As announced on our most recent shows, we will be transitioning “the Read Rothbard Podcast” to audiobooks of Murray’s books and articles.
The second post is his “Economic Depressions: Their Cause and Cure” which is a great follow-up to last week’s “Anatomy of the State”. This gives a cogent understanding of where market-cycles come from, why they occur and how to prevent them.
The former “Read Rothbard Podcast” where we talk about movies from an anarcho-capitalist perspective will be re-launched as “the Actual Anarchy Podcast”.
Look for more audiobook versions of a Murray Rothbard books and articles posting on Fridays each week.
More information to come, but here are the details about this book:
Economic Depressions: Their Cause and Cure
by Murray N. Rothbard
Murray Rothbard was the master of reducing complicated theories to their very essence while retaining theoretical rigor, and this essay is a case in point. It was originally written in 1969 and published in the form of a tiny book that achieved a huge circulation. Its continued relevance speaks to an aspect of the Austrian theory that other theories can’t boast. It is a real theory that applies across time and place, and its persuasive power is not contingent on the particulars of any individual boom-bust cycle.
Narrated by Harold Fritsche. Music by Kevin McLeod.

Read Rothbard is comprised of a small group of voluntaryists who are fans of Murray N. Rothbard. We curate content on the www.ReadRothbard.com site including books, lectures, articles, speeches, and we make a weekly podcast based on his free-market approach to economics. Our focus is on education and how advancement in technology improves the living standards of the average person.
The Read Rothbard Podcast is all about Maximum Freedom. We look at movies and current events from a Rothbardian Anarchist perspective. If it’s voluntary, we’re cool with it. If it’s not, then it violated the Non-Aggression Principle and Property Rights – the core tenants of Libertarian Theory – and hence – human freedom.
