This remarkable book reflects the author's enthusiasm for liberty and his vast intellectual curiosity. I propose to discuss only a few of the book's central insights, but only reading the book will adequately convey Peter Bos's intellectual range.
Like Mises, Bos emphasizes that the free market economy, by taking full advantage of the division of labor, greatly increases prosperity. "In those countries where the exchange of goods and services has been relatively unhampered, capitalism, through investment and the division of labor and skills, has produced a standard of living unimagined even a few decades ago."
