic to master men’s problems.”
The fourth volume of The Journal of Law and Economics (dated Autumn, 1961) has been issued, and includes articles by George Stigler, Milton Friedman, and others. Of all American scholarly journals, this annual publication is undoubtedly the one most solidly in the classical liberal tradition. A complete set (four numbers) may be obtained for $10 (students, $4) by writing: Prof. Aaron Director, The Journal of Law and Economics, University of Chicago Law School, Chicago 37, Illinois.
In the Coming Year . . .
NEW INDIVIDUALIST REVIEW will NOT publish articles by James Baldwin, Ralph McGill, Walter Lippmann, J. William Fulbright, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Gore Vidal, Jean-Paul Sartre, Nehru, or Howard N’Bongo-Bongo, Prime Minister of Anthropophagia;
NIR will not tell you how affluent you are, or urge you to write your Congressman to triple your income-tax, so that the country can eliminate squalor in the public sector;
NIR will not attempt to distinguish between in-itself and for-itself in the Theatre of the Absurd, or compare Bertholt Brecht favorably with Shakespeare;
NIR will not claim that Portuguese rule in Angola is the single greatest threat to world peace today;
NIR will not try to convert you to Zen Buddhism;
NIR will not assert that American businessmen are morally inferior to the Mau Mau.
This alone would be worth the price of a subscription, even if we sent you 60 pages of blank paper every three months. (After all, how many other magazines can make this guarantee: DOUBLE YOUR MONEY BACK if we break any of these promises.) But we do more—we send you a magazine full of thoughtful and thought-provoking discussions of individualist ideas and proposals, by some of the leading conservative and libertarian writers of today and tomorrow—articles like those in the issue you’ve just read.
HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY LIVE WITHOUT NIR? SUBSCRIBE TODAY!
Society lives and acts only in individuals . . . Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders; no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping toward destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interests, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle. None can stand aside with unconcern; the interests of everyone hang on the result. Whether he chooses or not, every man is drawn into the great historical struggle, the decisive battle (between freedom and slavery) into which our epoch has plunged us.
—Ludwig Von Mises
