: Whats obvious is somehow, C.P. can criticize an entire school of thought he doesn't know a damn thing about... atleast some of us have tried to read Von Mises.

CP: no I havent read von Mises and you probably havent run a successfull business either. I've known many like that with no real life experience just books and theory. I've had communist economics professors who showed me the flaws of capitilism and at the time I believed them just as you believe them now. However I grew up and worked in the real world and discovered all these theories are great reading but they simply do not work.
Show me where it has worked. I am not seeing any new ideas in here that will work better than free markets in practice.
