Shorter Classics of Eugen von Boehm-Bawerk, Vol. 1

Bohm-Bawerk individual essays have been combined in Shorter Classics. This volume represents his expansion, examination, and improvement of his system. It includes the famous essay on “Karl Marx and the Close of his System,” which undoubtedly is the best-known critique of Marx ever written, and four other sagacious essays: “The Austrian Economists” “Whether Legal Rights and Relationships are Economic Goods” “The Ultimate Standard of Value” “Control or Economic Law?”

In the last essay, published posthumously, Bohm-Bawerk analyzed the crucial questions of government intervention: can political law, regulation or coercion of any kind negate or overwhelm “economic law?” What are the consequences of government intervention or labor union coercion on economic production and individual income? Can government controls or union restraints raise the incomes and improve the conditions of all working people? In the wide realm of economics there are no more important questions than these.

Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk
Eugen Böhm Ritter von Bawerk was the Austrian Minister of Finance intermittently from 1895 to 1904, and also wrote a series of extensive critiques of Marxism. “Value does not come out of the workshop, but out of the wants that goods satisfy” The quote by Mr Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk is as true today as it was more than 100 years ago. This blog is not an attempt to revive mr Böhm-Bawerks thoughts, life and deeds, but from a sober view of the world comment on and analyze ongoing events.
