The Doomsday Myth: 10,000 Years

by Charles Maurice, Charles W. Smithsonvia Hoover Institution Press
Friday, June 1, 1984

In The Doomsday Myth, Charles Maurice and Charles Smithson show that although doom merchants have been predicting imminent collapse from resource shortages as long as civilization has existed, no nation has ever fallen because of the depletion of a resource. They also show that government intervention has not been the solution to these crises. Instead, freely functioning markets with individuals acting in their own self-interest have eliminated shortages, and averted doomsday. The free market theme is the same one used by Adam Smith in The Wealth of Nations in 1776, but the need to restate it for new generations is urgent. The authors concluded that a resource-based doomsday will arrive only if we suspend the functioning of free markets.

Bound to Be Free

by Richard B. McKenzievia Hoover Institution Press
Wednesday, January 6, 1982

Why is it that in the land of the free, special interests control what you eat, wear, and drive, while the government tells you how your children will be educated and how much you'll pay for life's essentials? McKenzie argues that the key to each person's freedom is a business community free of government favor as well as interference.
