Socialism: Communist, Conservative and Social-Democratic Style

This past Saturday I was again blessed to be a guest on the program A Plain Answer. The show is broadcast on the Redeemer Broadcasting radio network. Dan Elmendorf and I talk about socialism in some of its several varieties. This program is as timely as our current election cycle You can listen to the discussion by clicking here.

Chapter 18 of my book Foundations of Economics: A Christian View is devoted to this subject. In it, I discuss both the economics and ethics of socialism. For those looking for an in-depth investigation into various forms of socialism and its alternative, the free market, I recommend Hans-Hermann Hoppe's A Theory of Socialism and Capitalism.
