When the great economist and slayer of Socialist mythology Ludwig von Mises tells us:
“History speaks only to those people who know how to interpret it on the ground of correct theories.”
He is referring to men like Dr. Michael Rectenwald. Michael’s understanding of the socioeconomic order as elucidated by the great ‘Austrian Economists’ like Mises thus providing the ‘correct theories’, and historical research, make Michael one of today’s leading intellectuals and insightful critics of the current misguided wave of coercive global central planning commonly referred to as ‘The Great Reset’.
