Quote of the Day: The confusion of the anti-globalist


"The great age of foreign investment came to an inglorious end when the 20th century's doctrinaires were no longer prepared to see any difference between the devastation of a country by military action and the investment of foreign capital for the construction of factories and transportation facilities. Each of these two entirely different procedures is called conquest and imperialism."
~ Ludwig Von Mises, writing in 1966 on 'The Outlook for Saving & Investment'
