The American Economy and the End of Laissez-Faire: 1870 to World War II
11. Woodrow Wilson and World War I
Lecture by Murray N. Rothbard
Where did Benjamin Strong – head of the Fed – come from? Rothbard continues to reveal the individuals who shaped our world and wars. Morgan’s empire brought us the irrational and useless WWI. Foreign policy today rests upon this Morgan outlook. The Versailles Treaty was a harsh thoughtless division of lands and economies. Many powerful politicians get their start under Wilson.
Roosevelt and Hoover were both progressive Wilsonians. 1913 gave us the Fed and the income tax.
Lecture 11 of 13 presented in Fall of 1986 at the New York Polytechnic University.

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.
