Yuri Maltsev is one of the most underappreciated personages to come out of the Mises Institute.
No one is able to make socialism/Sovietism as horrifying and hilarious at the same time as Yuri Maltsev.

Here are some of my favorite Maltsev speeches:

Inflation and the Bolsheviks

What Soviet Agriculture Teaches Us

Selling Liberty: National Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

Too Big Not to Fail: Imperial Governments from Moscow to Washington

Traveling Down the Road to Serfdom: History of Socialism from Marx to Obama

Friedrich Hayek's "The Road to Serfdom" was published 70 years ago (March 1944).

The following presentations regarding Hayek's classic were recorded at the Mises Institute's 2014 Austrian Economics Research Conference.

Requiescat en pace.

We can't afford to lose too many voices like his - survivors of Soviet communism who can tell us exactly what Marxism inevitably becomes...
