    Enemies of Capitalism - Briggs Armstrong - Mises Institute

    Debunks the myth that Greenspan, Bush, Bernanke, or Paulson were anything close to free market capitalists.

    I'm not entirely sure how I could be "several generations too late" in posting an article that says Bush, Paulson, Bernanke, and Greenspan were not really advocates for the free market.

    The Austrian school are themselves rather great enemies of capitalism, considering the lackluster arguments that they offer in its favor. The fact that statists (Barone, Lange, Taylor) were able to best Mises and Hayek so easily does not speak well for that school, and is a major component in their increasing irrelevance.
